Southbound Festival

Once upon a time some nice folk packed up their van and drove through the thick city haze to the pristine paradise of the South West. They set up tents, threw down some tasty organic tucker and danced around while bands from lands afar made music upon the stage. So began The Southbound Festival!

Located in the beautiful South West town of Busselton, just a two and a half hour-ish drive south of Perth, Southbound continues to bring sizzling talent from overseas along with the most talented home-grown Australian artists to you in the form of one superb and sustainable festival. Punters are offered and urged to take in the whole experience by getting in touch with nature and camping at the festival site over the weekend, so as to not miss out on one second of the good times on offer.
