Taking place at the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre, the 2022 instalment will be the first time the event has gone ahead since 2019. The festival had intended on celebrating its 30th year in 2020, but had to cancel both that and the 2021 iteration due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
At the time, organisers thanked patrons for their ongoing support, writing: “I want to acknowledge all who worked hard and dreamed even harder to will this year’s festival into being. And everyone who sent letters checking in on us, with ideas, hopes and wishes – I feel your energy. Thank you.”
Ballot, general sale and ‘Aunty’s Last Chance’ application-based tickets are all sold out.
The full line-up for Meredith Music Festival 2022 is:
The Comet Is Coming
Sharon Van Etten
Erika de Casier
