Delectable eats will be in abundance at the event as we transform a large part of the site into an oasis where all our festivalgoers will be able hydrate, rest and re-charge! Indulge in an array of beverages, alluring eats and sweet treats! 

This year's line up captures a colourful array of artists which draws on our country's rich and diverse talent with something for everyone - from country music to hip hop and plenty of good bits in between!

We're bringing out true blue Aussie country music legend John Williamson, the 14 piece jazz experience that is The Cat Empire to get you jumping, crowd favourites British India will be banging out their rock ballads while New Zealand hip hop will be represented by Savage and Che-Fu, Sid Diamond & DJ Tiklez plus our own homegrown hip hop hero Drapht bringing the lyrical heat to the stage!

The electronic dance music artists have been tastefully selected to compliment the already stellar lineup and provide an intelligent smorgasbord including Art vs Science, Potbelleez, plus DJs KLP (Triple J), Mashed n Kutcher, Yolanda Be Cool, Some Blonde, Kate Foxx and long-time Karratha favourite Kid Kenobi providing a delectable array of beats and bass to ensure no punter is left standing still!

The result; a festival lineup unlike any other the Pilbara has ever seen!
