In Australia's music festival scene, 2022 has been a year of big comebacks — and when December hits, Meredith will join the list. On hiatus since 2019 due to the pandemic, the beloved three-day BYO camping festival in central Victoria will finally return across Friday, December 9–Sunday, December 11. Obviously, it wouldn't be another stint with Aunty Meredith if there wasn't a killer lineup.

For its first fest in three years, Meredith will feature Canadian electronic producer Dan Snaith under both his guises — sitting at the top of the bill as Caribou, and also at the bottom of the list so far as Daphni. When you're not catching his sets, you can hit up the event's two big local headliners: Yothu Yindi and Courtney Barnett.

Also on the lineup: The Comet Is Coming, Dry Cleaning, Sharon Van Etten and Derrick Carter from the overseas roster, spanning everything from post-punk and jazz through to house. And, among the local favourites, Tkay Maidza sits alongside Tasman Keith, SHOUSE and Private Function.

The stacked lineup goes on — and, if you're wondering how you can see all of the above, and more, across one huge December weekend, Meredith tickets are still only available by entering the ballot. You can do so at online up until 10.29pm on Monday, August 22.

This year isn't just any old Meredith, either. It's the fest's 30th event, so prepare for quite the party in the Supernatural Amphitheatre.
