North Queensland’s biggest annual sporting event just got bigger, with Supercars excited to announce that three of the biggest music acts in Australia, Tones And I, G Flip and Cyril, will perform at July’s NTI Townsville 500.

The trio of acts will all perform on the evening of Saturday 6 July, at the NTI Townsville 500 within the circuit precinct.

It’s a major coup for the event to have the three headline acts performing on the same stage on the night.

Since exploding onto the global scene in 2019 as a busker from the Mornington Peninsula, Australia, Tones And I has smashed records, garnered multiple awards, sold out tours, surpassed 10 billion streams and reached multi-platinum heights around the world.

Her 2019 EP, The Kids Are Coming, crashed the Top 30 of the Billboard 200 and is certified Gold.

Meanwhile, Tones And I’s full-length debut, Welcome To The Madhouse, toppled the Australian Albums Chart at #1 in 2021. Among five career ARIA Awards, 'Cloudy Day' closed out 2022 as ARIA’s Song of the Year.

G Flip is another homegrown artist who in recent years has won global awards, including the 2023 ARIA for Best Australian Live Act.

Their sophomore album, Drummer (released in August 2023) shot to #1 on the ARIA charts, was named Triple J’s best album of the year, and propelled G Flip to their largest sold-out Australian tour and first US headline tour.
