This year, Dynamite Fest 3 is going back to its roots in Geelong, the hometown that birthed the explosive musical mayhem.

The lineup reads like a who’s who of the local underground scene, featuring the likes of Our Carlson, Daddy Issues, Glas Nost, Eyeroll, Sargent Baker, and a slew of other sonic rebels ready to set the stage ablaze. And let’s not forget the masterminds behind the fest, Tommy Dynamite & The Explosions, who promise to deliver a live show that’s nothing short of dynamic chaos.

Mark your calendars for the 26th of December, as Dynamite Fest 3 takes over The Barwon Club for what promises to be the venue’s last big bash of the year. This marks the first time Dynamite Fest has made its mark in Geelong, and it’s gearing up to be one for the books.

From 3 pm to 1 am, the Barwon Club will be a musical battleground, with bands tearing up the main stage and DJs taking control of the beer garden. Expect scathing political slacker punk, catchy schoolyard chants, and moments of cathartic rage that will leave you buzzing long after the last chord is struck.
