Yours & Owls festival already had us impressed enough the first time we saw it, with huge names like At The Drive In, The Presets, SAFIA, Dune Rats and Illy all converging on Wollongong for a couple of days, but they’ve just added even more.
Over 30 new acts will be taking to the festival stages, and they’ve even added a couple more of those too, with the Rad Stage being curated by Daniel Radburn of Rad Bar, and the BF5: Das Schmeltz Haus stage taken care of by the festival’s resident rave cave experts.
A stack of great emerging acts like rising punks Body Type and Brissie trio Good Boy will be making their way to the Rad Stage, while DJ and production talent like Andy Garvey, Elodie, and Jamie Blanco will be keeping the rave cave running.
“Genres ranging from pop to dub to hardcore as well as a couple of Wollongong’s favourite ‘out of towners’ coming to join the party,” Radburn says. “The local scene must be supported so come and check out some of the bands killing it right now before they take over the world.”
You can check out all of the new additions below, along with the huge list of names already on offer, from A.B. Original and Confidence Man, to Gold Class and Northlane.
Yours & Owls are also running a great under-18s event too, featuring a selection of some of the best names on the bill, which you can have a look at right here.
