Live music, beers, more music, art, and some more music. Sounds like a decent night. 

Come the 11th of November, that’s exactly what’s going to be happening at the Lansdowne Hotel in Chippendale. Misfit at heart is a board and apparel brand, but like any well-versed individual, their interests reach further than sliding around in the brine.

In a collab with the music label, Space 44, and clothing juggernaut, General Pants, Misfit have lined up their first ever music festival. 

Nine bands, two stages, and one debauchery brimming evening. 

Skegss is headlining off the back of their debut LP (they also played three consecutive sold out shows at The Metro), Stab’s favourite analogue synth-lord Buzzkull,  Jake Vinny’s own Cloacas, and the Cosmic Psychos who ascertain you’ll go home with more than an alcohol induced headache. 

It’s all kicking off at 6pm on Sunday the 11th of November (prepare for a downer on Monday) at 2-6 City Road, Lansdowne Hotel. 

Tickets are on sale as of right now and you can buy them over here if you’re so inclined. 

We’ll see you there, just remember to clock in some annual leave for the day after – or throw a sickie if you’re brave. 

Scan the full lineup below!

A collection of the most peculiar, uncanny, and all-round absurd minds recruited for one fine evening in Sydney. In short, a music festival, but in substance, significantly more. 

Skegss are headlining off the back of releasing their debut LP and will be joined by an array of both local and interstate bands. The neck-jarring strums of the Cosmic Psychos, the girl-power-chords of Scabz, all the way to the synth propelled wall of Buzzkull. All housed between the art-adorned walls of the Landsdowne Hotel on the outskirts of the city. 

The Misfit Madminds Music Festival will be happening 6pm Sunday November 11 at The Lansdowne Hotel, 2-6 City Road, Chippendale.

Skegss, Cosmic Psychos, Pist Idiots, Scabz, Buzzkull, Cloacas, Ute Root, Screech, Crotch. 

Presented by Misfit, Space 44, and General Pants.
