Rolling Sets 2020
Call your crew, throw together your best festi-threads and wax your board – Coffs Harbour’s newest beachside festival is just around the corner and the perfect excuse to kick off your end-of-summer long weekend road trip.
Held on Saturday 25 January 2020, Rolling Sets will boast a local line-up of Australia’s most respected artists, along with an eclectic mix of homegrown foodies, peddlers, skaters, makers, musos and sponsors. Coffs Harbour Amphitheatre will play host to the event, leaving festival-goers dancing to their fav bands in front of peeling barrels and skate demos, all while indulging in the 280-degree views of Coffs Harbour’s surrounding salt water delights.
Rolling Sets ain’t your standard local gig. The team behind the new festival, Kingdom Sounds, have coupled up with the founders of Banana Fields festival, channelling their years of experience to bring you a stellar line-up of local musicians both established and emerging. Tapping into their local knowledge, the crew are uniting to push the froth-o-meter to new stoke levels.
Australian Hip Hop royalty, Hilltop Hoods, are set to headline the inaugural Rolling Sets festival. With nine ARIAs under their belt since 2006 and over one million album sales thanks to illustrious works like their most recent number 1 album The Great Expanse. The trio have recently impressed massive crowds, having performed to over 80,000 fans across seven shows around the nation in the second leg of their “The Great Expanse” world tour – a tour that has since made history by becoming the largest tour of any Australian act in 2019.
Joining them will be the ever-popular and award-winning indie rock band from New South Wales, The Rubens, whose studio album in 2018, Lo La Ru, became their third to debut within the ARIA top 5. The band will pump out tunes soaked in copious amounts of soul, taking you on an unforgettable journey across their many hits and crowd favourites such as “Never Ever”, “Hoops” & new single “Falling Asleep at the Wheel”.
Fans of great homegrown music and good vibes will also be able to revel in local artists including indie-pop sensation Mallrat, famed as one of Australia’s most promising young songwriters and charming vocalists. She joins the Rolling Sets line-up with 16-year-old triple j Unearthed winner, George Alice, who’ll perform her captivating debut song “Circles”. Also set to wow the stage are Los Scallywaggs, Vanilla Gorilla, Stupid Baby, Milky Thred and Nana Klumpp & many more.
Hand in hand with the good vibes and good tunes, good food is also high on the priority list for the Rolling Sets debut. Festival-goers will be able to chomp their way through the day with an assortment of mouth-watering Bao, along with wood-fired pizzas and juicy burgers, ready and waiting to cure any case of the munchies.

Let’s face it, no-one’s sleeping so the crew from Rolling Sets & Take 3 encourage local punters to join in on the beach clean-up. Head over to www.rollingsets.com.au to enrol, donate and join the beachcomber crew.
Established as an Australian organisation in 2009, Take 3 for the Sea is a global movement designed to help keep oceans healthy by reducing plastic pollution and waste. The mantra is simple: Take 3 pieces of rubbish with you when you leave the beach, waterway or anywhere, and you have made a difference.
