Good news guys. North West Festival is coming back in 2015. Not to be confused with that other North West festival, this Aussie music festival will take over Western Australia’s Port Hedland this August and will be headlined by Canberra duo Peking Duk.
The Pilbara music festival – which started in 2012 and thus actually beat Kanye and Kim to that name, by the way – will take place from Friday 21st until Sunday 23rd August 2015 at the Port Hedland Turf Club.
Peking Duk, fresh from rocking Coachella, will play the headlining spot, and the rest of the lineup is expected to be announced soon. No word yet if old mate Karl Stefanovic will make a cameo, but here’s hoping.
Free camping will be offered to punters over two nights, from Friday afternoon until Sunday morning. Stay tuned as a range of ticket types will be released in the coming weeks.
The 2014 North West Festival saw the likes of The Dandy Warhols, Wolfmother, Illy, Ball Park Music and Missy Higgins make their way to the Pilbara port, for a weekend of festivities. Check some highlights from the 2014 event in the video below.
