Wollongong’s only punk, metal and rock festival Hy-Fest drops its lineup for 2015

Returning for its fifth consecutive year, Wollongong’s only punk, metal and rock festival Hy-Fest has dropped a pretty huge lineup for 2015.

Hy Fest lineup

Spearheaded by the trusty folk from Yours & Owls and Helter Smelter, the festival will take place at UOW Unibar on December 5th across two stages. Hy-Fest has a tradition of pulling out some of Australia’s best hard rock bands, and this year is no expception with The Meanies and The Hard Ons headlining the day.

The brainchild of Luke Armstrong, the festival is a celebration of local music. “We really wanted to bring some of these out-of-owners to Wollongong to destroy audiences, but the festival is also a chance to celebrate what’s happening in our own backyard,” says Armstrong. “There’s so much going on in hard music both locally and at a national level and this is a perfect way to showcase that.”
