The line-up’s been announced for the Coconut Club, Southbound’s third stage and itty bitty disco tent: headliners are Benson, Ontario’s Grimm, KLP, Just A Gent, Kilter, Tom Drummond, Yahtzel, and Perth pokemaster, Sable. Also on the decks are locals Craig Hollywood, Aquaman’s Lab, DJ Mutchy, Slumberjack, Micah and The Housejunkie. Punters are also promised a new cocktail bar and – as any late-stage Coconut Club vet will appreciate – more sand. Check out the full line-up at

Southbound is still accepting applications for Stagebound, which could land your band a Saturday set at the Big Top. Three finalists will be showcased in November and promoed by local media (including an appropriately chuffed X-Press) with the People’s Choice skyrocketed to the festival’s main stage. Send Sunset Events a bio, promotional materials, and your preferred track by Friday, October 24. Full application requirements can be found at

Southbound happens at Sir Stewart Bovell Park, Busselton, on Saturday-Sunday, January 3-4.
