It might be chilly as hell outside but the 2019 Yours & Owls Festival lineup is surely hot enough to keep you toasty for the winter months, sustaining you with enough warmth to last until that glorious October weekend in Wollongong.
The first big ol’ announcement is here, and the coal coast is set to see the likes of Courtney Barnett, Amy Shark, Golden Features, and Hot Dub Time Machine has headliners, with a real smorgasbord of friends along for the ride.
Yours & Owls Festival is smashing out of Stuart Park in Wollongong on October 5 & 6, and acts to take the stage include Ruel, Baker Boy, The Beths, Totally Unicorn, Die!Die!Die!, Hatchie, Kira Puru, Ocean Grove, WAAX, Skegss, Fucked Up, Meg Mac, Frenzal Rhomb, Ceres and a whooooole bunch more.
Keen eyes will notice a little band called Love Fame Tragedy from the UK billed up pretty high, and who else is from the UK and shows up at just about every Aussie music festival?
Yep, that’s right, Love Fame Tragedy is the solo project of Matt ‘Murph’ Murphy from The Wombats. Truly cannot get enough of this fine country, that man.
An interesting inclusion on the Yours & Owls festival lineup is Sneaky Sound System, coming in red hot from those mid-00s dirty electro underage dance parties you probably went to as a kid.
Christ, what a throwback – smashing back V energy drinks and pashing boys in the darkened corner while ‘UFO‘ blares over the speakers.
