Wollongong’s Yours & Owls Festival has announced the lineup for its 2023 event, which will take place over the weekend of Saturday, 14th and Sunday, 15th October at its new home, the University of Wollongong. Leading the lineup are American rappers Earl Sweatshirt and Lil Tjay, plus British singer Bakar.

Other international highlights on the bill include American punk rock veterans Descendents, trap-jazz fusion luminary Masego, New Zealand duo Broods, indie-pop outfit Peach Pit and Hobo Johnson. Big local names include producer Golden Features (who recently announced his forthcoming second album), hip-hop trio Hilltop Hoods, homegrown favourite Chet Faker, Meg Mac, Ocean Alley, Safia and Vera Blue.

Further down the bill, you’ve got rockers Angel Du$t, viral Canadian singer-songwriter Ekkstacy and British indie band Sorry. The lineup also features the likes of Oliver Tree, Wallice, Fazerdaze, Forest Claudette, Royel Otis, RVG, Pacific Avenue, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers and plenty more.

See the full lineup below. Tickets will go on sale next Thursday, 29th June at 8am AEST via Moshtix. There’s a pre-sale beginning a day earlier on Wednesday, 28th June, which you can register for here. There are both general tickets and VIP packages.

Last month, Yours & Owls organisers Ben Tillman, Adam Smith and Baluun Jones announced they had inked a three-year partnership with the University of Wollongong for the university to host the event. As part of the deal, the Yours & Owls team will take over the UOW campus for the festival, with the university’s grounds, ovals and laneways being utilised.

“We are delighted to be returning home to UOW to present Yours and Owls within the campus grounds,” Tillman said in a statement at the time. “We are excited to welcome patrons to experience the festival in the space where the initial idea was hatched all those years ago. Our team have been busy creating ways to bring the multitude of spaces available to us alive across the campus.”

The relocation comes after last year’s edition of Yours & Owls was cancelled just days before it was due to begin as a result of extreme flooding, with the former Stuart Park site unable to be used. The festival last took place in 2020.
