TWENTY of Perth’s best musical acts will play at UWA’s Somerville Auditorium as part of RTRFM’s In The Pines music festival on April 30.

Making a comeback to the festival after 21 years, iconic rockers Jebediah will take to the stage bringing a plethora of material, including Leaving Home and Harpoon from their debut album Slightly Odway.

The band first played the festival in 1996, before their first album was released.
