Festival of the Sun returns to Port Macquarie for its 12th year in 2016, bringing with them a strong and brilliantly curated line up of Australian artists for the ride. The ‘Deep Sea Edition’ of FOTSUN this year will be hosting the likes of Gang of Youths, The Smith Street Band, Montaigne, Seth Sentry and more on the North Coast this December 9th – 10th, with punters invited to arrive early (Thursday, December 8th) to kick things off on site ahead of the live music program starting on Friday.
“As one of Australia’s longest standing festivals, we understand the core values of what our punters want.” Festival Director Simon Luke has noted. “This year marks many exciting things for FOTSUN, continuing to bring in new elements to keep things fun and fresh without compromising the ethos of what brings people back year after year.”
Art workshops, food trucks and live comedy will be on the menu for Thursday at FOTSUN, so rock up early, secure a sweet camp spot and get your festival weekend started in style.
Tickets for Festival of the Sun are available for $195 plus booking fees for two nights of camping, while Thursday night camping is also available for $45 per person (plus booking fees). Car passes are sold separately, while VIP packages are also available for those who want to post up near the beach or at the Sundowner Breakwall Tourist Park.
The festival remains a BYO, 18+ event, though families are more than welcome, with kids under 10 receiving free entry if accompanied by an adult. Grab your tickets from 10am, September 1st and be quick, as there are only 3000 available.
