This August, Jindabyne will yet again be host to some of the hottest Australian and international artists known to human or yeti, with dates running from Friday 30th to Saturday the 31st of August. The pristine shores of Lake Jindabyne at the base of the Thredbo and Perisher alpine resorts will be transformed into the home of one of the coolest festivals of the year. Literally.

Snowtunes has made a name for itself as one of the most picturesque and exciting festivals out now, offering up the rare opportunity to listen to all of your favourite national and international acts while also being able to hit the slopes as well. Whereas most festivals capitalise on Australia’s incredible summers, Snowtunes switches up the game by presenting the perfect winter alternative to the festival scene, and what’s better is tickets won’t set you back at all. Scenic snow setting for a sweet price, and just think of the photo opportunities that will present themselves.

In addition to the string of incredible acts that will be performing, the festival will also be hosting the biggest off-mountain skiing and snowboarding competition, Rail Jam. With 270 cubic metres of snow, four stellar rail features and 40 of Australia’s best in the competition for a cash prize of $20,000, the event is sure to be unmissable. Competing in The KFC Rail Jam will be Australia’s biggest names in Rail Riding, from Jye Kearney to Andy James and even local pros like Georgia Austin.

To get you prepared for the coolest festival in the Southern Hemisphere, we spoke to the incredibly talented highlight of this years Snowtunes, Vera Blue, who alongside The Presets and The Rubens, will be headlining this year’s show. And the frosty fun doesn’t end there, with announced artists such as Lime Cordiale, Oriental Cravings, and so many more, who are sure to bring the heat to this snowy venue.

Q&A with Vera Blue

How do you feel about being one of the headline acts for Snowtunes 2019?

I’m so excited!!! I’ve known about the festival for a while so it’s really cool that I get to play it as a headline act.

Having performed at Lollapalooza and Splendour in the Grass, do you still get nervous for performances like this?

Yes of course! No matter how big or small the crowd or kind of show, I still get very nervous! But nerves are good!

What is your personal opinion on cold weather?

I’m not a huge fan of the cold, but if I’m all rugged up in fur and have a hot chocolate in my hand then I’m happy!

Which song of yours do you feel perfectly fits the snowy landscapes of Snowtunes?

Regular Touch! As I was given the incredible opportunity to dance around in the snow in New Zealand for the film clip! It was so special… and freezing!

With ‘The Way That You Love Me’ being such an incredible release, can we expect a new project sometime soon?

Definitely working on some new music! I’m excited for what is to come and can’t wait to share it with everyone!

Is there anyone on the Snowtunes 2019 lineup that you’re excited to see?

I’m a huge fan of Touch Sensitive! So I’ll be looking forward to his set!

What is your all-time favourite cold-weather tune?

‘Material Girl’ by Madonna. If I’m cold, it makes me want to dance to warm up!
