Yours and Owls Festival shifts dates to April

Rescheduled to allow for more restrictions to potentially lift

Wollongong music festival Yours and Owls has rescheduled its dates to April 17-18 next year due to restrictions brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.

Its original date was slated for January 23-24, but has now shifted to allow for more restrictions to potentially lift. However, all artists announced on the original lineup – including Tones And I, BENEE, DMA’S, Hockey Dad, Lime Cordiale and more – will remain the same.

“To spare you from the arduous details, the short story is, we want to deliver the festival to you all in the closest form possible that you are used to from us,” festival organisers said in a statement.


“With January now on our doorstep and so many regulations still up in the air, we have decided to move to April to give us a more concrete opportunity to achieve that and ensure you all have time to sort your travel and accom logistics.”

Tickets previously purchased will be honoured for the new dates. Ticketholders who are unable to make the new dates will be able to refund their tickets for 14 days from today (December 8) via their ticketing provider.

This is the second time this year that Yours and Owls festival has been postponed, with its original date set for October.

Last year’s edition of Yours & Owls featured Amy Shark, Courtney Barnett, Angie McMahon and Kira Puru, alongside Baker Boy, Skeggs, Frenzal Rhomb, Kwame and more.
