Sugar Mountain first lineup announcement!
Words by Emma Jones - Published on October 15, 2014
“HOLY SHIT,” sums up my not so eloquent reaction to the first announcement for the 2015 edition of Melbourne’s Sugar Mountain. Jam packed with stellar acts, this lineup is the curveball we’ve been waiting for!
Headlining the event is the one and only Nas who will be performing the iconic Illmatic in full. They’ve also recruited Body/Head, a joint project between Bill Nace and my spiritual queen, Kim Gordon, as well as ODESZA, Swans, Midnight Juggernauts, The 2 Bears and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.
Being held on January 24th, next year will also see the festival moving to it’s new home in the Victorian College of the Arts, in Southbank, and will feature FIVE stages (three outdoor, two indoor). A slew of visual artists will also be coming on board, as if there wasn’t enough already. Tickets go on sale on October 20, and are strictly capped at 5,500 patrons – so get in quick!
