The Strawberry Fields Festival will bring an array of international and home-grown artists to the bush from November 17 to 19 this year.
Held on the banks of the Murray River near Tocumwal, the festival is an annual celebration of art, sound and creative expression which brings a diverse selection of electronic music to Australia.
Strawberry Fields’ first round music line-up includes some of the finest talent all the way from the United States, including the psychedelic Aurora Halal and DJ Bone.
Also performing at this year’s event is Australia’s own Sampa the Great, Total Giovanni and international hip-hop party DJ, YO! MAFIA.
This year the festival will also welcome ARIA Hall of Fame inductee Yothu Yindi, a ‘‘must see’’ according to Strawberry Fields Festival director Tara Benney.
‘‘This will be the first time the iconic Indigenous band will be back together, which is quite special,’’ Ms Benney said.
‘‘Another change this year is we’ll be hosting a community event at the festival site before the gates open.
‘‘Locals who might not want to purchase a ticket can come and check it out, have a look at the art and stages, and get a feel for Strawberry Fields — stay tuned for more details,’’ she said.
Ms Benney said festival attendees will also experience four major music areas, each of which will showcase its own distinct personality — expressed in both decor and musical offerings — along with a series of themed camps.
‘‘Locals who are planning to attend can purchase half price tickets,’’ Ms Benney said.
‘‘There will be a diverse range of art and music, so if you’re interested in buying tickets, get in soon.’’
More international and local artists are to be announced as part of the line-up in the coming months.
