Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year is In The Pines, the fabled local music festival run by beloved Boorloo/Perth community radio station RTRFM that will once again take place in the gorgeous, pine-filled Somerville Auditorium at UWA on Sunday, April 30, 2023.

The line-up will see a deep, diverse line-up of W.A. talent, from both emerging to longtime faves play across two stages, with the whole thing being broadcast live on the radio and online. Some Pilerats faves from the line-up including Flewnt, Grievous Bodily Calm, Kill Devil Hills, Rabbit Island and Smol Fish, but the whole cast is amazing - see below for the full line-up.

In addition to the delight of dance music lovers, this year’s edition of Pines will also see 10 local DJs take over UWA’s Riley Oval, with Ben Taaffe x Ben Em, Charlie Bucket, Ewan Jansen, Norah Zion and Rok Riley all among the selectors poised to bring the party.

Also on the line-up are the extremely hard working, country touring Noah Dillon (who we caught up with last year about his debut album Kill The Dove here) and longtime local faves and revered live band The Love Junkies (who reformed in mid-2022 and have played a few shows since).

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of In The Pines, we asked Noah Dillon & The Love Junkies main man Mitch Mcdonald to catch up for a chat over text ahead of the festival, and the results were equal parts hilarious, sweet and informative. Have a read and see below for all Pines info!
