The eighth annual The Hills Are Alive festival has announced its dates for the 2016 Easter weekend, and has locked in its first lineup announcement for next week.
The Hills Are Alive 2016 will go down on the rolling hills of Victoria’s South Gippsland over three days and two nights from the 25th to 27th March, with the lineup set to drop at 9am next Wednesday, 2nd December.
The Hills Are Alive has outsold its sister festival NYE On The Hill for three years in a row, and is promising to promote the best up-and-coming local talent once again in 2016.
This year’s the Hills Are Alive festival featured acts like Remi, Canberra electronica outfit SAFIA, Pierce Brothers and Tassie singer-songwriter Asta.
In 2016, the BYO camping festival will once again be invite-only. As organisers explain, “To attend you need to be invited by someone who has attended before or by one of the artists performing (who will whisper ‘The Farmer’s Secret Password’ to you which you need to be able to purchase tickets).”
