UPDATE: The 2017 Festival Of The Sun lineup has now been announced.
ORIGINAL STORY: Dear Port Macquarie punters, make sure you circle the weekend of December 7th, 8th & 9th in your calendars because you’ve got a hot date with Festival Of The Sun.
The three-day NSW regional romp is back for another crack in 2017, with organisers announcing issuing an official save-the-date and unveiling this year’s big theme.
This summer’s festival action will be the honorary outer space edition (pew! pew!) and they’ve got some other out-of-this-world news to boot.
The fun will blast off on Thursday night with the return of the fest’s BYO “silent comedy” spectacular, food truck and free workshops, with bands starting four hours earlier on Friday (midday instead of 4pm) to accommodate “more time slots for the awesome selection of this year’s acts”.
“With 4 more awesome sets and 4 more epic side shows this means that you can get in early, get set up and get straight into it,” organisers promise.
As for the secret identity of this year’s bill, it’s set to be unveiled in early August so stay tuned. Last year’s batch was of course the frothworthy combo of Gang Of Youths, Seth Sentry, Urthboy, L-Fresh The Lion and loads more.
Tickets will go on sale from Thursday, 31st of August at 10am.
Catch all the details below.
