Yours and Owls announces massive All Ages Festival Lineup – Uow Unihall, October 5
With winter ramping up you can’t help but long for those beautiful spring days sitting at Stuart Park, basking in the weekend long festivities of Yours & Owls Festival. For the kids out there contemplating fake ID’s to see what the fuss is all about, don’t worry – we got you!
Yours & Owls are throwing an all ages party on Saturday October 5 at UOW Uni Hall kicking off at 12pm, and have handselected some of the best Aussie talent from the line-up including Angie McMahon, Baker Boy, Eves Karydas, Kwame, Ruel and Skegss.
Tickets are limited so gather your mates and get in quick to secure your spot!
Without even so much as an EP to her name, Angie McMahon has been the exact opposite of a “Slow Mover” in the Australian music scene. She’s opened for the likes of Paul Kelly and Alanis Morrissette, scored over 15 million streams on Spotify alone and has already made major inroads internationally. 2019 sees McMahon release her long-awaited debut album, Salt – and we can’t wait to get a taste.
Since dropping the irresistible “Cloud 9” and “Marryuna” in 2017, Baker Boy has had all of Australia dancing to his beat. The fresh prince of Arnhem Land had a massive 2018, including shows with childhood heroes like Dizzee Rascal, Yothu Yindi and 50 Cent, as well as releasing killer singles like “Mr. La Di Da Di” and “Black Magic.” He then proceeded to kick off 2019 with a prime spot on the Laneway line-up and a groovy new tune, the aptly-titled “Cool as Hell.” What’s next for this multilingual legend? You’ll have to come along and see for yourself.
Eves Karydas has been on her best behaviour recently. The Brisbane electro-pop singer-songwriter dropped her debut album, Summerskin, in September of 2018. She’s also toured nationally in support of pop giants like Dua Lipa, Cub Sport and George Ezra, honing her stagecraft along the way. With a headlining tour of her own in the can from February, Karydas is certifiably festival-ready.
Here comes that boy Kwame, just off an extensive national jaunt with Peking Duk. The Western Sydney hip-hop star has been bubbling under for a while now, but he broke through in a major way in 2018 thanks to an all-killer EP in Endless Conversations and a show-stopping Kendrick Lamar cover on Triple J’s Like a Version. In 2019, there’s plenty more where that came from.
At the ripe old age of 16, Ruel is 2019’s global pop heartthrob with a homegrown back-story. A cult following has quickly escalated into one of the most dedicated fan-bases in the world, with the singer promptly selling out everywhere from New York City to the Sydney Opera House. That’s all on the back of one EP, too – imagine where this kid will go when his second one drops.
What kind of year has it been for Skegss since the release of their debut album, My Own Mess? One of sold-out shows in every city, two spots in the Triple J Hottest 100, a #2 debut on the ARIA album charts and en-masse sing-alongs at every festival under the sun. Skegss return to Wollongong as heroes – at least, bigger heroes than they already were. Welcome to the party.
