In the Pines just got bigger with the final lineup announcement for 2017’s massive edition. RTRFM is celebrating its 40th birthday this year, and the one-day musical treat has played host to the likes of Tame Impala, Bucket, Pond, Methyl Ethel and Tired Lion in the past. With 10 hours of local music against a stunning background, In The Pines is a perfect place to picnic with friends and get amongst it! Delicious food and drink options will also be available for those that want to dance freely.


Joining the lineup is THE PICTURE GARDENS, an Indigenous indie rock band who have connections with the northern part of the Goldfields and the Murchison. The band recently recorded their highly infectious single ‘Hurt, Heal, Live’ as part of WAM’s Sounds Of The Goldfields project where they worked together with renowned Perth producer Matt Gio, making this the first time a Sounds Of artist has joined the bill.

Last appearing at In the Pines in 2012, beloved sextet APRICOT RAIL are once again bringing their charming instrumentals back to Somerville. After a long, quiet few years, Apricot Rail burst back onto the scene a couple of months ago with the single Scarecrow. This, along with their charming back catalogue will undoubtedly soar all the way to the top of the pines.

THE LOVE JUNKIES are well and truly cemented as a Perth institution. They’re now gaining international repute, with their high energy live shows and high quality songwriting – Last year they toured Stateside, playing at renowned festival SXSW. Playing Pines for the first time as a 4 piece, The Love Junkies never fail to draw, and completely own a crowd.

After winning last year’s Big Splash Competition, picking up two WAM awards, plus a slew of huge support gigs, Fremantle hip-hop juggernaut POW NEGRO are continuing their impressive year with a set on the Pines stage. Their fusion of slick guitars, smooth sax and fluid rhymes makes for a dynamic, totally un-missable show.

The one of the many projects from prolific Perth muso Lyndon Blue, SOLAR BARGE BIG BAND will feature plenty of special guests for this very special occasion. They’re set to transform the Somerville Auditorium into a majestic, mythical, sonically and visually engaging experience for In The Pines.
