Everything under sun at festival

The Festival of the Sun is a beachside festival - a two-day music celebration of indie, hip hop, blues & roots, avant-garde and solo acts, set on the beach in Port Macquarie on December 12 and 13.

Names on this year's bill include The Panics, Lior, Kate Miller-Heidke, True Live, Operator Please, Wolf & Cub, That 1 Guy, The Vasco Era, Watussi, Mary Trembles, Dallas Frasca, Flamingo Crash, Roger That, Jezabels, The Blackwater Fever, Mick Hart, Paul Greene, Abbie Cardwell, Reggie D, Chris Tejcek and Cleveland Blues.

“I am just as excited about the smaller acts as the bigger bands higher up on the bill,” said Scott Mesiti of FOTSUN management.

“I love seeing the look on the crowd's face when some of the smaller acts, they have never seen before, just blow them away. I'm tipping a young band call Barrel House to do just that this year. They are local to Port Macquarie and killing it on the East Coast.”

We just love our summer music festivals in Australia and, believe it or not, the Festival of the Sun is one December gig on the coast you can still get a ticket to - for the moment.

Tickets are $105 + BF including two nights camping.
