Fairgrounds Festival Announces 2018 Lineup

Update 01/11 1.30pm: The second, and final, artist lineup has been revealed for the amazing Fairgrounds Festival. Joining the fun is The Smith Street Band’s Wil Wagner as well as TOTTY, Fascinator, Pist Idiots and more. Set times have also been unveiled, which you can find HERE.

Original Story: Fairgrounds continues to be one of Australia’s most diverse and dynamic festivals and this year is no different. For their 2018 lineup, they’ve gone above and beyond snagging the best acts both nationally and internationally.

Leading the pack is two of Australia’s biggest exports, Vance Joy and Courtney Barnett. They’ll be taking time out of their incredibly busy worldwide touring schedule to play exclusive festival sets. Not to mention Billy Bragg and The Breeders—who were both recently announced on the Meredith Music Festival lineup—are performing.

Also making the trip for the two-day event is POND, Winston Surfshit, Body Type, Oh Pep!, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Sampa the Great, Waxahatchee and many more.

Fairgrounds Festival is back in Berry at the Berry Showgrounds on Friday 30 November and Saturday 1 December. Continue to keep busy aside from the music with artisan food and wine stalls, a swimming pool, record fair, markets and beer and cider catering by Young Henry’s.

Tickets are on sale right now with a bunch of different options available—including single day and camping passes. Early bird tickets have already run out the door so best not sit on them too long. Get all the information HERE.
