The stage is literally set and the final act has been announced for the inaugural and highly anticipated Deniliquin Blues & Roots event.
Sydney-based Indie group Lime Cordiale (pictured, above) has been added to the line-up for the two-day Easter festival, while organisers released the stage schedule last week.
The festival, which is being held Easter Saturday and Sunday and jointly organised by the Deniliquin Ute Muster office, boasts international megastars Chris Isaak, Steve Miller Band, Santana and Jason Mraz as its headline acts.
Ute Muster general manager John Harvie said preparations were going along smoothly.
He also encouraged those debating on whether to buy a ticket to the concert to ‘‘get in now’’.
‘‘We’re looking over our ticket selling strategies .
Lime Cordiale, a ‘‘five-piece quartet’’, hail from Sydney’s northern beaches.
The band is led by brothers Oli and Louis Leimbach.
‘‘We’re stoked to be on the line-up,’’ Oli said.
‘‘We didn’t take much time considering whether to play at this festival.
‘‘Jason Mraz is someone that really inspired us in our early years.’’
Lime Cordiale have played at a number of Aussie music festivals, including Homebake and Peats Ridge.
The band will open the festivities on Sunday morning on Stage B.
