Poppy Getting Ready to Shine for the Finals

Local Melbourne band Poppy are looking forward to blasting their tunes and getting the votes they need to move on to the national finals in Sydney



Poppy says they’re getting their live show honed and looking to putting on a live set that will blow their crowd away at The Hi-Fi in Melbourne on December 8th. They’re looking forward to blasting their tunes through the incredible sound system at The Hi-Fi and winning the votes they need to get to the national finals. Before the show, they take some time to let us in on what the journey’s been like so far for the band and what’s in store for their audience on the 8th.

SO, DO YOU THINK YOU'RE READY FOR THE BIG NIGHT?

Yes, we’re ready and rearing to go! Can’t wait to get on that stage and bring POPPY to The Hi-Fi!

WHAT’S THE BAND DOING TO GET READY FOR THE FINALS? REHEARSING MUCH?

Yes, we are a few rehearsals in... with more to come!

WHAT, IF ANY, CHANGES HAVE YOU MADE TO YOUR STAGE SET-UP OR YOUR LIVE PERFORMANCE WITH THE FINALS IN MIND?

We just wanted to create an energetic and sharp set.... it’s a shorter time so we want to make the most of it and blow the crowd away.

WHAT ARE YOUR EXPECTATIONS FOR THE BIG NIGHT?

Playing in such an amazing venue, I expect, will be our favourite thing for the night!

WHAT EFFECT DO YOU THINK WINNING WOULD HAVE ON THE BAND?

Winning would be such a boost for us... bringing even more confidence to know we’re doing the right things.

CAN YOU TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE IN THE FESTIVAL SO FAR? ANY FUNNY ANECDOTES FROM YOUR PREVIOUS SHOWS OR REHEARSALS LEADING UP TO THE FINALS?
It’s been fun, challenging and exciting, especially getting to the finals.

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST ABOUT PLAYING THE HI-FI IN MELBOURNE?

Being on that stage, and having POPPY’s tunes played through the sound system!

WHAT IS GOING TO SET YOU APART FROM THE OTHER BANDS AND SECURE A WIN FOR YOUR BAND?

We bring a different kind of energy and sound that I think gives the audience something new.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO BANDS THAT ARE CONSIDERING SIGNING UP FOR THE FESTIVAL NEXT YEAR?

I would say do it... great venues plus great experience!

IF YOU HAVE THE DESIRE TO SHOUT OUT TO ANY OF THE BANDS OR SAY ANY THANKS, DO SO HERE:

Thanks to all who come and support POPPY at every gig... See you at The Hi-Fi!!
