If you live on the fringes of Sydney it can sometimes feel like all the fun stuff is just out of reach — programmed for a weeknight after the last train home has left the station. That sense of isolation can mean that young music fans can miss out on seeing their favourite acts live on stage, even the ones that grew up around the corner who've gone on to bigger (not better) crowds in the big smoke.

Founder of I OH YOU

Here to bridge that gap is record label founder Johann Ponniah (pictured above), who set up I OH YOU. He grew up in Campbelltown and decided to create a music festival at Campbelltown Athletics Centre (a running track that locals would know from their school athletics carnivals) to bring some of those local acts back to a big stage in the Macarthur region.

Local boys The Rubens, who grew up down the road in Menangle, are headlining the festival alongside Melbourne rapper Illy. There'll be two stages with genres that span hip hop to dance-punk. From 1–10pm you can hear from Alex the Astronaut, Mallrat, Trophy Eyes, WAAX, GRAACE, Clypso, Lex Deluxe and DJ sets from DZ Deathrays and Northeast Party House.

The event is open to ages 15+, and as it's the first of its kind there's the hope that it'll attract more and more big-named artists in years to come.
