Subsonic Music Festival

Fri, 6th Dec, 2019 at 12 PM – Sun, 8th Dec, 2019 at 11:59 PM

Subsonic Music Festival is postponed, tickets valid for swathe of club shows to take place in Sydney December 6th – 8th and revised festival dates later this summer.

Subsonic Music Festival has today announced the postponement of the annual boutique festival until early next year. The postponement comes amid safety concerns arising from ongoing fires in the area and critically low water levels in the Karuah River. This has resulted in Riverwood Downs removing permission to use the venue on the scheduled date.

The Festival has secured a stunning new venue and a revised date and location for this summer’s epic Subsonic Music Festival will be announced shortly.

All tickets remain valid for the new date and venue and tickets holders will also gain access to a series of exciting club shows happening in Sydney across the weekend of December 6th – 8th.

“Despite our best efforts to work through the concerns of the event stakeholders, unfortunately we have been given no other option but to temporarily postpone the festival. We will shortly be announcing our exciting new venue location and a new date for this Summer’s Festival. We will also be announcing a whole swathe of wicked club shows for the weekend of December 6th – 8th, so that our wonderful Subsonic ticket buyers will still get to see the artists they are excited about . We would like to offer our sincere apologies to all our patrons, artists, stallholders, staff and volunteers that are affected by the postponement. We were only advised of the unavailability of Riverwood Downs at very late notice and were unable to safely change the venue for next weekend. The collaboration between Subsonic and Riverwood Downs has been a great one, spanning many years. We hope that all our loyal and wonderful Subsonic ticket holders will support us in this transitional time.” – Scott Commens (Festival Director)

Stay tuned for more updates coming soon.


SUBSONIC 2019. A new era is here.

As we round the corner on a decade of SUBSONIC Music Festival, we enter into our 11th exciting year and into arguably the most important edition yet of our ground shaking festival. For ten years we have constantly pushed the needle, hammered the subs, and driven ourselves onwards – always towards producing the best event possible. It’s our true north: if the underground could see the light of day, and dance with the rays of the hot Australian sun, what would it look like? With a new decade before us, we are more energised than ever. Like a sunshine kiss from a bottle of dance floor champagne; we are shining forever bright. This is the year. This is it.

It’s with careful curation and enormous pleasure that we announce our biggest house and techno lineup to date. Accompanied by an incredible roster of bass, psy, and progressive stars, alongside talented live music artists and bands. This lineup is the fusion of old-school meets new-school; smashing legends and underground risers. No matter where you are, or what your flavour is at Subsonic, you won’t want to leave the dance floor.
