Bacardi Nh7 Weekender & #AustraliaFest in association with Australia in India and Fandom present West Thebarton & sleepmakeswaves. Sydney instrumental post-rock/prog quartet sleepmakeswaves have had an amazing run since the release of their debut album "...and so we destroyed everything." Over the past six years of touring, their busy schedule has included 12 Australian tours, 4 European tours, touring North America, Asia and New Zealand twice, tours with scene giants Karnivool, Underoath, Cog, Devin Townsend, 65daysofstatic and Opeth - and an unprecedented two nominations for an ARIA Award (Australia's equivalent of the Grammy's). West Thebarton are a seven-headed rock hydra from Adelaide, South Australia, yet another example of the resurgence of artists from the Southern Hemisphere. They are an amalgam of Adelaide based, national touring bands – a super group headed by The Rev, the gravel voiced soul brother who, somehow, writes super catchy choruses about suicide, unrequited love and pure loathing.
