Feel like celebrating the greatness of our nation with a bang this week? Goat Island Sounds returns to the iconic Sydney Harbour National Park on 26 January 2017 with a huge line up and a magical harbour backdrop to countdown triple j’s Hottest 100. The boutique festival, hosted by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, will see Sydney Harbour’s Goat Island transformed into an island festival utopia where guests will party with some of Australia’s rising stars of electronica across two breathtaking stages.
After a massive year, Splendour in the Grass favourite Ngaiire’s headlining performance at Goat Island Sounds is one not to be missed. Nina Las Vegas is a club and festival favourite both here and abroad, having supported the likes of Pharrell Williams and Mark Ronson on an international scale. She is guaranteed to light up the Quarry Stage.
It’s been a huge year for Aussie electronic producers, and Goat Island Sounds is delivering the goods right to your doorstep! Basenji has been making noise, both at home and internationally and will be turning heads as he takes to the Quarry Stage.
Also featured are DJ, producer and the winner of triple j’s Unearthed 2016 National Indigenous Music Awards (NIMA) contest Kuren, FBi radio favourite Adi Toohey bringing his unique style of house with flavours of disco, funk and soul, and former host of Arvos and Sunsets on FBi Radio Ariane, delivering her trademark party tracks to keep you dancing all day!
Guests looking for a chill vibe can also hang out at The Green with some garden games, tuning in to see if their song has made the triple j Hottest 100 cut, or grab some eats from local faves, Butter, Thievery and the Mountain Goat Bar. With an island vibe, the hottest tunes and a killer view, Goat Island Sounds is the perfect event to enjoy amongst mates.
