Frothing yet? Is this enoughto get the gang back together for a day-long sesh in the sun? Head HERE to register for the SCENE & HEARD presale before 5pm Tuesday 17 July.


Crack out that old band shirt, dust off those Doc Martens and bust open that ancient box of glowsticks. It doesn’t matter which scene you were in or which scene you thought you were in, SCENE & HEARD is here for you.SCENE & HEARD is where you belong.

Say hello to a brand-new festival that isn’t just a line-up but an immersive journey back to when Spotify didn’t exist, and that 1999 triple j Hottest 100 CD was the only thing repeating on the car stereo.

Strutting into Wickham Park, Newcastle on Sunday November 4, SCENE & HEARD brings together a boom box full of talent in its first year. a line-up designed to recreate moments in time. Those moments begin with The Living End. Forging a path like no other this legendary band of rockabilly heroes have conquered the globe countless times and return to headline the ultimate Sunday session with new album Wunderbar in tow.

Prep for a giant sing-a-long as one of the finest voices in Australia, Paul Dempsey cranks out classics like ‘Monsters’ and ‘Three Dimensions’ with Something for Kate making a welcome return to Newcastle. Absolute thumpers Spiderbait join the ranks too with must hear throwbacks like ‘Buy Me a Pony’, ‘Black Betty’ and ‘Calypso’.

Killing Heidi join the SCENE & HEARD pack following a stunning resurgence to celebrate 20 years since their inception. Also kicking off the main stage are Aussie indie mainstays Dallas Crane, Skunkhour and Front End Loader. And keeping everyone in line (or out of line) is the man, the legend that is Lindsay ‘The Doctor’ McDougall as master of ceremonies.

The late 90s and early 00s wasn’t all about rock though. There was a parallel universe running alongside. Enter pioneers of the Aussie millennial electro-pop scene Sneaky Sound System with smash hits ‘UFO’, ‘Pictures’ and ‘I Love It’. If that’s not enough temptation to bring out the fluoro again SCENE & HEARD wholly encourages ‘personal leave’ days with the ‘Don’t Come Monday’ Stage. A trio of Aussie club legends Kid Kenobi, Groove Terminator and Goodwill bring their beats to a dedicated space for partying as hard as you did the week the Ministry of Sound Annual 2002 was released. Still nervous about getting home in time for a good night’s sleep on a ‘school night’? Don’t worry it all wraps at 9pm.

SCENE & HEARD is creating more than a festival. It’s creating a connection to a time. A time before selfies when it didn’t matter how many ‘likes’ you had. It’s about swapping virtual likes for like-minded individuals and exchanging stories about ‘that time when…’

Remember that time when everyone used to go lapping on Wharf Road and then park up? Reminisce withSCENE & HEARD’s classic car display. Remember heading to the Newcastle Rock Shop to spend hours trawling through the latest releases? Relive with SCENE & HEARD’s vintage vinyl fair and rock’n‘roll markets.

The best Sunday sesh ever needs the best Sunday spread ever and SCENE & HEARD delivers. Sample small batch craft brews and premium suds. Knock back bespoke cocktails and indulge in the best food trucks eats from across Sydney and beyond.

Presale starts 9am Wednesday 18 July
General public on sale 9am Thursday 19 July.
