Joining the Hoods is global superstar, TONES AND I, fresh from her European and US tour with Macklemore and Imagine Dragons. Tones will be performing hits from her #1 debut album, Welcome to the Madhouse which features her global smash hit, Dance Monkey along with new singles, Charlie and Chant. From busking in Byron Bay to international stardom, her performance at VANFEST will be one of her first back in Australia this year.

I am coming back from the European festival season, I’m ready to pick up from where I left off there and bring that same energy home to our own festivals, which is going to be incredibly special,” said TONES AND I.


The packed two-day event will also see live performances from multiple ARIA Award-winning artists and festival favourites including TASH SULTANA, SIX60, MASKED WOLF, THE PRESETS, ILLY, LDRU, HOCKEY DAD, MASHD N KUTCHER and more.

The boutique regional festival has been a favourite on the summer calendar, renowned for bringing quality entertainment to regional NSW for the past eight years.
