7 - 8pm: Main Act – 1927 

Iconic, multi-ARIA award-winning Australian rock band 1927 will be in town for one night only at Sounds in the Park, before embarking on their nation-wide THE BEST THINGS TOUR.

Known for enduring hits such as 'That's When I Think of You', 'Compulsory Hero', 'To Love Me', 'Scars', 'Don't Forget Me', and of course, 'If I Could', the band made an instant mark on the Australian music scene with the release of their debut album ‘…iSH’ in 1988.  

Three months after the release, 1927 was catapulted to meteoric fame, with ‘…iSH’ going on become the highest selling debut album release by an Australian artist.  The album contained a staggering six charted singles, and for 46 weeks, ‘…iSH’ remained in the TOP 50 of the Australian Music Charts.

More than three decades later, the Australian rock legends continue to sell out shows nationwide and their music remains a staple favourite on Australia's popular mainstream radio stations. 

Visit 1927's Instagram, YouTube and Spotify to stay up-to-date with the band and listen to their latest music.
