Following a huge year in 2017 which saw Hermitude, RÜFÜS, Dune Rats, DMA’s, Skegss, and many more on the lineup, Mountain Sounds Festival have today revealed the first lineup for their 2018 event.

Of course, it wouldn’t be an Aussie festival lineup without the gig in question deciding to do things a little differently. In the case of Mountain Sounds Festival, well, they’re keeping a few secrets, namely who the festival headliner is, but considering the rest of the lineup, it’s going to be a big one.

In terms of bands that are actually announced, Mountain Sounds Festival is bringing out the big guns, with Grouplove, Hot Dub Time Machine, The Preatures, Gang Of Youths, Amy Shark, and Kirin J Callinan topping the lineup.

But there’s also plenty of other brilliant acts on board as well, including Alex The Astronaut, Ali Barter, The Creases, Tia Gostelow, and Pist Idiots, amongst a slew of other phenomenal artists too.

The best part of this lineup though is that there’s still plenty more to come, which will undoubtedly make Mountain Sounds Festival one of the best-looking lineups going around this festival season.

It all kicks off on Thursday, February 16th 2018, and runs until Saturday the 18th in the Mount Penang Parklands, in Kariong, NSW. If you’re looking for some brilliant tunes this summer in a gorgeously picturesque location, then you won’t need to look any further than Mountain Sounds Festival.

Pre-sale tickets are on sale now from the Mountain Sounds Festival website, with general public tickets on sale Thursday, September 28th.

The festival is set to release their second announcement on Tuesday, October 3rd. We could be finding out who the mystery headliner is then, but in the meantime, check out the actually-announced Gang Of Youths’ recent cover of The Middle East’s ‘Blood’ to get you in the mood for February.
