In a year when everything has been pushed back by months, Yours & Owls have bucked the trend by announcing their mammoth 2021 lineup this morning.

Traditionally taking place across the October long weekend, last month saw Yours & Owls organisers reveal that their annual event would not take place in 2020 as originally planned, with their festivities instead pushed back until January of 2021.

Now, at a time when music fans feel almost used to hearing news of their favourite festivals cancelling forthcoming events, Yours & Owls have instead delivered what is likely set to be one of the biggest celebrations of local talent, with their 2021 lineup arriving this morning.

Headed up by the world-beating Tones And I, the lineup features a vast array of artists from both here and across the Tasman, with BENEE, Cosmo’s Midnight, Hockey Dad, Lime Cordiale, Pnau, Running Touch, and Winston Surfshirt joining the bill.

Check out a Spotify playlist of Yours & Owls 2021 artists:

While What So Not also makes his return to live performances, the full lineup also features the talents of Slowly Slowly, Children Collide, Stand Atlantic, George Alice, Adrian Eagle, Clowns, Private Function, The Grogans, Party Dozen, and countless more names.

Set to kick off at Wollongong’s Stuart Park across January 23rd and 24th, Yours & Owls is on track to serve up “an abundant medley of Australia and New Zealand’s finest fresh hitting the stage out of isolation”, as per a press release.

Tickets to next year’s even go on sale through Moshtix from 8:30am local time on Thursday, July 23rd, while a pre-sale kicks off 24 hours earlier, with registration for access open now.

While music-lovers are eager to return to the semblance of normalcy that a festival such as Yours & Owls promises, organisers note that they will be working with local health advisors until the gates open in order to ensure they are operating within the proper health guidelines required in January of 2021.
