Simon Luke, proud dad (AKA Festival Director) to FOTSUN, speaks fondly of his pride and joy:

“I’m glad to say that the smile still never leaves my face every year of FOTSUN. I feel like the festival is still so young, as the last ten years have simply flown by.

We have all been very lucky to have witnessed so many amazing artists play on our stage, and have had so many great punters and crew to share the experiences with.

I am so excited for the next 10 years of FOTSUN.”

FOTSUN sets up camp at the Sundowner Breakwall Tourist Park, which provides the perfect location on the waterfront, nearby to Port Macquarie’s CBD. This ensures the ultimate summer holiday vibe!

Festivities will kick off from the 12th-13th of December, and FOTSUN is proud to announce to partygoers that the festival is still BYO ‘fizzy drinks’ and ‘party punch’.

Tickets are $165 + booking fee, which cover the cost of two nights of beachside camping. For VIP treatment there is also the option of various cabins and cottages in conjunction with Sundowner Breakwall Tourist Park.

Although FOTSUN is an 18+ event, it has a family-friendly vibe with children under 10 receiving free entry when accompanied by an adult.

Pack up the car, road trip to Port Macquarie, throw on your superhero costume, and get ready to enjoy a sun-drenched weekend of carefree fun to a soundtrack of cracking tunes.

Tickets will go on sale on the 2nd of September at 10am. For more information and to purchase tix, please visit www.fotsun.com
