Just in case you needed any more proof that Wollongong is absolutely crushing it with their live music scene, take a gander at the lineup for this year's two-day Yours & Owls festival. Announced literal seconds ago, the 69-act bill is led by such top-notch Australian artists as Amy Shark, Courtney Barnett, Golden Features and Hot Dub Time Machine.
And that's just the headliners – further down the list, you'll find legends both up-and-coming and established in the forms of Angie McMahon, WAAX, Skegss, Ceres, The Delta Riggs, Frenzal Rhomb, Totally Unicorn, The Lazy Susans, West Thebarton and Ocean Grove (to name just a small few).
There's plenty to get pumped about in the way of international artists, too, with names like Love Fame Tragedy (from the UK), Bass Drum Of Death (from the US of A), Fucked Up (from Canada), The Beths and Die! Die! Die! (both from New Zealand) all set to strut their stuff across the festival's four stages.
Yours & Owls (or as most regular punters will acknowledge it, "The Fezzie") will return to its usual home of Wollongong's impossibly green, beachside Stuart Park in 2019, and is set to go down across the long weekend of Saturday October 5th and Sunday 6th. There's an exclusive presale for Apple Pay customers kicking off tomorrow morning, and one for Yours & Owls subscribers launching on Thursday before general tickets go onsale next Monday.
If previous years have taught us anything, it's that you'll want to get your mitts on tickets ASAP – they won't last long.
