In February 2019, the Central Coast's Mountain Sounds heads into its fifth incarnation, after selling out four years in a row. Headlining the music program are Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett, Sydney-based electronica act What So Not and folk siblings Angus and Julia Stone, followed by a plethora of 2018's favourite acts, including Thundamentals, Middle Kids, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and Stella Donnelly.
Despite its popularity, Mountain Sounds has stuck to its ethical guns. The festival is all about transporting you to another world, where music, art, culture, nature and sustainability rule. In between checking out the music, immerse yourself in installations, jump rope, grab a paint brush and wander around pretty, pretty Mount Penang Gardens. If you can manage it, wake up early for sunrise (or stay up all night). A cornucopia of tasty food and drinks will keep you fuelled all weekend long.
