Mountain Sounds Festival 2019 Announces Biggest Lineup Ever
Update 11.05am 09/02: It seems the festival market in NSW is more dire than we anticipated as organisers for Mountain Sounds Festival have announced its cancellation one week from its start date. The news comes after rumours reported by The Industry Observer that the festival would announce its cancellation as early as this Monday coming.
A few days ago, Mountain Sounds Festival also announced downsizing measures to save on licensing costs—resulting an entire stage and multiple acts being removed from the bill. In a statement on the festival’s official Facebook, they continue:
“…further conditions and financial obligations were imposed on the festival, which were impossible to meet […] Our submissions were consistent with last year’s operation, yet this year authorities seemed adamant to penalise us on technicalities and clerical errors. It was strongly indicated to us that we were not going to be granted the necessary approvals required for the 2019 event to proceed next weekend. The combination of excessive costs, additional licensing conditions and the enforcement of a stricter timeline left us no option but to cancel the event.”
Original Story: As each year goes by, it’s maddening just how much bigger Mountain Sounds Festival continues to get. The multi-day camping festival in the Central Coast has announced its giant lineup for 2019 and it does not disappoint.
Leading the bunch is Australia heartthrobs, Angus & Julia Stone along with Courtney Barnett and What So Not. With three headliners spread across two days, there’s still so much more action happening. That’s without mentioning Thundamentals, Middle Kids, Slumberjack, Rolling Blackout Coastal Fever, Stella Donnelly, Kwame and literally so many more.
The festival has big UK influence with Yungblud, Nothing But Thieves and Riton & Kah-Lo all performing. That’s it for internationals, but the festival still boasts and incredible slew of locals and Australian talent—ranging from guitar slinging rock to deep bass grooves.
