The KFC Big Bash is hitting the perfect pitch this summer with a huge music line up set to perform across games throughout the season, offering fans more entertainment than ever before.
Clubs across the League have recruited a star-studded list of festival headliners and up and coming musicians to perform across various matches for this summer’s KFC BBL|12 tournament, which kicked off December 13 and runs through to February 4, 2023.
The list of artists set to perform across the tournament includes festival headliners such as Peking Duk, The Temper Trap, Ball Park Music, Sneaky Sound System and Northeast Party House as well as some of Australia’s fastest rising musicians in Sycco, Memphis LK, KLP, Kinder and Stace Cadet. Multiple Aria award winning artist Baker Boy will also give a special performance in Melbourne as part of the First Nations Round celebrations.
Joining a spectacle of live music talent are a raft of off-field experiences set to bring Australian stadiums alive, including a brand-new canopy lighting show at Optus Stadium and a Beach Bonanza party in Tasmania.
