Stonefest ‘Rock On’ Party to Replace Stonefest 2011

Stonefest Goes 'Back to Its Roots'

Stonefest ‘Rock On’ Party to Replace Stonefest 2011

UC Live! and The Frontier Touring Company have announced changes to this year's Stonefest music festival. Over the past 43 years the event has grown into an iconic Canberra music festival boasting acts such as Groove Armada, The Dandy Warhols, Pendulum, Bliss n Eso, Does It Offend You, Yeah?, Art Vs Science, The Living End, Josh Pyke and Birds Of Tokyo.

A new event will be held this year, which will see Stonefest return to its roots as a festival held to celebrate the unveiling of the University's foundation stone in 1968. The Stonefest 'Rock On' party will be held in the UC Refectory and on the UC Concourse and will feature some of the nation's best dance and hip hop artists.

"Stonefest is not attracting as many people as seen in previous years, and we feel we cannot continue with the 2011 festival in its current format," director of Campus Life Peter Dahl said.

"This is an opportunity for us to present something different to the Canberra audience. So, to give our loyal supporters something to look forward to, we have decided to present a more intimate event, which still boasts a strong lineup of some of the best dance and hip hop artists in Australia today.

"We are excited about the Stonefest 'Rock On' Party lineup and encourage the local community to support this event."

Some recent additions to the Stonefest format will remain, including the Silent Party which was very popular among fans last year.

Ticket holders who purchased Stonefest 2011 tickets via credit card will receive an automatic refund to their card. Those that purchased with cash or EFTPOS should return to their point of purchase with photo identification to obtain a refund.
