After headlining the Uprising Festival in Fiji late last year as well as headlining some huge festivals in India and Nepal in October and September 2017, Jay Hoad has just finished up a run of shows at Tamworth Music Festival NSW to kick off his 2018 Australian Tour, and is now doing a run of sell out shows at the Adelaide Fringe Festival. He will be returning to NSW for one weekend in Apr 2018 and this will be the last chance to see him in AUS for 2018 as he is flat out touring various other countries for the rest of the year.
Hoad had a total of 210 shows across 7 countries on the tour last year, and after this show he will be staying in SA for performances at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, then back OS for festivals in Bali, Thailand, India and Fiji later in the year. “I’m so excited to be back in Australia, and especially excited to be back in this region, I absolutely love the vibe of this area. And right now I’m feeling so excited and inspired after recently spending time performing and studying Eastern music with some of India and Nepal’s most well known artists”
