The 40 Under 40 Closing Party!
It's one heck of a final party, and you're invited.
Saturday 5th of March 2022
In the same vein as prior years opening events, the 40 Under 40 Closing Party will shake the main street of Cooroy, bringing the atmosphere of a mini arts festival to the hinterland town. Local live music performances will be pumping all night, with local food vans and beer supplied
by Land and Sea to keep audiences well lubricated and dancing all night (well at least till 9.30pm). Art prizes are awarded to the most promising young artists and the pieces are available for purchase. So come support the incredible young artists and potentially grow your own art collection!

A 4 piece Brisbane Alternative-Fusion band looking to make their mark on 2022
With one foot placed firmly in the tradition of classic 60-70’s pop songwriting, and the other landing in much more modern and experimental territory, BARK. have found themselves distilling a unique blend of the old and the new. With a live set that splits its efforts between frenetic instrumental jams and heartfelt songs of love and loss, BARK. are a new local act that is not to be missed!
Who’s Aunty Liss? Ask your parents, chances are she drummed them into a dance
crazed trance 30 years ago in a Newtown pub. Now she’s doing it all again (second
generation styles) teaming up with her nephew and his friends in Meeanjin based 'desperate rock’ outfit Girl and Girl.
Declan Byrnes of triple J has likened the band’s sound to that of Parquet Courts and Car Seat Headrest. 2021 saw the family band cement their position as a staple of the Gold Coast and Meeanjin music scenes, supporting acts like These New South Wales and, The Moving Stills, being named the music.com’s ‘top 25 rising local acts - 2021’, as well as charting at 76 in 4ZZZ’s hottest 100.
Orlando furious is the solo music-name of Ben Snaith since 2013. The moniker is drawn from Orlando furioso the 16th Century Italian Epic poem of the same name by Ludovico Ariosto. Inspiration also comes from the Virginia Woolf novel "Orlando," about a time-shifting, gender-fluid, isolated wanderer.
Ben positions Orlando furious as a shapeshifter taking precedent from the wide-reaching styles of artists like Bjork, Beck, Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell and Jonathon Richman. A wildcard playing tricks yet stumbling over emotions, sincerely trying for human connection while meeting all the Cops in his Head.
