Un-verified artwork of a festival called SoulFest appeared on soul singer Anthony Hamilton's Facebook yesterday, before being swiftly removed. According to the artwork – which theMusic.com.au understands may be out of date – Maxwell was also listed as a headliner with Angie Stone, Musiq Soulchild and Leela James.
While the festival has no online presence yet a number of questions have been raised by fans excited at the prospect of the tour, which according to the un-verified artwork has dates in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Ticketek appears to verify the existence of the festival, or at least the planning stages of it, with the ticketing company accepting expressions of interest via a waitlist for an event called 'SoulFest' on its website.
It is also hosting waitlists for Maxwell, D'Angelo, Common and Aloe Blacc.
Official confirmation of the festival will likely emerge in coming weeks.
Veterans lead this week's releases with new albums from Tim Rogers & The Bamboos (Album Of The Week) and Daniel Johns plus albums from Ella Thompson, The Vaccines and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
