The two-day mega-fezzie will take over the University Of Wollongong this October.
The full lineup for Yours & Owls 2023 has arrived, and… Look, we’ll level with you: we have no idea what to say here. This bill is simply so stacked – so undeniably loaded with god-tier acts, to the point where some of the smallest names on the poster could be headliners anywhere else – that we’re completely lost for words.
To start with, we’ve got a jaw-dropping 17 (yes, seventeen) headliners, including the Canadian legends in Peach Pit, our Kiwi faves in Broods, the UK’s iconic Bakar, and a total of six genre-hopping visitors from the US of A: Descendents, Earl Sweatshirt, Hobo Johnson, Lil Tjay, Masego and Oliver Tree. And of course, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to homegrown talent – bumping shoulders with all of those will be Chet Faker, Golden Features, Hilltop Hoods, Meg Mac, Ocean Alley, Safia and Vera Blue.
“But Ellie,” I hear you scream from the bleachers, “that’s only 16 acts! What about the 17th?” Ah – good catch, faceless reader! Well, you see… We don’t know who that is yet. Billed among the headliners is a mysterious “secret act”, the identity of whom will be revealed closer to the dates of the fezzie itself (being Saturday October 14 and Sunday 15).
Just a notch down from the headliners, we have another 25 heavyweight names to drool over, including Angel Du$t, King Mala, Phony Ppl and Wallice from the US, James Marriott and Sorry from the UK, Daily J and Fazerdaze from New Zealand, and Ekkstacy from Canada. On the Australian front, too, we’ll be catching sets from the likes of RedHook, RVG, Teen Jesus And The Jean Teasers, Tia Gostelow, The Vanns, Pacific Avenue, Teenage Dads… Way too many to stuff in a single paragraph.
From there, the bill sprawls out to reveal another 50 names – all Australian talent, no less – with at least one of your own favourite local bands sure to have made the cut. Then there’s the lineup for EDM hotspot Das Schmelthaus, where punters will get their sweat on cutting sick to sets from the likes of Cleo, Jon Watts (who’s going back-to-back with LGL), Skatebard and Tangela.
