Bunbury Music Festival All Weekend Long
Bunbury is back for its third year and once again it’s bringing a whole lotta talent! This year the indie-rock/pop festival down at Sawyer’s Point will be headlined by Paramore, Empire of the Sun, Fall Out Boy, and the Flaming Lips. But as the fest has shown in its brief history it always bring a much deeper roster to fill up multiple stages over the weekend.
In addition to the headliners, bands like Fitz And The Tantrums, Young The Giant, New Politics, and Cage The Elephant will be there. There are tons of more bands to name, and if you want to see the full lineup, check it out here.
