Lime Cordiale’s ‘The Squeeze’ music festival to bring headline acts to Mandurah’s Hall Park 

Lime Cordiale’s annual music festival ‘The Squeeze’ was announced on Monday, and the supersized gig is set to rock Mandurah. 

Chugg Music and current ARIA Award winners for Best Live Act Lime Cordiale have planned a stellar lineup of talent, including Thelma Plum, Client Liaison, The VANNS and many more for their Australia-wide tour next year.

The 12 stops include a show in Mandurah’s Hall Park and towns in SA, VIC, NSW and QLD, including several ‘A Day on The Green events’. 

The Squeeze festival was brought to life by Lime Cordiale’s passion for sharing the spotlight with their friends, which sparked the idea of a day-long festival programmed by the band and the help of their managers Michael Chugg and Andrew Stone. 

“After the industry has been hit so hard it’s a great feeling to know that we’re pulling this off,” Lime Cordiale said. 

“We share a great vision with Chugg Music to be able to achieve something more than just making records. This project is for the music industry and the hungry music lovers. 

“We want this to make a huge impact for the industry and a small impact on the environment. That’s why we have partnered with FEAT. Live on the festival to contribute a Solar Slice of $1.00 from each ticket sold which will go towards helping reduce carbon emissions and waste generated by live events with the aim of maximising positive environmental outcomes.”

Mandurah Mayor Rhys Williams said the annual travelling music festival was a welcome addition to the City’s events program for 2022.

“Mandurah is the only location in WA chosen to host this event and we look forward to welcoming locals, visitors, performers and crew here to enjoy quality live music against the beautiful backdrop of the Peel-Harvey Estuary,” the mayor said. 

“We’re really pleased to be working with the organisers to deliver The Squeeze festival here in Mandurah as part of our commitment to bringing a diverse range of arts and culture events to our City.”

Chugg Music and Lime Cordial manager Michael Chugg said from the moment they did the first Squeeze Festival in 2018, they had a dream to take on outdoor touring around Australia. 

“Whilst COVID hit us for six in 2020 and 2021, we are very excited to be playing regional one day events in April and May 2022,” Mr Chugg said. 

“It’s a great line up and will be a great day”.

The Squeeze 2022 features artists at the top of the pile artistically and the next super talented generation of artists who are ready to break through, including Melbourne’s Teenage Dads and merci, mercy from Sydney. 

Tickets for the Triple J supported event go on sale on Friday with a pre-sale on Wednesday.
