With the days getting longer and the nights shorter, the countdown is on until your favourite springtime festival hits the shores of Wollongong for another year of sun, tunes and booze! The team at Yours & Owls Festival have decided to ramp up the party vibes by adding an extra 2 stages to their already heaving line-up, which means double the artists to get your ears around!
Celebrating the ‘gongs homegrown talent, the Rad Stage has been curated by Rad Bar venue owner Daniel Radburn, who has staged some of the town’s finest local artists, including a few of the big names on the line-up. So what can you expect from this stage? Radburn says “Genres ranging from pop to dub to hardcore as well as a couple of Wollongong’s favourite ‘out of towners’ coming to join the party. The local scene must be supported so come and check out some of the bands killing it right now before they take over the world”.
The weird brains and scrawny brawn behind past Y & O’s rave caves, Panoptes Palace and The Trance Mahal, are back at it again this year with BF5: Das Schmeltz Haus. Drawing inspiration from the blast furnaces of Wollongong’s heavy industries (which we think are on the up), the design this year is made of pure ‘strayan steel. You will experience well above standard atmospheric temperature and pressure, brought by a firey line up of DJs hand picked by our one and only thirsty union boss. Consider yourself warned by WHS section… get too close to blast furnace and you’ll smelt your face off. Das ist wunderbar!
