Poison City Weekender 2015 Lineup And Dates Announced

The Smith Street Band have been named to headline Poison City Records’ annual Melbourne music festival, Poison City Weekender. The local rabble-rousers headline a bill stuffed with some of the label’s finest punk and indie-rock acts, including Clowns, Luca Brasi and Soundwave 2015 alumni, The Bennies.

There’s also an influx of heavy-hitters from the US, including Iron Chic, Andrew Jackson Jihad, Modern Baseball, Self Defense Family and The Sidekicks. And that’s just the first announcement.

“Time to hit up your boss for that annual leave and check on cheap flights to Melbourne!” The folks at Poison City have instructed the rest of Australia via their official website. “WEEKENDER FEST dates are locked and loaded.”

Those dates occur across three days in September, which, as the festival’s title would suggest, also land on a weekend. Weekender Fest will take place across Friday 4th, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th September, with exact venues to be announced at a later date.

Running officially since 2009, the festival has hosted a diverse range of bands from across Australia and abroad, including Rival Schools, Knapsack, Samiam, Cheap Girls and Joyce Manor.

Tickets to the 2015 instalment go on sale from April 17th via Poison City Records.
