It’s fair to say that the 2017 Yours & Owls Festival in the coastal NSW city of Wollongong really took things up a notch, with legendary rockers At The Drive-In headlining proceedings. This year, while the top of the lineup is a local affair – and an impressive one at that – an incredible international lineup, with a substantial focus on emerging local talent and a few big surprises along the way.

Let’s kick things off with the event’s three headliners, who need no introduction – Angus & Julia Stone, Peking Duk and Alison Wonderland will be given these duties across the two day event, taking place in Stuart Park on September 29th & 30th.

As for the surprises, we have a few international guests throw in amongst the lineup – from Canada’s Destroyer, to USA groups Liars, BOYTOY (an incredible all-female trio from NYC you all need to get behind) and Listener. Keen observers will be excited to see the return of Step-Panther on the lineup, Gareth Liddiard’s latest project Tropical Fuck Storm and Wollongong’s own 90’s grunge heroes Tumbleweed.

Beyond this, it’s a who’s who of “who’s hot right now” in Australian music, from Jungle Giants to Ocean Alley, Hockey Dad to Touch Sensitive, Alex The Astronaut to Cub Sport and D.D Dumbo to Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever; many of whom are playing this festival amongst a slew of international touring. And some, like D.D Dumbo, who have been rather quiet of late. Could this mean a new album is on its way?
