Yours and Owls is happily going ahead this April 17 and 18, 2021, with a number of measures in place to keep the festival stress-free and COVID-safe, without compromising on fun, sustainability, and the ability for festivalgoers to have a good party.
One of these changes involved moving the party to Dalton Park, Wollongong, two minutes away from their well-loved Stuart Park.
The festival line-up has also been changed. Due to border restrictions, NZ sensations BENEE and MC Wax Mustang will no longer be able to play. Dope Lemon, fronted by Angus Stone, and rapper extraordinaire Nerve will be stepping in and playing in their place.
The biggest change, however, is the zoning. To keep everyone safe, Yours and Owls has split the festival up into four separate zones, with two revolving stages in the middle. By incorporating two stages, record players and Lazy Susans, all patrons will have a perfect view of the stages. The stages will be accompanied by large LED screens, as well as state-of-the-art PA systems, so patrons will easily hear and see the acts.
The stages will be the only thing shared by the zones, which will otherwise be self-contained, with their own entry and exit points, as well as separate bars, dining areas, food stalls, toilets, merch, and hand sanitising stations.
COVID safety marshals will also be present at the festival and will be happily answering any questions patrons have upon arrival.
If you haven’t already bought your tickets, there are a handful of tickets left. You can buy them HERE.
