The 2017 instalment of Yours & Owls festival was the biggest yet. Over the weekend with the Wollongong festival hosted a huge local and international line-up that covered the full genre spectrum, from hip-hop (A.B. Original, Illy) to punk and hardcore (At The Drive In, Trophy Eyes, Northlane, Dune Rats, Bad//Dreems, Totally Unicorn) to indie rock and pop (The Preatures, Holy Holy, Bec Sandridge, Montainge).
Aside from a fairly absent security presence — punters regularly being escorted from the reserved front-of-stage area by photographers, rather than festival-hired personnel — the festival went off largely without a hitch, the early-summer temperatures providing the ideal compliment for the intended relaxed atmosphere.
