Melbourne music institution Cherry Bar is bringing its CherryRock festival to Sydney for the first time, with a one-off headline appearance from US rockers Meat Puppets.

Traditionally held in Melbourne’s AC/DC Lane, CherryRock014’s Sydney edition will take over the indoor and outdoor stages at the Factory Theatre. Headliners Meat Puppets came together in 1980, and shot to fame when Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain invited them to join them for the legendary MTV Unplugged appearance in 1993.

The full first lineup announcement for CherryRock014 is:

Meat Puppets


Gay Paris


Drunk Mums

Chris Russell’s Chicken Walk

King of the North

Bitter Sweet Kicks


The Harlots

Don Fernando and more

CherryRock hits the Factory Theatre on Saturday May 31, presented by the BRAG. Tickets are on sale now.
