Sugar Mountain has delivered a stomper line up for 2017 proving once more its status as one of the country’s best celebrations of new music and art from around the world. Names like Blood Orange, Big Scary, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Pantha Du Prince immediately jumped out as must-sees, especially considering this Melbourne date is to be Blood Orange’s only gig in the city.
However elsewhere on the line up are artists who we’ve heard snippets of, but haven’t had the full experience of yet. Weaving in many different influences with the addition of artists including Weyes Blood, Kelsey Lu, Beppe Loda and Little Simz, Sugar Mountain has curated one tasty international contingent for 2017…and they’re only just getting warmed up.
On the festival’s art program, the organisers will be bringing MOMO out from the US, Robyn Moody and Caroline Polachek from Canada, not to mention showcasing Australian talent in Elliott Routledge and Caleb O’Shea, to name a few.
Returning to Sugar Mountain next year is the experimental Sensory restaurant, which made its debut this year. The Boiler Room also makes its return, as well much more for for punters to immerse themselves in. First release festival tickets are on sale now for $99, with prices set to increase once they sell out – head on over and buy them HERE.
Sugar Mountain is going to be held at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne on January 21st – an 18+ event, check out the official event poster below!
