If you're already planning summer road trips, here's one that gives you music and beaches. Happening in the pretty North Coastal twin towns of Forster-Tuncurry on Saturday, January 12, Grow Your Own will bring together a stack of Aussie talent.

Leading the program are Sydney rockers DMA's and The Preatures, alongside Hockey Dad, who hail from Windang, just south of Wollongong. Also travelling from down south is Totty, who recently signed to the Dune Rats label, while singer-songwriter Mallrat will come down from Brissie to perform a set from her debut EP, In The Sky.

Look out, too, for Jack River (aka Forster local Holly Rankin) who is not only performing, but running the event as festival director. "We're deeply excited to present Grow Your Own's biggest line up yet, with acts coming from all over the country as well as many from our own backyard," she said. "Our homegrown ethos runs through every cell of the festival, right down to the fences and the food."

In between getting down to the music, check out a myriad of art installations, bars and offerings from local growers and producers. Tickets go on sale this week and come in at under $100.
