Pandeomium festival has confirmed changes to their lineup after much public speculation, along with new pricing and refund options.

“We have been hard at work ensuring we deliver events that provide fans with the best possible experience and we extend our thanks to those who have patiently waited for our good news,” the festival outlined in a statement.

“Four festival dates with a couple of location tweaks and a formatting alteration, and one killer Newcastle side show will proceed later this month. We acknowledge the current state of the Australian economy and the cost of living crisis, of which we’re constantly reminded of by the media. This cost of living crisis has impacted the live music touring industry significantly and forced many other festivals and tours sadly, to cancel. Pandemonium is not one of those and despite aforementioned national issues our festival is moving forward.”

Pandemonium’s new single-stage lineup

  • Alice Cooper
  • Blondie
  • Psychedelic Furs
  • Wheatus
  • Wolfmother
  • Palaye Royale
  • Cosmic Psychos
