The Plot has a knack for picking acts for its lineup just as they’re about to get huge, and the 2017 festival is no exception, with a bunch of the best emerging talent in the country that will no doubt be hitting new heights in 2018 – making it the perfect place to catch our best new acts.

Last year’s festival gave us a bunch of examples, and we’ve picked out ten of the bands who played previous editions of The Plot and went on to have a massive year, from Tash Sultana and Amy Shark, to some names you’ll see coming back for more this year.

It all goes down again on Saturday November 18 at Parramatta Park, so check out the full lineup below, along with our list of bands who graduated from The Plot at the top of their class.
