With the recent release of the lineup of performers for this year’s Bunbury Music Festival, the students of McNick have been talking about the acts they are hoping to see as well as the performers to avoid.
The variation of this year’s genres is certainly something to note with the peculiar choice of having Snoop Dog as a headliner alongside the melodically and lyrically talented Black Keys and Avett Brothers. Much of the variation is good. For example, the acts range from the electronic sound of Walk the Moon and Tame Impala to that of the slower, more acoustic sound of Kacey Musgraves, the Jamestown Revival, and Father John Misty.
Long time attendee of the festival and senior at McNicholas High School, Jordan Lau is looking forward to see some lesser known performers. “The ones I’m hoping to see are The Front Bottoms, Mikky Ekko, and the Avett Brothers,” Lau said.
The lineup includes The Black Keyes, The Avett Brothers, Twenty One Pilots, Tame Impala, Old Crow Medicine Show, Walk the Moon, and Matt & Kim.
Lau’s advice to first time attendees is to be prepared to not see everyone on your list. “You won’t always be in the front for everyone, so be prepared for not being able to see every act.”
The Festival takes place June 5, 6, and 7, at Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove and tickets, which range from one day tickets worth $69.00 and $154.00, can be purchased on the Bunbury Festival website.
