Check out the amazing list of entertainers coming for this year's festival


ICONIC: Chunky Custard will be adding some retro vibe to the 2018 Whyalla uneARTh Festival

The line-up for this year’s Whyalla uneARTh Festival has been released and it’s pretty damn chunky!

Backing up from last year’s outstanding inaugural event (which, by the way, won a Ruby Award as the people’s choice at the Arts SA Awards) organisers of this year’s event on March 30-31 have put together another amazing array of talent with many acts coming straight from the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Every act is a headline act like the iconic Adelaide tribute band Chunky Custard.

08unearthYep, that’s right, the Chunkies are bringing their mullets and spandex to Whyalla for uneARTh.

This legendary Adelaide high-camp cover band has been cruising around the fringes of society for nearly 30 years. They’re an iconic band that fits perfectly with the uneARTh vibe.

The Chunkies are outrageous, funny and bloody talented as they put on a show like you’ve never seen. Their performance just keeps evolving over a 20-year loop to make them as retro-relevant now as they were when they started back in the 90s.

From chunky to funky, the Gospo Collective will be putting on their Jackson v Jackson extravaganza. This an amazing sing-off between the hits of Michael and Janet Jackson performed with the backing of a heavenly choir.

08unearthFrom nice to naughty, it will be a big welcome for the outrageous Hans.

Reviews rave about the Berlin boy-wonder, pictured, as he leads a revolution in his all-singing, all tap-dancing, accordion-pumping extravaganza.

Hans’ show has been described as boozier than Oktoberfest, more drive than a Vokswagen with more sausage than a bratwurst convention.

The culture fest continues with the Kinara Moon Band, pictured below, coming down from the APY Lands to belt out some deadly tunes.

There’s the Blonde Bombshells of Jazz to get things swinging, the Germein Sisters who will blow you away with their wide palate of musical styles and, of course, a big line up of local acts.

The likes of Emily Rawlings, the Whyalla Players, the Namaste dancers, D’Faces, the Stuart High School Symphonies, Brie Ryan … the list just goes on and on.

Oh, and then of course, there’s a stack of workshops, the Rainbow Run, external events, internal food, catering and fun … we’ve run out of breath already!
