THE inaugural Arts vs Science Riverside Festival goes down this Sunday with something for everyone.

Due to wet weather the action will happen at the revamped City Hall.

One such drawcard of the festival is the music stage, powered by the SCU Sunflower Solar Sound System, which will see a range of local artists perform throughout the afternoon.

Andy Crystal - 11am

For about 20 years Andy Crystal has been developing his song-writing craft with influences ranging from classical music to heavy metal. With an anti-establishment theme that runs thick throughout his work, a closer examination reveals a cheeky sense of humour, making for an entertaining show all round.

James Brook - 12 noon

The Arts vs Science Festival is super-excited to have folk punk troubadour James Brook on the Riverstage line-up.

James has toured throughout Europe and Australia as a solo artist and as a member of punk group Ecowar. James sings stories from the many people and places he has encountered from the streets of Europe, convict sea-shanties, historical tales of colonial history, backpacker life, smugglers, diving, love and the trials of modern life. A seasoned performer who sways a crowd with music of clear reality and earthy emotion.

Kodi&Cate - 1pm

Founded on a mutual namesake and an appreciation of Mondo Rock, these two Aquarian scoundrels present an eclectic set, casting new flavours on old favourites, with just enough quirk for even the coldest of hearts. Following their first public collaboration at Gigs Not Rigs at Bentley Hall, Kodi&Cody are here to delight.

Kate Stroud & special guests - 2pm

One of SCU's shining talents, Kate brings her Folky Kinda Sounds to the Riverstage. Honestly warm words are sung sweetly atop her handcrafted classical guitar with rich harmonies and melodies that stay embedded in the mind. Playfully whimsical in her approach to lyrical writing, you'll find experimentation of subtle sounds to the likes of musical boxes and washing machines on spin, carefully implanted among the tales painting in this auditory aesthetic journey.

The Snatchettes - 3pm

The Snatchettes are a punk rock band, hailing from the Northern Rivers. With a diverse line-up, they take their influence from a great range of styles and sounds; from short, thrashy punk songs, to upbeat rock tunes with tongue-in-cheek lyrics (abuse and profanities all in the name of fun).

There's no need for more words of persuasion, just go along and see the Snatchettes play and make up your own mind!

SubStation - 3.30pm

SubStation is a hard- hitting four-piece from Lismore.

Drawing inspiration from multiple genres including punk, rock, metal and grunge, these guys promise a great show every time they take the stage.

SubStation have shared the stage with some big names such as Steve Lucas (X) Kim Salmon (Beasts of Bourbon) and more recent successful acts such as Born Lion.

SubStation have also taken their share of awards, being crowned CSG Idols at The North Coast National Show (2013) for their Anti-CSG song Water is Sacred and just recently took out the Rock category and Songwriter of the Year at the Lismore Young Songwriters' Competition. With their new album just released and a tour on the horizon, 2014 really is a massive year for SubStation.
