A full three months ahead of the event, OzFest has sold out of early bird tickets. It’s not really any surprise given the lineup.
Ball Park Music, British India, Urthboy and Hockey Dad lead the bill for the one day festival which takes place on the Gold Coast on 28 January. Luke Million, Bec Sandridge and Bleach Girls are also on the lineup.
Now in its fourth year Ozfest has established itself as one of the premiere events in the summer calendar for southeast Queensland
With artists like Illy, The Preatures, Seth Sentry, San Cisco, Allday, Art Vs Science and Kingswood having already bought blistering performances to the stage, organisers have upped the ante for 2017.
Festival programmer Ian Smith said “our key focus for the festival is to ensure we are bringing the best acts possible across a diverse range of genres to the good folk of SEQ…and not for a ridiculous price.”
No question, they’ve delivered.
But now that early bird tickets have sold out, you best get a move on if you want to be front and centre to wrap up the festive season with one almighty hoedown at Miami Tavern.
And if you need a throw back to last year’s event, here’s what our roving raconteur Carmel E Lewis had to say.
Everyone was well and truly in the groove. The sun began to set, the clouds throwing out amazing colours and shapes as I hung from the upstairs car-park with a view of the whole she-bang. The seas thumped on the other side, vistas over the suburbs into the hinterland hills.
It was so damn cool. I dove back down from my lofty ivory tower into the frantic guts of the mosh and picture-pit. Man. This was some kind of wonderful. I was in my element.
No clashes, killer bands, good food and beer, right across the road from the beach. If that doesn’t scream #winning to you, I don’t know what will.
General admission tickets are $69 via moshix.com.au.
