Featuring more local artists than ever before in the festival’s 13 year history, Southbound Festival is celebrating by announcing bucketloads of talented locals before releasing the full line up set to hit the stage between the 27th and 29th of December 2016. For Western Australians, the festive holiday period is synonymous with the South West corner of our fair state. As such, Southbound organisers have locked in the period between Christmas and New Years as the new dates of the festival for 2016 and in years to come. The Southbound team are calling out to their loyal supporters to help to rebuild and improve the event due to the subsequent impact of January’s fires and to continue the festival legacy and its future with these new dates.

Locals taking to the stage at Southbound 2016 will be:

San Cisco // Slumberjack // Tired Lion //  Koi Child // HWLS // 
Mosquito Coast // Kučka // Lilt // Mathas // Hideous Sun Demon
 // Grrl Pal // Elk Road // Time Pilot

Also joining WA’s finest will be:

The rebuilding process from the devastating fires that led to the cancellation of the January 2016 festival continue to be a costly exercise in both time and money.  After raising over $150,000 towards the appeal with the Southbound Benefit Concert held just days after the January cancellation, the festival will continue to undertake fundraising initiatives leading up to the December event, including collection options made on ground across the three day festival. More than ever, Southbound feels strongly connected to the South West and is developing programs and strategies to cement the synergy between the local community and the festival.
