Lucas Laufen + Hayfitz
19th March 2024
Gentle Folk // soft songs. These two met in Berlin in 2023 and have been pioneering the quiet side of the European folk scene ever since. Co-headlining tours in Germany, Austria and The Netherlands, next stop is Australia.


Lucas Laufen makes quiet music. Originally from Port Lincoln, South Australia, he moved to Berlin in 2016 to pursue songs in a different way. A subsequent signing to Embassy of Music (Björk, Passenger, Asgéir) and multiple headline tours in Europe have kept him there. His latest record "Weathering" was produced by grammy award winner "Antonio Pulli", crossing indie folk into neoclassical borders. Somber falsetto melodies married to shimmering guitars within elemental orchestrations that yearn and plunge, endow us to stop, breathe and escape the daily noise.

A self-proclaimed purveyor of 'gentle folk' Hayfitz crafts delicate songs about the most delicate of subjects. With his recently released sophomore album, Everything Else, the Berlin based multi-instrumentalist details his complex journey of coming into his new found queer identity and all the struggles that came along with it. Now based in Europe he will be touring all across Denmark, Sweden, Germany, and Australia in 2024.
Dad and the Frog is a small outdoor venue. If wet weather occurs the performance will be rescheduled for the following day Wednesday 20th March 2024. If required we will announce a wet weather reschedule at 8pm on Monday 18th March 2024.
