The Voice's Simon Meli to perform at Spring Festival with two Australia's Got Talent contestants

Another two local music protegees have joined the lineup for the Strathfield Spring Festial - McDonald College primary students Jagger Alexander-Erber and Jeremy Yong. 

Both have appeared on the hit show, Australia's Got Talent where they both blew away the judges with their impressive musical skills. 

Nine-year-old Jagger, a drummer, has recently been approached by Fred Durst (formerly the frontman of rock band Limp Bizkit) to play on his upcoming solo album and has also received endorsements from DW Drums, PDP Drums, Monster Headphones and clothing label Famous Stars and Straps.

"I'm very produ to be involved with the Strathfield Spring Festival. After playing at some of the most iconic locations in Los Angeles, it feels amazing to be back on home soil to be part of this," he said. 

Ten-year-old guitaris, Jeremey has been endorsed by various guitar brands and made a guest appearance on Korea's highest rated talented show and performed live to over 30,000 people at MFest in Darling Harbour.

"It's really awesome to be part of the festival this year and support my local community. I can't wait to sing and play on stage and give everyone a taste of my own arrangements of some really cool rock and blues songs," he said. 

They will be joining The Voice finalist, Simon Meli. 

Simon, an Inner West local, appeared on the show as part of Team Ricky and he is now toruing with his band, The Widowbirds. 

"I really can't wait for this huge community festival to come around this year. Being from the west and now living in the Inner West, this festival is bridging the geographical gap for me and the band," he said. 

"Coming into spring, I think it's the perfect opportunity to not only peform for the community but to also get out there and meet and greet a lot of followers since The Voice journey. Double bonus is that little people get to come along. Our riock and roll is built for all kinds. It's love, soul, rock and roll and it's a kind of music that will never let you down."

But The Spring Festival will also host one of the Sydney heats of the annual Telstra Road to Discovery music program - a chance for a Strathfield artist to win a 12 month music career development package. 

Former Killing Heidi frontwoman, Ella Hooper will be hosting the competition. 

Six local blues and roots, folk and country artists will perform with a former Telstra Road contestant, Nick Kingswell. 

The winner from Strathfield will go on to compete with other artists from around Sydney.
