The medieval-themed event is set to take place at Ballarat’s Kryal Castle on 30-31 December. In addition to its live music program, the festival will feature a maze, dungeons, torture museums, knights’ towers, and what a press release calls the “secret dragons labyrinth”.
Sydney punk outfit Hellions are slated to perform for the first time since last January, playing 2016’s ‘Opera Oblivia’ in full. Melbourne pop-rockers The Getaway Plan will also perform a record of their own from cover to cover, opting for their 2008 breakout album ‘Other Voices, Other Rooms’.
The festival will also feature multiple acoustic stages, a lineup of DJs and “medieval performances”, details for all of which are yet to be shared.
Tickets for the inaugural Knight & Day festival go on sale from 10am AEST on Thursday September 23, with a presale starting on Tuesday 21. Full details on those can be found on the festival’s website.
