It’s not long to go now before Wollongong hosts one of our favourite festivals, the mighty Yours & Owls. The festival will be held on the weekend of the 14th and 15th October, having relocated to the grounds of the University of Wollongong.
The already impressive lineup was bolstered last week by the addition of electronic duo Flight Facilities and thrice platinum-selling electronic rockers Pendulum.
Amongst the many highlights on Saturday are Bakar, Hilltop Hoods, Ocean Alley and Golden Features. Sunday includes Safia, Pacific Avenue, Meg Mac, Chet Faker and Royel Otis. You will be rocking from the midday kickoff until 11pm on Saturday and 10pm on Sunday.
The internationals are well and truly back with Descendents, Earl Sweatshirt, Hobo Johnson, Lil Tjay, Masego, Oliver Tree and Peach Pit all on the bill.
Along with local established stars such as the ‘Hoods, some of the most exciting acts in the country are going to be at Y&O. Full Flower Moon Band, The Terrys, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers and The Terrys will get you busy in the mosh pit, just to name a few.
The set times have been released, so you can start planning your weekend. An additional stage has been created this year, titled La La La’s in honour of the local iconic venue of the same name.
As always, there will be plenty of food and drink options available, so charge your phone, bring a hat and get ready to dance your feet off.
And don’t forget to visit the Rad Stage,which gives local Wollongong bands a chance for their moment in the sun. Discovery next years stars before they hit the big stage.
In the new home at the University of Wollongong, you will find plenty of green spaces if you need some down-time. We’ve included a map to help prepare for the weekend.
