Should I stay or should I go?

Hey, it’s not possible to be the perfect band for every occasion, and we’re cool with that. Let’s make sure we get this right.

If you are looking for these bands, you might be in the wrong place:


Rock Anthems

(AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Cold Chisel)


Top 40 Chameleons

[insert latest fad here]


Quasi-Folk Hipsters

(Mumford & Sons, Boy and Bear, Xavier Rudd)

Don’t get us wrong, you will find all these bands on our collective iPod, and we have performed requests by all sorts, from John Butler to Keith Urban to Kings of Leon.

We just want to make sure you get the perfect band to headline your Big Day Out.

The Escalators are inspired by vintage sounds & aesthetics, with a love of Swing, Jazz, Soul & Reggae.

So check out our song lists, and if you see a recipe for great entertainment, we’re going to get along just fine.
