The one-day, one-stage festival will be making 15 stops across North America this August and September with a unique line-up set for each city. The pre-sale for the fest begins Tuesday (March 29) at 10 am local time.

The stacked list of artists joining Barnett’s festival includes Bartees Strange, Snail Mail, Wet Leg, Lucy Dacus, Lid Pimienta, Japanese Breakfast, and Faye Webster. See the full list of dates and artists below.

“When I was a kid I would make mix-tapes and dream up my own festivals, I’d even design the t-shirts and pair up musicians for iconic collaborations,” Barnett said. “I’d listen to the mix-tape and pretend it was the live recording of a concert, all my favourite artists on stage together.”

Barnett added: “10 years ago I wrote this lyric: “I got lost somewhere between here and there, I’m not sure what the town was called”. Whether that was meant to be interpreted as a geographical, emotional or philosophical journey, I thought it was the perfect title for my roaming festival.

“This concept was something that remained floating in the back of my mind when I started playing music. Here And There feels like a natural culmination of energy after years of touring, and ten years of working on my label Milk! Records. It’s something I’ve been forever daydreaming about, and part of an always evolving project to share spaces and build new platforms for art and artists that I believe in.”

Last year the Australian singer-songwriter released her third album, ‘Things Take Time, Take Time’. In a four-star review, NME said the record “is sparer than Barnett’s previous records, pairing jangly, lackadaisical indie-rock with scatterings of drum machine; programmed in collaboration with Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa. Though it lacks the more immediate bite of Barnett’s previous work, its softness gives it a more tender focus.”
