Yours & Owls Music Festival is celebrating its tenth birthday this year, but the good news comes with a touch of bad: the main festival won’t be going ahead on its usual October/November dates and has been moved to early 2025.

In a statement, organisers revealed that due to headliner availability, Yours & Owls has been slightly delayed, but more details are coming soon. The statement reads:

Yours and Owls Festival has hit double digits; that’s right, we’re growing up!

We are pulling out all the stops to throw a huge party to celebrate! Due to headliner avails, the main event is moving into early 2025 (details will be announced real soon), but we will stop at nothing to ensure the Logistics Grinch doesn’t steal Gong Christmas (also, as you guys know, we love any excuse to throw a party), so, welcome our 10th Birthday Pre-Party on October 12th!

The festival’s 10th Birthday Pre-Party has locked in some brilliant names, including masked house artist Golden Features, Peking Duk, Alice Ivy, DJ Anna Lunoe, electronic pop singer CXLOE, Hellcat Speedracer, Ninajirachi, and Running Touch. The celebrations will take place at the University of Wollongong Gardens.

Pre-sale tickets to Yours & Owls’ 10th Birthday Pre-Party go on sale tomorrow (10 July) at 8:30 am AEST, followed by the general sale at 8:30 am AEST on Thursday, 11 July. Here, you can find more ticketing details—including the pre-sale and first and second ticket release prices.

The 2023 edition of Yours & Owls locked in 110 artists who performed across five stages.
