The Poison City Weekender Returns With A Damn Hot 2016 Lineup

Screen Shot 2016-05-05 at 1.24.25 PM

Awww Yissssss! The annual Poison City Weekender is returning to Melbourne for its eighth (!!!!) incarnation this September, and as the years tack onto its legacy, so do the face-meltingly perfect lineups.

Leading the bill for this year’s jaunt are Melbourne party punks The Bennies, who recently dropped their third LP – Wisdom Machine – to perfect scores and emptied stashes the world over. By their side are Michigan indie rockers Pity Sex, who make their return Down Under after releasing their jaw-dropping sophomore, White Hot Moon just a few days ago. Rounding out the triple threat are Philly indie-punk outfit Cayetana – the Weekender will mark their Australian touring debut, where we’ll finally be melted in our Docs by tracks from their 2014 debut, Nervous Like Me.

Of course, those are just the headliners. With a second lot of bands still yet to be announced, the 22-act first run features a slew of local and international talent, from American legends in Rozwell Kid and Creative Adult to local luminaries Camp Cope, HannahbandThe Hard Aches and Totally Unicorn.

Tickets on sale this Friday, May 6th @ 10am via the links below!
