Fairgrounds Festival 2019
There’s less than 8 weeks to go until Fairgrounds Festival returns for its momentous fifth year in Berry NSW, just a little south of Sydney. The perfect musical and culinary retreat to start your summer, the festival has announced a host of international and local additions that will join the stacked line-up.

YOUNG HENRYS presents THE PINHEADS
They join an already stacked line-up including former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, DMA’S, Dope Lemon, Meg Mac, Kasey Chambers, Julia Jacklin, The Lemonheads and more.
With no hype machine, singer-songwriter Gerry Cinnamon has achieved record breaking success and cemented his status as Scotland’s most successful independent artist and a cult hero force to be reckoned with.
A true story teller, Cinnamon’s music crosses generations in a way that only a handful of artists can. His debut album ‘Erratic Cinematic’ rocketed to the top of the charts on release and again after massive performances at this year’s Glastonbury and a co-headlining spot at TRNSMT.
Visiting Australia for the first-time, Cinnamon will take leave from supporting Liam Gallagher on his national Champagne Supernova rollercoaster to head to Berry, giving Fairgrounds a taste of his deep Glaswegian brogue and inimitable live show.
Young Henrys Secret Act is revealed… Wollongong band The Pinheads reside within a stylistic purgatory – too weird for punk, too free-form for garage rock, too genre-defiant for rock & roll. With their second album ‘Is This Real’ on the set list and countless live shows behind them, you can join The Pinheads on their path across the music spectrum at Fairgrounds 2019!
Fairgrounds is also proud to welcome a pair of hometown heroes to its intimate Windmill Stage. Singer-songwriter and Berry-local Lenka, formerly of the band Decoder Ring, has been releasing solo albums and touring worldwide for the last decade. You might have heard her music in films such as Somersault, Moneyball and Easy A, and TV shows like Ugly Betty and Grey’s Anatomy to name a few. Comedian Billy Crystal even sang her song at the 2012 Oscars. She’s played shows across America, China, the UK and Australia. Next stop, a home town set at Fairgrounds 2019!
Electric Ginger is singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Greg Townley. Based in Jaspers Brush NSW, his sassy synth stylings, cheeky electro bangers and guitar infused nineties pop have made him a thing of South Coast legend. If Moby and Magnum PI had a love child, it would be Electric Ginger.
They’ll be joined by Sydney troubadour Andy Golledge, the ethereal vocals of Annie Hamilton, and the unique take on Australian lives and landscape of Adam Gibson and The Aerial Maps.
As well as the best music festival under the South Coast sun, Fairgrounds also offers the perfect opportunity for a getaway with you and your crew – however big or small.
Little Fairgrounds, a festival within a festival designed especially for music-loving adults and their tiny tribe. It’s filled to the brim with epic workshops, amazing activities, heaps of games and, of course, music! Taking it up a notch this year, our fluffy punk rock friends Bunny Racket will return to the Little Fairgrounds stage as well as the 60s cartoon pop stylings of ABC Kids’ newest superstars The Sticker Club.
When it’s time to hit the hay, there’s Rivercamp,
The best bit? Rivercamp is a short five-minute ride from the festival and is nestled on a scenic woodland riverbank, so dive in and cool off before jumping on the complimentary shuttle bus to Fairgrounds Festival.
Lied about being the outdoor type? Berry and her surrounds provide plenty of holiday-worthy options, from cabins in Gerringong to beach shacks in Shoalhaven. Your transport to Fairgrounds is sorted, with shuttles running from a bunch of different locations. Head to our website for more info!
See in the first days of summer in beautiful Berry, with your crew and an incredible lineup of artists!
