Lakeside Festival 2022 will feature one of the most recognisable voices in the country, as Karise Eden joins the line-up in 2022

Shooting to fame at the age of 19 with a viral audition video that now has over 45 million views on YouTube, Karise Eden went on to release her debut album which broke sales records and made chart history.

Karise started playing guitar at thirteen years of age, and also picked up the double bass at the same time. Her debut album My Journey shot straight to #1 on the national ARIA Chart, was certified double platinum and went on to become the biggest selling album by an Australian artist in 2012. In New Zealand the album debuted at #3 and was certified gold.

Karise made ARIA Chart history in the same year when she took out the top three spots on the singles chart with #1 ‘Stay With Me Baby’, #2 ‘Hallelujah’ and #3 ‘I Was Your Girl’, with single ‘You Won’t Let Me’ at #5. Karise was the first artist to achieve this in Australia since The Beatles held the Top 6 to themselves back in 1964.

In 2014 Karise’s second album Things I’ve Done was released and featured lead singles ‘Dynamite’ and ‘Loneliness’. The album debuted at #5 on the ARIA Chart, achieved gold sales status and was followed up by sold out shows around the country.

Powerful, engrossing, and bold, Karise continues to play live around Australia, performing regularly at coveted venues and main stages at festivals and outdoor events.

Karise Eden has spent the last few years working through the process of gaining freedom and independence as an artist. With her new music she can communicate directly with her fans and do things her way, in a manner which is meaningful and significant. Welcome, “My Old Friend”.
