American singer-songwriter Cat Power will kick off the MONA weekend spectacular with her signature breathy vocals and heart-rending lyrics, launching into songs from her latest album, Sun.

The Atlanta-born musician has gone on to release nine albums since 1995, featuring singles such as The Greatest, Lived in Bars, Cross Bones Style, He War and Cherokee.

Legendary performer George Clinton will be ready to shake the house along with his groovin' group Parliament Funkadelic on Monday March 11.

The man labelled the 'Godfather of Funk' is responsible for iconic hits such as Atomic Dog, Nubian Nut and Do Fries Go with that Shake?, and is also a notable music producer working on albums for the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Bootsy Collins.

George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic are cited to be one of the innovators of funk music alongside other legendary acts such as James Brown and Sly Stone, with the group's efforts recognised in 1997 when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Clinton will be joined by his "22-piece psychedelic circus" for an out-of-this-world performance that will have MONA grooving all afternoon.
