Fairgrounds Festival is back in Berry on Friday 30 November and Saturday 1 December and has handpicked a distinctive lineup of indie rock icons, outspoken folk punk legends and Unearthed sensations in what will make up your ultimate summer festival soundtrack.
Joining local luminaries including Vance Joy, Courtney Barnett, Pond and Winston Surfshirt will be a host of the most exciting acts from across the globe. Packing their bags for the trip Down Under are pioneering British punk/poet Billy Bragg, seminal indie rock outfit The Breeders, thought-provoking Chicago emcee Saba, Philadelphia DIY favourite Waxahatchee and esoteric L.A. songwriter Kevin Morby.
A mere 2-hour meander from Sydney, tucked between lush mountains and the glittering waters of the South Coast lies Fairgrounds Festival's home of Berry. Taking place in the town's enchanting showground, punters can explore Berry's real-world charm and seriously quaint corners across the weekend.
Discovering the little wonders scattered throughout Fairgrounds is all part of the adventure. Have your togs handy for a refreshing dip in the pool, try your hand (or two) at tug-o-war and sack racing at Games on the Green, or wander over to the Market to score some one-off vintage wares or indulge in the best local produce. Avid audiophiles can get their fingers dusty unearthing forgotten and collectable vinyl treasures at The Record Fair too.
Fairgrounds also has the littlest festival fiends covered! Little Fairgrounds is a festival within a festival designed just for baby Barnett's and Winston wannabes. There are lessons to be learnt at Rock School, captivating stage performances, stories from our friends, craft activities and big things to bounce on! The adults are covered too, with a parents' room and child minding on offer.
And when it's time to retreat there's Rivercamp, Fairgrounds' official campsite. Perfect for groups of friends, families and everyone in between, it includes a range of camping options from pitch-your own (General Admission), pre-assembled tent & bedding packages, or a luxury bell tent experience complete with mattresses, goose down pillows and quilts, rugs & lanterns. Posh!
Feeling a little dusty from the night before? Rivercamp is nestled on a scenic woodland riverbank, so jump in and cool off. BYO inflatable swan! Spend your nights under the stars, but only a five-minute complimentary shuttle ride away from Fairgrounds.
For those looking for a home away from home, Berry and her surrounds provide plenty of holiday-worthy options, from cabins in Gerringong to beach shacks in Shoalhaven.
