One of the best things about summer is the fact that the days go on forever, which means that Aussie music festivals feel like they lasts an eternity. But what ones are the best to hit now that the warmer months are just about here? Check out our big master post below of all the summer music festivals that are essential to get along to this festival season.

I don’t know about you but there have been countless times where I’ve tried to find somewhere that listed all the essential Aussie music festivals in one place, so I can figure out my summer sesh times, and wrangle my group chat in time to sort our shit out. Well, now it’s here for you, from me. All the big players and boutique festivals with their respective lineups, dates, venues, and tickets.

This will be updated as we get more information on announcements, sell-outs, cancellations, venue changes, and everything in between, so keep an eye here if you’re keen to get the skinny on Aussie music festivals across 2019 and 2020.
