Caravana Sun Guerrilla Club tour poster

2019 started with an undeniable bang for Caravãna Sun, performing a huge New Year’s slot at Woodford Folk Festival then a visit to Kiwi fans including a sold-out performance.

2018 wasn’t without it’s own thrilling adventures for the band, which included separate national tour supports with renowned UK acts Madness and UB40 and a 35 show bender throughout Europe.

Australia’s favourite rebellious surf-rockers have just announced new dates including a sold out show at Fremantle’s infamous Mojo’s, and the Nannup Music Festival.  

Caravãna Sun are prepping for a killer year with a new album release and national tour, and another epic summer European tour which includes performing at award-winning UK music festival Bestival, then two head-lining festival performances at Rock Oyster Festival (UK) and the Netherland’s own MaDnes Festival.

PRAISE FOR CARAVÃNA SUN

PRAISE FOR CARAVÃNA SUN

 

“...Just the right tempo and temperature on this one from CARAVÃNA SUN, it’s got that late arvo feel to it that still has some warmth but nothing too sizzling.”

Triple J, Declan Byrne (‘Afterlife’, 2020)

 

“It’s March 2020. We’re all stuck inside. And though that’ll hamper this hard-gigging band from getting out amongst their fans, I gotta say that they’ve dropped this song at the right time. Takes you away to somewhere expansive and sun-caressed.”

Triple J Unearthed, Dave Ruby Howe (‘Charlie’, 2020)

 

“Caravana sun are at their buoyant best on this new jam. it's vibrant and full of hooks and charm and i'm going in again for sure” 4.5 / 5 Triple J Unearthed, Declan Byrne (‘Stella’, 2021)
