THE LOST LANDS - 2019 LINEUP ANNOUNCEMENT

THE LOST LANDS, Werribee Park & Mansion

SUN 3 NOV

The wait is over! The Lost Lands returns to the lush surrounds of Werribee Park & Mansion on 1-3 November for three days of breathtaking performances. The music lineup features English indie legends Gomez, hip-hop star Baker Boy, soul sisters Vika & Linda Bull, electro rock icons Regurgitator, songwriter & poet Sampa The Great, indie rock band Holy Holy, Japan’s pop punk outfit Shonen Knife, Rolling Blackouts CF, Melbourne Ska Orchestra and more! We are thrilled to announce Gomez will perform their critically acclaimed album Liquid Skin in its entirety!

The Arts and Wonder program is brimming with surprising and wonderful performances. In the Big Top, Circus Oz will perform their acclaimed show Neon, a celebration of the gloriously gaudy and glitzy 80's. Regurgitator's Pogogo Show will bring the fun-time tunes. We've lined up the hilariously inventive Adam Page, master jugglers Jugg Life, the cheeky brilliance of Katie Wright Dynamite, a bunch of hilarious shows in La Petite Grande and heaps of other fun surprises.

The Lost Lands is the ultimate festival for big and little folk to share their love of music and art. Escape the ordinary into a natural wonderland and discover a magical world full of creativity and delight!

The Lost Lands is the brainchild of Simon and Mella, a husband and wife duo, who collectively founded and ran The Falls Music & Arts Festival for 20 years. After their second child six years ago, they moved on to other adventures. Inspired by long weekend campouts with their family and friends, they gave birth to a new festival - The Lost Lands! A magical experience, where families can dance, unleash their creativity and enjoy breathtaking performances together. They searched long and hard for the right location and found the perfect fit in Werribee Mansion, with its castle-like buildings, giant trees and lush gardens. Naturally evoking a sense of wonder and magic, it's the ideal place for people to relax and enjoy the festival nestled amongst a beautiful landscape.

POGOGO at The Tivoli

BRISBANE FESTIVAL, THE TIVOLI

SAT 14 SEPT - 11am

SUN 15 SEPT - 11am and 3.00pm

So we finally make the debut journey to Brisbane… not once, not twice… or thrice the fun!

Renowned Brisbane mash-up rock/electro/punk/poppin’ funtime outfit Regurgitator have cooked up a sugar-soaked record written especially for kids and are bringing it live to The Tivoli!

This new project sees long-time Regurgitator trio Ben Ely, Quan Yeomans and Pete Kostic joined by the effervescent Koko direct from Planet Rainbow. Their adventurous debut album, playfully-titled The Really Really Really Really Boring Album, has already struck a chord with families around the country, having quickly climbed to Number 1 on the Children’s iTunes chart.

From the slinky hip-hop stylings of first single ‘The Box’ and the elastic hop-scotch energy of ‘Pogogo Show Theme’; to the punk rock mania of ‘Pillow Fight’ and tropicalia fun of ‘Corumbo’, it’s about as silly and cheeky as a record can get – and is sure to bring a smile to long-term fans and the tiny folk in their lives.

REGURGITATOR’S POGOGO SHOW

THE REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY BORING ALBUM

Debut kids album out now!

2019’s breakout kids music sensations Regurgitator’s Pogogo Show have this week released their debut album, the typically adventurous (and playfully-titled) The Really Really Really Really Boring Album.

This new project sees longtime Regurgitator trio Ben Ely, Quan Yeomans and Pete Kostic joined by the effervescent Koko direct from Planet Rainbow. It’s already struck a chord with families around the country – with the album having quickly climbed to #1 on the Children’s iTunes chart.

The band’s wildly-varied jumping castle of sounds will come as no surprise to longtime fans. From the slinky hip-hop stylings of first single ‘The Box’ and the elastic hop-scotch energy of ‘Pogogo Show Theme’; to the punk rock mania of ‘Pillow Fight’ and tropicalia fun of ‘Corumbo’, young listeners will enjoy the spin of the musical wheel.

Of course, it’s all done with smiles all round, and with a certain feeling of destiny. As Ely observes: ‘‘Doing a kids album really feels true to our nature”.

And to add further colour and movement to the whole shebang, the band have today unveiled the madcap new video for ‘Pogogo Show Theme’, their irresistible mission statement tune. The release of the video also commemorates a significant Regurgitator milestone – arriving exactly 25 years after the band’s first ever gig in Brisbane.

The ABC announce a super new partnership...

REGURGITATOR'S POGOGO SHOW ‘THE REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY BORING ALBUM'

MUCH-LOVED BAND ANNOUNCE THEIR FIRST KIDS ALBUM, TO BE RELEASED MARCH 1ST

FIRST SINGLE, THE BOX, AVAILABLE NOW - LISTEN HERE ON YOUTUBE

Renowned Brisbane funtime outfit Regurgitator have today announced their latest project: a sugar-soaked record cooked up especially for kids!

Having performed at a number of children's events in recent years, the inimitable band have developed the kids music project Regurgitator's Pogogo Show - a typically manic playground that careers between punk, hip-hop, funk, electro-pop and everything in between.

The debut release - The Really Really Really Really Boring Album - is about as silly and cheeky as a record can get, whilst still offering a G-rating suitable for the tiny folk.

Featuring instant-ear wriggles such as first single ‘The Box', it's sure to bring a smile to the faces of long-term fans as well as the young ones in their life.

The band have never been more excited: “We've got our tiny amplifiers warmed up, our teeny drum kits tuned and plenty of soap for our filthy little mouths. We're ready to shout till our voices are wrecked, if you're ready to scream till your parents are deaf!”

Frontman Quan Yeomans explains the project's conception: "We had such a great time playing at Sydney's kids festival, 'Dress Up Attack!', in late 2013 that we came off stage so inspired there had to be a kid's album and show off the back of this. The first proper kids recording session was at Ben's house in 2014 or 2015. We took out the Teenage Engineering OP-1 a Bass guitar and a couple of mics and recorded a few tracks. We had such a laugh doing them we promised ourselves that we'd eventually get around to recording a full album. And finally, we got together with Peter and Koko in late 2018 and bashed it all out, warts, giggles and all!"
