News : Housefox Fest returns to Sydney’s Northern Beaches this April

By on March 16, 2017

After a very successful debut event last year, Housefox Fest is set to return to Sydney’s Northern Beaches on Saturday, April 22nd at Narrabeen RSL.

Known as the go-to all inclusive music event for indie, blues, rock, punk and heavy metal, this year’s event is set to dial things up a notch by setting Tasmania’s Psycroptic, Sydney hardcore staples, Toe To Toe, and Sydney act Black Rheno as the headliners for the massive festival.

Housefox Fest is a locally run, grass roots, rock n roll, punk and heavy metal event organized and run by the crew at Housefox Recording Studios & Sydney’s sludge, grind & groove act Black Rheno

The event came together in a bid to help lift the local scene and showcase some of the very best talent on the northern beached.
Playing tunes ranging from indie rock, blues and punk through to all out metal brutality, this years event will also include some great interstate acts!

Housefox Fest starts early with 2 stage areas running on the ground floor, an outdoor BBQ and bare foot bowls on the green.
Later in the afternoon the Main Auditorium will open up with bands playing well into the night.

With more bands and details still to come,  it’s not hard to see that this is going to be a truly rollicking great day of tunes and good times!
