Following a tumultuous couple of years for the team behind the beloved Wollongong music festival Yours and Owls, the live music crew is bringing the party to Berry over 2023's Easter long weekend with a brand-new festival titled Lazy Mountain. The one-day all-ages affair will be popping up at the Berry Showground on Saturday, April 8, with a stacked lineup of Australian favourites.

Topping the list of acts is acclaimed Sydney band Gang of Youths, fresh off their run of arena shows and self-curated festivals. The rockstars will bring their catalogue of hits and new album Angel in Realtime to the showgrounds alongside an indie rock-heavy program. Joining Gang of Youths will be Tash Sultana, Middle Kids, Slowly Slowly, Tyne-James Organ, Merci, Mercy and Aodhan.

Living up to its lazy name, the music festival is designed for those sick of running around expansive festival grounds trying to catch their favourite acts between frustrating set time clashes. All seven acts will appear back-to-back on the one stage, meaning that you won't miss your favourite Middle Kids song because you're at Tash Sultana's set.

Another enticing element of the new addition to New South Wales' collection of festivals is the location, set in the stunning surrounds of Berry on the NSW South Coast. Located two hours south of Sydney, the festival is a perfect excuse for a regional getaway across the long weekend.

The drawcards don't stop there, though. You can expect top-notch tipples and moreish snacks to enjoy between sets as well, with the team behind the South Coast Food and Wine Festival in charge of Lazy Mountain's food and drink lineup. The full culinary and arts program will be coming over the next few weeks.

While the event is all ages, anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Camping and glamping are available to book through the festival at the Riverside Campgrounds, or you can book a local hotel or Airbnb — including the Palm Springs-inspired Berry View Hotel.
