HERMITUDE have been revealed as the first act on the Southbound line up.

Tickets to the popular festival go on sale this week.

Hermitude will headline the first night of the festival, which this year runs December 27 to 29 after the scheduled January show had to be cancelled because of the South-West bushfire.

Only those who purchase the limited three-day ticket option will witness their fitness.

Southbound will mark Hermitude’s first show in WA for a while, with the talented duo based in LA for most of the year working on new material.

Organisers hope Hermitude’s electronic sounds will blow the roof off the big top on the opening night of the festival with new tunes and old favourites like The Buzz, Hyperparadise and Speak of the Devil.

Ticketing

Loyal Southbounders who purchased tickets to the cancelled January 2016 festival will be given an exclusive 48-hour window to secure their spot this December and will receive a special email from Southbound headquarters.

A limited number of first release tickets will be on sale to the general public from 9am Friday.

Southbound and the South West community

The rebuilding process from the devastating fires that led to the cancellation of the January 2016 Southbound festival continues to be a costly exercise in both time and money.

The Southbound Benefit Concert was held days after the January cancellation and raised more than $150,000 towards the appeal.

The festival will continue to undertake fundraising initiatives leading up to the December event, including collection options made on ground across the three-day festival.
