Jason Isbell Heads New Barossa Festival


Silver Raven Festival, a new boutique Americana-styled festiva set for Saturday April 2, 2016, has announced its lineup headlined by three acts from the USA: Jason Isbell (whose latest album was named Rolling Stone’s #7 album of 2015) , along with Eilen Jewell and Endless Boogie.

Set in The Barossa Valley’s Turkey Flat Vineyards, Silver Raven Festival will also be the farewell to Adelaide darlings The Audreys who will be performing their final show together.

Dan Crannitch, music programmer of Silver Raven said: “This lineup is all about quality over quantity: From arguably one of the finest songwriters of our generation, Jason Isbell, to the absolutely stunning songbird Eilen Jewell playing alongside some of Adelaide – and the world’s – great musicians… and what a special way to farewell one of Adelaide’s most beloved bands, The Audreys.”

The lineup of international and local talent will be completed by Bad//Dreems, Koral & The Goodbye Horses, honky-tonk duo Hana & Jessie-Lee (The Sloe Ruin) and young blues and soul prodigy Ollie English.

Food on the day will be from the mobile kitchen of the catering/art installation team behind The Neon Lobster and Here’s to Now festival, The Happy Motel – while Turkey Flat will present their award-winning wines.

“Adelaide innately knows quality in their food, wine, music and environments. We’re lucky enough to have some of the world’s best in all those areas. We wanted to create an event where our community can enjoy all this in one perfect day. That will be Silver Raven Festival at Turkey Flat Vineyards.” said Silver Raven director and member of the Turkey Flat family Alex Schulz.

Silver Raven Festival tickets are available from Oztix and start at $79, with return transfers from Adelaide city tickets at $115.
