Organisers, artists and punters were heartbroken when devastating bushfires forced the January cancellation of the 12th annual Southbound Festival. But all hope is not lost – 2016 will still see a Southbound Festival.

Sunset Events have announced the event, for 2016 and in the years to come, will be moved to the new dates of 27th – 29th of December (Yes! Another summer festival!).

They believe these new dates, between Christmas and New Years, will reduce the risk of future cancellations and work better with police resourcing. 

After donating over $150, 000 from the Southbound Benefit Concert, the Southbound team continue to raise money for Yarloop and the surrounding areas affected by the fire.

The first artist lineup for the new 2016 event will be revealed in the coming winter months.

January 2016 ticket holders will be offered an exclusive pre-sale.

They hope fans will continue to support the festival’s legacy and get onboard with it’s new dates.
