Sugar Mountain Festival Announces Full 2018 Lineup

Melbourne’s Sugar Mountain festival has announced its full (and very sweet) music and arts lineup for 2018.

Sugar Mountain will host another eclectic bunch of international and local names come January, led by the likes of rapper Joey Bada$$, Chicago R&B act Jamila Woods and experimental producers Laurel Halo and Actress.

English hip-hop artist J Hus was the first act confirmed for Sugar Mountain 2018, and he’ll be joined by Aussie talents like Cut Copy, Beaches, Body Type and Stella Donnelly on next year’s roster, which you can view in all its sugary glory below.

Returning to the Victorian College Of The Arts on Saturday, 20th January, Sugar Mountain 2018 will also be expanding into the neighbouring Australian Centre for Contemporary Art and the Melbourne Arts Precinct for the first time, and (as always) there’ll be a bunch of audiovisual art on offer from the likes of dancer/choreographer Waangenga Blanco, Khalif Diouf (Le1f) and Sydney producer Marcus Whale.

The festival’s Sensory restaurant will return, as will Boiler Room, which will be broadcasting sets live to the internets.

See below for the full music and arts lineups, and ticket details.
