Epic tunes. Lush surrounds. Killer vibes. And a bloody big pineapple. You know it! Queensland’s legendary Big Pineapple Music Festival is back in 2018 and is ready to nourish your musical tastebuds with a lineup that’s juicier than ever!
Pineapple punters will be treated to an impressive collection of Australia talent for the sixth edition of the festival. From masters of the moshpit and head-banging heroes, to chicks with picks and electronic music architects, Woombye, QLD will be set to blow come May.

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any bigger, BPMF are stoked to announce that they’ll be expanding from four stages to five in 2018!
This year BPMF are changing up the way you arrive and depart from the festival. We want to make sure everyone gets to BPMF and leaves in the quickest and safest way possible. Our new Park & Ride system will aim to alleviate pressure on the roads and create a safer and more efficient transport system for all. This means there will be no vehicle drop offs allowed at the event. Instead, simply park your car or get dropped off at one of many locations around the Sunshine Coast and jump on a free bus to the festival. Buses will return to these locations after the event.
Keen to stay put? Grab a camping ticket! Not only will you score two nights accommodation in the lush Pineapple fields, you’ll be treated to local acts spinning vinyl and a licensed bar on the Friday night. Two nights of epic good times awaits!
If the outdoors isn’t your cup of tea, there’s a whole bunch of accommodation options available on the Sunshine Coast. Head to Visit Sunshine Coast to check out your options and book now so you don’t miss out!

After successfully showcasing the premier crop of hip hop talent in Australia from 2011, SPRUNG Festival unfortunately decided to close its gates in 2013.
Now, in 2017, SPRUNG Festival returns with its strongest and most diverse line up so far. The 18+ event will also be held at a smaller venue (4,000pax) than previous events, giving fans an exclusive and exciting festival experience up close and personal while still keeping the same exceptionally low price.
Drawing from talent all across Australia, and bringing together a smorgasbord of the best and most unique voices in the Hip Hop and Urban communities, the SPRUNG Festival line up for 2017 is:
ILLY ALLDAY A. B. ORIGINAL TKAY MAIDZA SPIT SYNDICATE PEZ IVAN OOZE B WISE MATHAS BIRDZ CODA CONDUCT CAITI BAKER MIDAS.GOLD TRAVY P CAMOUFLAGE ROSE JUNOR SARAH CONNOR JESSWAR KARNAGE N DARKNIS IIICONIC
Featuring 2012 headliner ILLY, as well as 2013 festival newcomer turned megastar ALLDAY, along with critically acclaimed A.B. ORIGINAL, international break out star TKAY MAIDZA, and ARIA Award Nominees and Aussie hip-hop favourites SPIT SYNDICATE (+ HEAPS more) the line-up for SPRUNG Festival 2017 is a collection of Australia’s most exciting and diverse voices.
SPRUNG Festival continues its tradition of creating a platform for new and upcoming acts to take the stage, as well as reflecting the new sounds coming out of Hip Hop in Australia. No longer just spitting rhymes over a beat track, SPRUNG Festival is excited to showcase artists diversifying the genre, such as JESSWAR, CAMOUFLAGE ROSE, CAITI BAKER, and MIDAS.GOLD, and bringing elements of electronic, funk, soul, RnB, blues, gospel, and even rock N roll to the mix.
Plucking artists from all corners of the country, SPRUNG Festival is the one and only premier Hip Hop Festival in Australia showcasing this exceptional calibre of artists in one location.
