For Wollongong locals Zach and Billy, HOCKEY DAD first started as something to do when there were no waves. But the universe had other plans for their infectious, sun-soaked rock anthems. Their second studio album Blend Inn (2018) made history when it hit #6 on the ARIA charts, making them the first band from the Illawarra region to hit the Top 10 in 23 years. International headline tours soon followed, with the band selling out iconic rooms in London, New York, Amsterdam and more. With the arrival of their third album Brain Candy (#2 on the ARIA Charts), it was undeniable: the two kids from Wingdan are doing quite alright. Catch their rollicking live set at Laneway 2023!
