The Sunshine Coast's biggest independent music festival has announced its next line-up.
2013 saw people from all around the nation flock to one of Australia's most recognisable icons for The Big Pineapple Music Festival, as the likes of Birds Of Tokyo, British India and Grinspoon played to a sold out crowd of 12,000 (unlucky patrons who missed out on tickets had to listen in from the car park).
Next year, the usually quiet town of Nambour will host a much bigger line-up, satisfying all tastes from hip hop, rock, indie, roots, EDM and blues. The capacity's gotten a little bigger, too (the site can now hold 13,000 people across three stages), with camping grounds for 2,500 and parking for 2,400, all surrounded by lush rainforest.
There'll also be stalls, food vendors, bars, skateboarding and wakeboarding demos, vintage cars, amusements and a whole lot more.
This year's bill reads as follows:
Bliss N Eso
The Living End
Art Vs Science
Alison Wonderland (DJ Set)
Hat Fitz & Cara
Mr Hill & Rahjconkas
Band Of Frequencies
Total Eclipse (USA)
The Tea Society
Big Pineapple Music Festival expects to sell out again this year, with more acts — including another headliner — to come. The event takes place on Saturday May 17; tickets go on sale from 9am on Monday December 9 from bigpineapplemusicfestival.com.
