MTV Beats and Eats 

This big ol' party in The Gong will satisfy both your belly and soul.

Now in it's third year, MTV Beats & Eats returns November 18 to take over Wollongong's Stuart Park. Just steps from North Wollongong beach, the festival brings live music and food lovers together for one big ol' party that will satisfy both your belly and your soul. Themed 'Space Fantasy', the festival encourages attendees to come in fancy dress as whatever their space fantasy may be. Astronauts, martians, space cowboys, alien unicorns — whichever costume you choose, you could win $2,000 for best dressed, $1,000 for second and $500 for third best dressed. Plus you'll look awesome.

With past acts including Savage, PACES, Tigerlily and DJ Steve Aoki, you can expect an even bigger roster of local and international acts this year. Plus, in between sets, fill up on a range of eats from food vendors from the region, along with a few Sydney imports expected to dish out some top-notch barbecue, burgers and pizzas.

And, though you probably don't need another excuse to get a ticket, your attendance will also go towards a good cause. With every ticket sold, MTV Australia will donate $1 to headspace, the national youth mental health foundation.
