Sugar Mountain 2015 Line Up Drops!

Eighteen months in the making, Sugar Mountain 2015 returns with an offering that makes an immense step towards our ambitious vision laid out years ago. A partnership with Mushroom Group & a new venue Melbourne's most progressive music and arts festival will be back and better than ever!

One of Melbourne's creative hubs – Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) in the city's Southbank precinct will be the new home of the festival and it'll be the first event of its type ever held on the grounds. Aside from its cultural significance, the new location immensely increases the scope of Sugar Mountain: now a five-stage affair, comprising of three outdoor and two indoor stages, a massive increase in scale. The main stage will sit at the end of a closed Dodds St, with the Sturt St car park and Margaret Lawrence Gallery courtyard also being utilised. VCA's Space 28 and Studio 45 will be home to some of the festival's indoor offerings.

To accompany Sugar Mountain's new home comes a music and art program featuring some of the most influential, most experimental and most iconic artists on the planet. Expanding to five stages has provided the platform for an expansive, well-rounded, amazing line-up which traverses genres and generations.

And it's not just music and art that'll stimulate your senses – they've teamed up with notable Melbourne restaurants and bars to whet your appetite. Check back soon as the names and specific details are unveiled.

In 2015 Sugar Mountain is also thrilled to join forces with Brooklyn's Terrible Records – run by Chris Taylor and Ethan Silverman (Grizzly Bear, CANT) – for a one-off show titled Terrible Love, featuring Kirin J. Callinan.

While they've grown significantly in 2015, it's crucial to the festival's vision to create an immersive, comfortable environment. This means capping capacity at 5,500 tickets.
