Southbound reveal the first act on their 2016 line-up

Hermitude have been announced as the first cab off the rank for this year’s Southbound Festival.

They’ll get to show off their new album Dark Night Sweet Light, which spawned singles The Buzz and Through the Roof, and new single Vibration.

Southbound will take place from December 27 – 29 in Busselton, WA. Punters who purchased tickets to last year’s festival – which was cancelled at the eleventh hour due to bushfires – will be able to buy tickets before anyone else at 9am on Wednesday July 20. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday July 22; two-day passes are priced at $160 and three-day passes at $205.

With Falls Festival heading west for the first time in 2016, their tradition of sharing acts with Southbound has come to an end. Watch Hermitude announce their place on the Southbound line-up below.
