Australia’s only snow music festival, Snowtunes, is back for its third instalment in 2017 from 1-2 September, with this year’s edition boasting its biggest and best line-up yet.
Around 4000 people turned out for the festival in 2016, and the addition of both a second stage and an extra night is sure to even draw more punters this year.
The typical Australian festival sees hordes of attendees cooking in near 40-degree heat, over an entire day and night of performing artists. Snowtunes likes to do things a little differently – the 2017 instalment will again be hosted at the Jindabyne Open Air Stage, next to picturesque Lake Jindabyne, right in the heart of the Snowy Mountains.
To accommodate this year’s massive line-up, the event will be spread across two nights and two stages, meaning you can hit the slopes during the day and party on through the night!
Once again, Snowtunes has delivered a diverse range of artists guaranteed to get your feet moving. Friday night’s bill includes France’s Klingande, as well as Australian favourites Safia, Boo Seeka, Paces, Northeast Party House and more. On Saturday, you can catch festival heavyweights like Gang of Youths, LDRU, Nina Las Vegas, and Tkay Maidza. The roster also features some up-and-comers currently making waves in the Australian music scene, like Ruby Fields, Skeggs, and Trophy Eyes.
For those who are tired of wasting time waiting in lines for food or a drink, Snowtunes is implementing a cashless system, where your festival wristband will double as a tap-and-go card. Simply load up your wristband at one of the currency stands, and you’re good to go! If you have any cash left on the wristband after the festival, you can have the amount refunded to your bank account through the Snowtunes website.
Tickets for Snowtunes are onto its third and final release but are still available at a very reasonable $159+bf for both night’s festivities. If you can only get down for either the Friday or Saturday, you can purchase a single-day pass for just $99.
Snowtunes has partnered with Thredbo ski resort to bring you a range of packages that include accommodation, lift passes, and ski hire, but get in quick as these spots are limited.
The last word from the organisers was that there are just over 400 tickets left for this year’s event, so head to http://www.snowtunes.com.au/tickets/ if you don’t want to miss out.
Strapped for cash? Head on over to the Snowtunes Facebook page. The person to come up with the best Snowtunes-related rap will win Snowtunes tickets, two nights accommodation, ski hire, and lift passes for them and three mates, valued at over $2000!
The winner will be announced Friday 25 August.
