Yours & Owls festival to go ahead this April

Tones and I, BENEE, DMA's and more are set to perform

Organisers of Yours & Owls have announced that the festival will go ahead as planned this April.

The 2020 edition of the long-running Wollongong event was rescheduled last June due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, and was originally scheduled to take place in January of this year at its usual home of Stuart Park.

Last December, Yours & Owls was rescheduled a second time to allow for the potential for restrictions to be lifted.

Artists billed to play include Tones and I, BENEE, DMA’s, Hockey Dad, Lime Cordiale, PNAU, Stand Atlantic, The Vanns, George Alice and Cosmo’s Midnight among others. Find the full lineup here.
