Breaking Aussie bands headed for London

The biggest showcase of Australian bands in the UK is returning to London's Cargo Bar next month.

Deep Sea Arcade, Cub Scouts, Neighbourhood Youth, Caitlin Park and DUNE are among the acts set to perform at the all-day Aussie BBQ on May 21.

The concert will also feature performances by Echo and The Empress, Glass Towers, Jackie Onassis, Made In Japan, Mikelangelo & the Black Sea Gentlemen, Phebe Starr and The Upskirts.

"These artists have travelled across the globe leaving behind beautiful beaches, amazing weather and a robust and enviable economy to come and play in the UK," a statement from organisers Sounds Australia said.

"So you know they are going to be better than good. This is the show where you'll discover the next Nick Cave or The Temper Trap or Gotye."

Inspired by the showcase at the South By Southwest music conference in Texas, the Aussie BBQ will be celebrating its fifth year in London.
