Kylie Auldist, described by The Music Magazine “Melbourne’s high priestess of soul”, is at centre stage of the funk, soul and disco scene in Australia. Already praised by the world’s soul and R&B community as an extraordinary talent, Kylie has shot to stratospheric prominence as the voice of UK/European smash hit of 2016 summer ‘This Girl’ by Kungs vs Cookin’ on 3 Burners.
Her sublime vocals are breaking official single charts across the world with the remix which went to number one on the charts in France, Germany, Belgium, Hungary, Latvia and Scotland and number two on the UK singles chart.
You are definitely invited to the party but you had better be able to keep up!

Tumi the Be
A Motswana poet and rapper, Tumi the Be has long been captivated by the sound of syncopated speech over a fat beat. He wrestles a pen to an empty page and turns churning thoughts into rhyming verse.
Tumi’s style is a vibrant blend of old school rap and spoken word poetry. Tumi shares abstract ideas, philosophical musings and real life experiences adding to his diverse appeal.
Since moving to Melbourne in April 2014 his passion has taken him from hip hop open mic nights, to poetry slams, and park ciphers where he has schooled and been schooled by Burn City’s finest.
Tumi has been billed as one of Melbourne finest Freestylers (joining the ranks of Hugo The Poet and Morganics) “(The Topic was Yoda.) Tumi; never disappoints.

We are stoked to have Tam on board for the Jam. You can usually find her fronting hard rock outfit Which Old Witch at the Old Bar and other venues around Melbourne’s north. Tam is flying solo at our little festival and will bring a lighter side to her hard rock reputation with some classic tracks to sway your soul.
“Matt's playing, singing and songwriting have always resonated strongly with me. Matt's lyrics are characterised by depth, compassion and a unique...but always accessible...understanding of the human condition. The hallmark of a bold and mature songwriter”.
Brian Nankervis (Rockwiz, ABC radio, RRR)

Rod Begbie takes his music both a little too seriously, and not very seriously at all...so he's happiest when his songs make you laugh and cry at the very same time.
He's played in two-piece outfits, fronted bands, and sung in a choir thrown together for his neighbour's mum's 70th, but for The Clan Jam he will be returning to his roots and doing his solo singer-songwriter thang.
Check out some of his smooth skills on Soundcloud here.
Sharyn Jury and the Mellow Men
Five blokes (and one non-bloke) who have fun bringing together a fusion of blues, funk, rock and a dash of reggae in their mix of originals and covers.
Smooth harmonies, funky guitar licks and a beat you can boogie to!
And they are locals! We love that.
