Southbound is an Australian arts, camping and music festival taking place at the Sir Stewart Bovell Park in Busselton, in Western Australia on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th January 2013.

Line-upThe line-up over four stages will include the latest additions; Angus Stone, Ball Park Music, Cosmo Jarvis, Django Django, The Hives, Jinja Safari, Lisa Mitchell, Matt Corby, Sharon Van Etten and Two Door Cinema Club.
They join Beach House, Best Coast, Boy & Bear, Coolio, The Flaming Lips, SBTRKT, The Vaccines, Bombay Bicycle Club, First Aid Kit, Hilltop Hoods, Hot Chip, Maximo Park, Millions, and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs!.
TicketsTickets were priced at $200 Australian for weekend with camping and have sold out.
Green ethosThere is a Green Fee of $3 added to every ticket sold. The Green Fee goes directly into purchasing carbon credits used in offsetting the carbon footprint of those patrons including travel to and from the event. The festival also recycles waste, as well as initiatives including composting, stall holder packaging policy, EcoBound education and awareness campaigns, and more EcoBound initiatives (yet to be announced). Festival organisers also match every Green Fee dollar with $2 of its own money, used to further offset carbon emissions. They also have a Tree-For-Ticket policy, where they purchase a tree for every ticket sold. In 2009 this led to 20,000 tree plantings across Western Australia.
Getting thereThere are good international transport links straight to Perth airport. If you are travelling from out of town to Busselton, buses will be organised to get you to the Festival. Bus tickets are limited and must be pre-purchased.
More information will be here when available.
