After a sell-out event in February, Mountain Sounds Festival is returning in 2016, and has just dropped its first lineup, which includes The Strokes’ guitarist Albert Hammond Jr., Melbourne indie outfit Alpine, dance trio Art vs Science and the event’s headliners, The Jezabels.
Other acts announced on Mountain Sounds’ first 2016 lineup include English electronic duo Jack Beats, The Delta Riggs, Green Buzzard, guitar master Harts, Hockey Dad, Nina Las Vegas, Holy Holy and I Know Leopard. Catch the lineup in full, below.
This year’s Mountain Sounds Festival took place over four stages, and featured the likes of Touch Sensitive, Tkay Maidza, Alison Wonderland, DZ Deathrays, The Jungle Giants and Kilter.
Next year, the boutique and chilled vibes of Mountain Sounds are expanding over five stages, including a new “secret” area featuring markets, pop-up bars, live art and installations.
The event, which prides itself on environmental sustainability, is returning to Mount Penang Parklands in Kariong, New South Wales, with options for punters to camp on Friday and Saturday nights around the festival.
Mountain Sounds Festival 2016 is going down on Saturday, 20th February. Catch the full first lineup announcement, below.
