Fairgrounds Festival drops 2018 lineup

From its charming Berry Showground home and shady riverbank campground, to the picnic rug jigsaws on lush lawns, super sweet swimming pool and carefully crafted culinary delights.
Fairgrounds Festival is back in Berry on Friday 30 November and Saturday 1 December and has handpicked a distinctive lineup of indie rock icons, outspoken folk punk legends and Unearthed sensations in what will make up your ultimate summer festival soundtrack.
Descending upon Berry for Fairgrounds Festival 2018 will be massive headliners Vance Joy, Courtney Barnett, Pond and Winston Surfshirt.
Joining these local luminaries, there will also be a host of acts from across the globe including British punk/poet Billy Bragg, seminal indie rock outfit The Breeders, thought-provoking Chicago emcee Saba, Philadelphia DIY favourite Waxahatchee and esoteric L.A. songwriter Kevin Morby.
What a lineup!
Located a mere two hours from Sydney, tucked between lush mountains and the glittering waters of the South Coast lies Fairgrounds Festival’s home of Berry. Taking place in the town’s enchanting showground, punters can explore Berry’s real-world charm and seriously quaint corners across the weekend.
Discovering the little wonders scattered throughout Fairgrounds is all part of the adventure. Have your togs handy for a refreshing dip in the pool, try your hand (or two) at tug-o-war and sack racing at Games on the Green, or wander over to the Market to score some one-off vintage wares or indulge in the best local produce. Avid audiophiles can get their fingers dusty unearthing forgotten and collectable vinyl treasures at The Record Fair too. There’s also a range of artisan food and wine, beer and cider by Young Henry’s and there’s even a bunch of kids entertainment. You beauty!
