Festival of the Sun 2017 - Sydney Events | ImGoingOut

Welcome to the Outer Space Edition of FOTSUN. In 2017, the iconic Port Macquarie event is ready to take you to the final frontier of festival fun from December 7 – 9. Brace yourself for takeoff, people – here’s this year’s earth-trembling lineup: Meg Mac, Ball Park Music, The Preatures, Horrorshow, Holy Holy, Kim Churchill, Bad//Dreems, Sampa the Great, The Bennies, Ali Barter, Ivan Ooze, The Cactus Channel, Dear Seattle, Press Club, Maddy Jane, Betty and Oswald, Wharves, Sons of Jaguar, Scabz and one lucky triple j Unearthed winner! FOTSUN Festival Director and aspiring astronaut Simon Luke said: “After such positive feedback on last year’s larger lineup and bigger side stage artists, we’ve continued to build FOTSUN in 2017 and are looking toward a bright future." “We’re really proud of the fact the FOTSUN experience is so unique that we attract lots of artists and industry who simply attend to hang out and catch up, including many past performers, who are always welcome!" For those sun-lovin’ space cadets who want prime position, FOTSUN is opening the Breakwall Holliday Park doors on Thursday, December 7 at 2PM for Wabi Sabi. Pro tip: don’t sweat if you’re lacking chic alien accessories, since you can just make them at Wabi Sabi’s many art workshops! Also on Thursday: Silent Comedy… because in space, no one can hear you laugh; local legend (some reckon he fell from Mars) Sigh Luxton will be working on his out of this world street art; and if you’re hungry but don’t want Space Food Sticks, heaps of food trucks will be about (vego and vegan options included). Come Friday, make sure you eat your bacon, eggs, and tofu early and that the tinnies have been left to chill overnight, because bands begin at noon – and they’ll be on till 10PM!
