I OH YOU and Frontier Touring proudly present Out Of Bounds, a fest for Sydney’s south west.
Out Of Bounds is a new music festival that has been built from the ground-up for the Macarthur/Campbelltown region. The inaugural event will take place on Saturday 18th of January at the Campbelltown Athletics Centre on a running track that many people from the area (including the festival’s founders) would have grown up using for their school athletics carnival. The festival’s goal is to bring some of Australia’s most exciting musical talents to the heart of the south west suburbs and create a top-tier music festival that area’s youth can call their own.
Across two stages from 1-10pm, the first ever Out Of Bounds features a blistering all-Australian line-up which traverses multiple genres, aimed at uniting people from all walks of life in the diversity-rich area. Co-headlining the 2020 event will be hip-hop hit maker and ARIA Award-winning artist Illy, alongside the Macarthur region’s very own hometown heroes and Hottest 100-topping The Rubens. They’re joined by a plethora of exciting Australian artists such as Mallrat, Trophy Eyes, WAAX, Alex the Astronaut, GRAACE, Clypso, Lex Deluxe and DJ sets from party-starters DZ Deathrays & Northeast Party House.
I OH YOU was founded by Johann Ponniah, who was born and raised in Campbelltown. It has since grown to become one of the country’s most acclaimed and successful independent record labels, Having had the opportunity to be part of the Australian music industry for 10 years, I OH YOU are keen to head back to Campbelltown and put back into to the community which helped shaped the framework and ethos of the label. The label will also be offering a young person from the area a paid internship at I OH YOU. The internship’s role includes working with the local council to begin regularly conducting panels with some of Australia’s finest musicians and industry professionals in the local area in 2020.
