Hilltop Hoods, Benee, and Violent Soho amongst impressive lineup for Yours & Owls 2022

Did somebody say Yours & Owls 2022 lineup drop? Yes, yes we did! It’s here, and it’s a big one – featuring Hilltop Hoods, Benee, Violent Soho, and about 100 more artists.

We’ve all gone a long time without music festivals – much longer than should ever be humanely acceptable. But everything seems to be coming up Milhouse, and we’re here with some very exciting festy news: the Yours & Owls 2022 lineup has just dropped!

Hilltop Hoods, Benee, Bliss & Eso, Flight Facilities, The Jungle Giants, Peking Duk, and Violent Soho are headlining amongst many other extraordinary Aussie and Kiwi live acts that will take the stages at Wollongong’s Stuart Park over April 2nd and 3rd.

Yours & Owls started as a quaint coffee shop in Wollongong’s CBD in 2010, became a locals favourite restaurant and gallery space, evolved into a hugely popular music venue, and has since shifted into a series of nationally loved projects including pop-up gigs, a record label, and a music festival. It’s a rich history steeped in the heart of Wollongong.

Original founders Ben Tillman, Balunn Jones, and Adam Smith, simply wanted good coffee in their hometown, but managed to start a project that would soon become one of Australia’s most beloved festivals.

In 2021, Yours & Owls was one of the very few festivals that actually took place. After 2020’s write-off, 2021 was looking pretty bleak as well, and most events throughout the year were cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Yours & Owls snuck through, and they were able to pull it off – hosting a music festival in the middle of a global pandemic.

Next year’s line-up is full of Aussie indie faves the likes of Ruby Fields, San Cisco, and Jack River, Sydney local legends such as Caitlin Harnett & The Pony Boys, and Bored Shorts, mid-2000s icons Faker, and everything in between.
