The Yours and Owls Festival, also known as the Wollongong Festival, is a music festival held in Stuart Park Wollongong in September each year.
Featuring a number of local and international artists, Yours and Owls Festival is a popular event with thousands travelling 1.5 hours south of Sydney just to attend.
In previous years, artists have included The Presets, Illy, At The Drive In and the line-up is typically announced in May each year. The festival is held at Stuart Park which is located right on the coast. The festival is held on an open green space with plenty of room to sit and relax as you enjoy the music, or to get right up the front and dance!
The event is strictly over 18’s as there is alcohol served at the festival. Note that chairs, glassware, eskies and umbrellas are not permitted inside the venue.
Many people choose to camp at the festival as there is a campsite located at Wollongong Surf Leisure Resort, an approximate 10-minute walk, or 2 minutes using the festival shuttle bus. Each camping ticket provides accommodation for one person on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. Camping check in is between 12pm-11pm Friday and from 8am Saturday. Check out is between 8am-11am Monday.
If driving, parking is limited to metred street parking out the front, so it is best to take public transport. The closest train station is North Wollongong. A shuttle bus will run between North Wollongong Train Station and the festival site.
