The last pieces of the puzzle have fallen into place. It’s our 5th anniversary and our already exciting lineup just got bigger! The latest signed artists in the latest lineup are: THE SEX PISTOLS in the form of Glen Matlock who was the bass guitarist in the original line up of the U.K punk rock band. Matlock is also responsible for writing most of the bands hit songs.

THE BABY ANIMALS who are behind some of Australia’s most loved songs including ‘One Word’, ‘Early Warning’ and ‘Rush You’ are going to rock the stage and have the whole crowd singing along. SNEAKY SOUND SYSTEM the Australian dance music group with a style all their own will add an electric atmosphere and get everyone on their toes with their songs ‘UFO’, ‘I love it’ and 'Pictures'. MONSTERS OF ROCK will be playing brand new songs mixed with “hits and classics” from their extensive catalogues from their legendary Screaming Jets, Rose Tattoo, Faceplant and Billy Thorpe.  It’s almost impossible to imagine the depth and wealth of adventure ( and indeed Shenanigans ) which they have experienced.

Add these to the already stellar lineup on the following page, combined with emerging artists from all over the country from our Passport to Airlie Battle of the Bands competition and it makes for a huge weekend of spectacular entertainment by the ocean front in beautiful down town Airlie Beach. Don’t miss out as capacity is limited.  

Together with the First Artist Line-up announcement...this year's festival is sure to one to remember.
