Final line-up for festival

With just a little under six weeks until the Festival of the Sun gets Port Macquarie pumping (December 11 and 12), organisers have released the final line-up for this funky boutique festival on the beach.

Festival of the Sun has announced the latest additions to their line-up – Red Riders, Me, The Foreign Objects, Ashleigh Mannix, Geoff Turnbull, Nick & Liesl, Nathan Kaye plus the winner of the Triple J Unearthed competition, local Port Macquarie band Royal Chant.

These acts will join acts already confirmed – Spiderbait, Little Birdy, The Beautiful Girls, Children Collide, Urthboy, Pez, Philadelphia Grand Jury, Bob Log III, The Wilson Pickers, Grant Walmsley & The Agents Of Piece, and Bonjah.

Set right on the beach in beautiful Sundowner Breakwall Tourist Park, the Festival of the Sun is the grooviest summer festival in Oz combining sun, sand, surf and smashing sounds from some of Australia’s best home-grown talent.

There’s some news for punters this year – Festival of the Sun (which is still BYO) is now an 18+ event.

There are only 3000 tickets available so you’ll want to be quick to get yourself a spot at this year’s festival. (The limited numbers mean that the festival can maintain its relaxed, funky vibe.)

Tickets are $120 + BF (yes, that’s camping included) at www.fotsun.com.au.
