After revealing a new festival site last month – the University of Wollongong campus for the next three years – Yours & Owls returns 14-15 October with a fabulous artist line-up that’s squeal-worthy.
It’s the ultimate housewarming party with event organisers bringing together a sizzling array of international stars alongside an Aussie legion of talent to rival any festival bill.
Direct from the runways of Paris, where he soundtracked Givenchy’s Fall/Winter 23 Men’s show arrives British indie rock singer Bakar (‘Hell N Back’), alongside Grammy-nominated American rapper Earl Sweatshirt (‘Chum’), American spoken word, punk-folk, rapper Hobo Johnson, ‘Resume’ rapper Lil Tjay, Jamaican-American ‘TrapHouseJazz’ musician Masego, alternative rock-pop artist Oliver Tree and Canadian indie pop band Peach Pit.
Yours & Owls will also be graced by punk-rock royalty with Californians Descendents bringing their declared war on mediocrity to the Gong playing all their classics – from their landmark 1982 LP ‘Milo Goes To College’ through to 2022’s ‘9th & Walnut’.
Then there’s New Zealand’s favourite sibling act Broods, ‘No Diggity’ and ‘Gold’ singer Chet Faker, Australian electronic wizard Golden Features, Aussie hip hop OGs Hilltop Hoods, the ethereal vocals of Meg Mag, the psychedelic surf-rock of Ocean Alley and the flawless vocal tones of Vera Blue.
Other line-up highlights include Angel Du$t, EKKSTACY, Fazerdaze, Old Mervs, RedHook, RVG, Safia, Sorry, Teen Jesus And The Jean Teasers, Teenage Dads, The Grogans, The Terrys, The Vanns, Tia Gostelow and Wallice.
Yours & Owls will take over the University of Wollongong campus for two days, igniting the UOW’s grounds, lush green ovals and hidden laneways.
The campus site also provides several all-weather solutions to ensure Yours & Owls is more robust against all possible weather conditions. So they will see you there, rain, hail, and hopefully shine.
Tickets on sale from 8am EST on 29 June.
Yours & Owls takes place at University Of Wollongong 14-15 October.
