Festival of the Sun Enters Its Second Decade with Succulent Line-Up

Festival of the Sun is celebrating its journey into the tweens with a massive first announcement line-up that is literally the biggest they've ever had, owing to music commencing from midday on the Friday. The two day festival, held at Sundowner Breakwall Tourist Park in Port Macquarie, New South Wales, on 11-12 December, boasts Australian acts at the peak of their game like Illy, Jebediah, Thundamentals, British India, the Delta Riggs, Alpine, Bad//Dreems, Sleep Makes Waves, Ecca Vandal, Northeast Party House, Harts, Tired Lion, Major Leagues, the Belligerents, Bootleg Rascal, the Fumes, Animaux, le Pie, Ivan Ooze and others.

The fantastic beats aren't the only thing to be excited about in Year 11: FOTSUN will be debuting Wabi Sabi, an interactive art showcase that will serve be available for exploration by punters who get excited for the Thursday night. Festival director Simon Luke says of Wabi Sabi:

"[it] delivers a visually artistic element, welcoming a range of pop-up workshops, street art, sand sculpting and food stalls to satisfy any taste. Resident graffiti artist Sigh Luxton will highlight this portion of the festival. Ultimately, Wabi Sabi allows punters to let out their inner creativity in a fun and relaxed atmosphere."

3000 tickets will be made available at 10 AM on September 1 from the festival's website. Two night's camping will set you back $190 (plus booking fees), while it's an extra $35 for the Thursday Wabi Sabi Night. More decadent lodgings are available in conjunction with the tourist park (limited), as well as a 'Tent City' option this year for more secure sites. And while FOTSUN is undoubtedly one of the most family friendly festivals you could go to, if you're over 18, it's BYO. Exactly. See you there.
