Meadow (previously By The Meadow) returns for its seventh year in March 2020. Besides chopping its name into a punchy one-worder, Meadow hasn’t changed in vibe one bit, promising yet another three-day, two-night, once-in-a-year-time party.

Over the weekend of Friday 27 – Sunday 29 March, the iconic Bambra Bowl will come alive with a musical feast to satisfy all taste buds. With the full line-up set to be announced early in the New Year, it is with great pleasure that festival organisers, The Locals, can now reveal the first three acts that will grace the Meadow stage – enter Frankie Cosmos, Elizabeth, and Surprise Chef.

Close your eyes and fall into the dizzying DIY universe of Frankie Cosmos. Three years since the New York City four-piece last toured Australia, Meadow is pleased to welcome the whirling wit of Greta Kline and co. to their humble home among the gumtrees. Taking to the stage on Festival Saturday, Frankie Cosmos will deliver a live performance akin to a publicly broadcast day-dream; drawing from acclaimed 2019 record, Close It Quitely, expect a flurry of both calm and chaotic two-minute bedroom pop songs – an aural degustation if ever there was one.

Following the release of Totally Mild’s two picture perfect albums Down Time and Her, front-woman Elizabeth Mitchell is no stranger to the Meadow stage, having charmed festivalgoers in Bambra twice before. Returning to The Otways once again, this time as her namesake solo project Elizabeth; Mitchell and her 7-piece all-female power-house band will bless the hills with richly produced, cinematic pop.

Moody and groovy, the debut record from Melbourne’s soul journeymen Surprise Chef, sold out the first pressing worldwide in less than a week. Now they bring the genre-pushing sound of All News Is Good News and more to The Bambra Bowl for a loose Friday night set that’ll launch the Festival well and truly into the jazz-o-sphere.

Gather your mates and stock up the Esky for a weekend of music, camping, BYO and good times.
