FOTSUN welcomes in a fresh decade with hot new additions!

ILLY, Jebediah, Thundamentals, British India, The Delta Riggs, Alpine,  Bad//Dreems, Sleep Makes Waves, Ecca Vandal, Northeast Party House, Harts,  Bootleg Rascal, Tired Lion, The Fumes, The Belligerents, Animaux, Major  Leagues, Le Pie, Ivan Ooze and one lucky triple j Unearthed winner!  To help celebrate Year 11, FOTSUN will be introducing Wabi Sabi (roughly translated from Japanese as “Nothing lasts forever”), an interactive art showcase that will serve as an entrée on the Thursday (December 10) for a limited amount of punters. For the main, it’s another first for FOTSUN, with live music kicking off at midday on the Friday. These additional band slots mean 2015 will feature the biggest FOTSUN lineup to date! The festival proper will run over both the Friday and Saturday (December 11 –12). FOTSUN Festival Director Simon Luke says of the changes to 2015’s festival format: “As we entered a new decade of FOTSUN we wanted our focus to reinforce what  everyone loves about the festival, making additions we felt would keep increasing these experiences.” “Wabi Sabi delivers a visually artistic element, welcoming a range of pop-up workshops, street art, sand sculpting and food stalls to satisfy any taste. Resident graffiti artist Sigh Luxton will highlight this portion of the festival. Ultimately, Wabi Sabi allows punters to let out their inner creativity in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.” “Musically, we are psyched by the acts we’ve secured and believe 2015’s lineup includes some of the best talent Australia has to offer.” Tickets are available for $190 (+ booking fee) for two nights’ camping and only $35 per person for Thursday Night Wabi Sabi camping (+ booking fee) (car passes sold separately). For those who prefer the VIP treatment to setting up a beachside campsite, a limited number of cabins and cottages are available in conjunction with Sundowner Breakwall Tourist Park. This year, overnight and ‘day’ Tent City packages will be available, allowing festival-goers to be close to the entertainment in a secure precinct. Free shuttle buses will be running all weekend and include a concierge service, which drops punters without cars right to their sites. FOTSUN is an 18+ BYO (yes, STILL BYO!) event, however families are encouraged to attend; children under 10 receive free entry when accompanied by an adult. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, September 1, at 10AM, with only 3,000 available, so set your iCal, scribble in your diary and top up your credit card as it’s no secret that tickets for FOTSUN are a hot commodity and will sell out swiftly. Tickets, plus any additional information, will be available at fotsun.com]]>
