The 1st release tickets have sold-out for the Yours & Owls festival, with the next release tickets expected to go fast with the addition of a bunch of brag-worthy artists to the line-up.

It’s time to get planning your road trip down south! Yours & Owls will be taking place over the NSW Labour Day long weekend (1st and 2nd October), across two sun-soaked days at Stuart Park near the North Wollongong Beach.

The Jezabels will be popping by the gong, the four-piece will hit Y&O’s following on from the success of their stunning third album SYNTHIA, released in February 2016 and hailed as their finest effort yet.

Shining Bird are an experimental pop band from the coastal town of Austinmer, NSW Australia. The band have just announced their sophomore album Black Opal. Mixed by Russell Webster and Tim Whitten (The Go-Betweens, Hoodoo Gurus), the album was written and recorded over the past two years in the Blue Mountains of NSW.

Lurking in the shadows of Melbourne and dragging their followers into the darkest places of the human psyche, rock and roll phenomenon Pagan have spent their first year of existence gaining notoriety from a ritualistic live show and growing a cult following off the back of a four song demo. More recently, their single ‘Surfers Paradise’ showed off their raw power and prowess, getting spun on triple j and community radio stations around the country. Grab your dancing shoes, iron your best turtleneck and put the Campari on ice – you’re ready to pray at the church of Pagan!

Emerging from the seemingly sleepy suburbs of Adelaide, Horror My Friend’s approach to noisey, indie-rock is youthful and idiosyncratic. Tapping into the spirit of 90’s college-rock and shoe-gaze the trio break new ground with their raw yet melodic auteurist songwriting, bolstered by frenetic, energetic live performances.

First release tickets to Yours & Owls Festival have now sold out, with second release tickets are on sale now. via moshtix & yoursandowls.com.au
