The all-star hip hop event is going big for its comeback shindig this October

More Allday More Allday

All-star hip hop event Sprung Festival is making its eagerly awaited comeback this year, and organisers have today revealed the A-class list of talent they've gathered to help make it a party to remember.

The charge is led by alum acts Illy (2012) and Allday (2013) as well as nationally acclaimed acts A.B. Original, Tkay Maidza, Spit Syndicate, Pez, Ivan Ooze, B Wise, Mathas, Birdz and Coda Conduct, among a stack of other excellent talent.

Amid the roster, punters will be treated to a diversity of established and emergent hip hop styles, drawing on genres such as electronica, funk, soul, R&B, blues, gospel and rock to create a something-for-everyone smorgasbord of sound hitting the Gold Coast's Parkwood Precinct this October.

The event's comeback will fill a notable hole in the annual festival calendar, giving the nation's broad and burgeoning hip hop community dedicated room to show off its finest artists from all over the country. This is a party several years in the making, and the names revealed today will capably serve to make it more than worth the wait.

"We think 2017 is going to be an incredible year for Sprung and hip hop as a whole," organisers said in a recent statement. "Rest assured we are back for the long run and have some tricks up our sleeve for the years to come."

Sprung Festival returns on Saturday 28 October. Early-bird tickets will go on sale through the festival's website from this coming Monday, 21 October. General public passes follow from Thursday 24 October.
