Victoria’s Philip Island will again be rockin’ over New Year’s Eve as the Pyramid Rock Festival returns for its ninth year.
Regarded by many local music lovers as a great alternative to Falls Festival, this year’s Pyramid lineup is “proudly, one with majority Australian artist representation”, along with a handful of great international acts.
The first announcement of acts was revealed this afternoon – with US punks Anti-Flag and UK dance crew Friendly Fires leading the international pack.
As for the local talent, 360, Children Collide, Karnivool, Illy and Stonefield will all be there – while Xavier Rudd will set a record by becoming the first artist to play at the festival on four different occasions.
Tickets have been kept at the same prices for the third year in a row, and will go on sale to the general public at 9am on Tuesday, September 4. While we haven’t got pricing information yet, early bird tickets were sold to Pyramid Rock members earlier this year for $195 (2 days) and $231 (3 days) respectively.
UPDATE – 6.30pm: Tickets will be $279 for a 2 day pass and $314 for a 3 Day Pass. Pyramid Rock members can get access to a pre-sale on Tuesday, August 14 between 9-11am and 8-10pm, and get $30 off their ticket prices.
The Pyramid Rock Festival will take place from Saturday, December 29, 2012 to Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at Philip Island, Victoria.
