This will involve mentoring the young musicians and performing with them at the event.

Headlining act The Lithgow All-Stars are a large handpicked group featuring talented members of some of Australia’s best rock acts of the 60s, 70s and 80s: Colin Burgess (AC/DC, The Masters Apprentices), Denny Burgess (The Masters Apprentices), and Charlie McMahon (Midnight Oil, Gondwanaland). McMahon and the Burgess brothers are joined by Steve Hall, of new wave shock rockers Jimmy & The Boys, and esteemed saxophonist Dr. Jason Thornton, hired gun for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Cher, and Cat Stevens.

The Lithgow All-Stars and their collaborators will be performing new renditions of songs from their prime respective acts: AC/DCMidnight Oil, and The Masters Apprentices.

Learning about stagecraft, songwriting, and performance skills in the process, many participants are overjoyed to be working with Aussie rock royalty. This maintains a tradition of mentorships from event co-organisers Retro Rehash, who have previously put local musicians on stages with the likes of Angry Anderson from Rose Tattoo, Steve Kilbey from The Church, and Michael Smith from The Atlantics. The event also provides a setting for the formation of new artistic connections, between the local government areas of Lithgow and the Blue Mountains.

Emerging Blue Mountains rock band Acid Amora will also perform on the night, in-between sets from co-organiser Sam Bucca, and Indigenous singer-songwriterYanhadarrambal/Jade Flynn. International comedian Marty Bright will host as MC.
