Find that guy that keeps saying Aussie festivals are dead and sit him down for some hard education, because Yours & Owls has dropped a colossal line-up for their 2017 party lead by none other than Texan post-hardcore legends At The Drive In (ATDI). The Presets will be helping ATDI lead the charge, alongside a bunch of brilliant acts coming across from the US, including AJJ, Le Butcherettes, Sorority Noise, The Orwells, as well as New Zeland’s own Electric Wire Hustle.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a weekend in Wollongong without some solid bands repping the local scene, and Yours & Owls has pulled some major names from around the country, like Northlane, Alex Lahey, Dune Rats, The Preatures and Ali Barter. The little festival that could is now battling with the big dogs, drawing bands that have notched up appearances at Groovin’ The Moo, Laneway and Splendour in the Grass.
Like last year, the full line-up is catering to all kinds, with plenty of rock, punk, hardcore, hip hop, pop and electronic music on the bill. Tickets to the two-day bash by the beach (seriously, the location will melt your eyeballs) were gone in a flash last year - camping spots disappeared in a flurry, while one and two-day passes weren’t far behind.
Still not convinced? Check out our coverage from Yours & Owls 2016 and try to resist the call of the ‘gong. Pre-release tickets go on sale this Friday (19th May), while general passes are available Monday, May 22nd. You can pick up camping, one-day and two-day passes from the Yours & Owls website or Moshtix.
