The 5 Best Aussie Music Festivals Still To Come in 2017

Better get that annual leave in!

The 5 Best Aussie Music Festivals Still To Come in 2017

It's been a HUGE Summer for artists like Cold Chisel, London Grammar and Steely Dan. Why? They've all braced the hot subtropical climates of our Aussie towns to hit the stages of our beloved Summer festivals.

Though as the temperature drops, we're reminded that the silly season is coming to a close and there's only a handful of gigs left in the guide!

Below we have listed what is still to come this festival season and exactly when and where you can catch your favourite Aussie & International acts!

A Day On The Green

When you gather some of the all-time greatest artists together at a vineyard it makes for an absolute cracker of a day on the green! With several shows and line-ups to choose from, you have to visit ADOTG at least once. I mean, come on, look at this line-up!

Splendour In The Grass

Australia's equivalent of Coachella, Splendour In The Grass is one of the most highly anticipated festivals of the year. Spanning over three days with a string of huge acts and a massive campsite, the Byron based festival is considered the country's largest Winter music festival and a can't miss event!

Where: North Byron Parklands

When: Friday 21st - Sunday 23rd July 2017

Who: In the past we've seen big names like Outkast, Coldplay, Arctic Monkey and The Strokes headlining, but SITG hasn't officially released their line-up yet. So until an announcement has been made, we can only keep our fingers crossed that this year is going to be another all-time roster! Artists who don't have any tour commitments on that weekend include Lorde, The XX and Queens Of The Stone Age  - we can only hope!
