VANFEST is returning to the New South Wales town of Forbes this year, packing a lineup led by the likes of John Butler Trio, Perth rockers Birds Of Tokyo, rapper Illy and homegrown indie outfit Sticky Fingers.
Also included on this year’s VANFEST lineup are the likes of Brisbane indie-pop troupe Sheppard, the genre-blending Bootleg Rascal and blues/rock project Twin Fires. Catch the full lineup, below.
Last year’s inaugural VANFEST was headlined by Chet Faker, Matt Corby and British India, but VANFEST Festival Director Matt Clifton says this year’s event will top last year’s effort.
“The entire Forbes community has really gotten behind the event, from the council to local businesses and charities,” he says. “It just goes to show that being a fan of music is universal; it doesn’t matter if you’re from the city or the country. We can’t wait to make VANFEST 2015 even bigger.”
Aside from the tunes, this year’s VANFEST is also promising VIP bars, meet and greets, camping (and glamping) opportunities, a tent city and a wide selection of food and drink.
VANFEST 2015 is set to take place on Saturday, 5th December. Camping, transport and event tickets will be available soon, but the festival’s lineup can be viewed below.
