Here's To Now 2016

Coriole parties are legendary and there is no doubt in our minds that this will be a really nice time. Set in the heart of one of the most beautiful regions in Australia, Here’s To Now is a celebration of all that is good. It’s the ducks nuts of live music, fine booze and tasty treats in the beautiful gardens of Coriole.

Now in its third year, the festival's line-up crosses the worlds of blues, folk, indie, soul and everything in between. Twenty-sixteen will see the event extended by a few extra hours of great live music, and once again tickets are strictly limited.

Sweet Jean is Sime Nugent and Alice Keath. Their music ranges from stark and gothic to hazy and melodic. Since forming in late 2010, Sweet Jean has built a reputation for evocative songwriting, razor-sharp harmonies and stirring live performances.

At the 2015 SA Music Awards SKIES won Best New Artist following the recent release of their single ‘Call For My Heart’

DJ Set

Last time Surahn graced the stage at Coriole, his legendary disco collection turned the courtyard into a frenzied swarm of dancing bodies. We welcome one of our favourite party starters back to close out the festival this year at Coriole.



This year between acts on the main stage we’ll be keeping the party kicking on throughout the day in the Coriole courtyard with dj’s playing at the CRACKLE & POP record store. 

With sets from:


Young Muscle is an Adelaide based artist collective aimed at getting South Australian talent out to a broader audience and have held parties and played records in warehouses, clubs, parks, atriums, alleyways, vineyards and even on the banks of the mighty Torrens River itself. Young Muscle DJs love vinyl, and can be regularly found playing records at Botanic Bar or Rocket Bar & Rooftop where they host a monthly Saturday night. Their preferred flavours are disco, funk and house, but have never been afraid of a challenging combination of all of the above. The Young Muscle legends will be keeping the party ticking form twilight.


Nantale Kivubiro & Betty Milner are two gals who love disco, afro, latin and everything in between. Coming to you direct from the most era defining late night sessions at Sugar and packing crate loads of gold dug from distant dance floors, Nan & Betty will be spinning all afternoon to keep your toes tapping into the evening.



Diamond Slice 

We're bringing back "Diamond Slice" Happy's pizza shop. Dreamed up a few summers ago whilst sitting around the fire at Russell's, this is arguably the most overstaffed and chaotic pizza shop on the planet. With a healthy dose of Coriole’s olives and toppings from the garden, a cranking wood oven and a megaphone, it's the best spot to sneak a slice south of Sicily.

- Hawaiian Rainbow vino cotto ham, charred pineapple, calypso gremolata $15

At HTN16 the boys will bring you a summer noodle bowl that will have Gengis Kahn wishing he was Vietnamese. Think pickled mushrooms, sambal, fragrant laksa mint, finger limes and galangal. Fist load sof  OOMPH, love thy noodle, slurp thy noodle, EwwwMUMMY!

 Mischief Brew
