Scene News: Pandemonium Festival Update


The Pandemonium Around Pandemonium

It will be Pandemonium this April! Recently pandemonium, it seems, has ensued.
Pandemonium Rocks 
Australia this April for the first time! 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.

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.

With slightly altered programming Pandemonium is still headline iconic act heavy!

Fans will rock out at our festival events to:
Alice Cooper
Psychedelic Furs

Palaye Royale
Cosmic Psychos

They're all ready to rock and take the Pandemonium stage. That's right, stage, not stages.
Pandemonium is now a one stage festival.

The Gold Coast show will be moving from Doug Jennings Park to Broadwater Parklands, ensuring ease of access and egress as well as accessible car parking.
Due to popular consumer demand, the Brisbane event will be moving from Sandstone Point Hotel to the more city centric Eatons Hill.

Saturday, April 20: Caribbean Gardens, Melbourne
Tuesday, April 23: Alice Cooper,  Blondie, Psychedelic Furs, Wolfmother side show
Entertainment Centre, Newcastle*
Thursday, April 25 (Anzac Day): Cathy Freeman Park – Sydney Olympic Park Precinct, Sydney

Deep Purple will not be performing at Pandemonium Festival later this month. Deep Purple are
eager to tour Australia in the future as their schedule permits.

Placebo are very disappointed to announce they will not now be performing at Pandemonium Festival in April in Australia. The band are very sad not to be able to play at this time but instead hope to come to Australia with their own shows at a later date

Dead Kennedys and Gang of Four will not be performing at Pandemonium Festival later this month. Both acts hope to tour Australia in the future as their schedule permits.

Pandemonium Rocks 2024 not only delivers a day of iconic artists who are the soundtrack to our lives but also by proceeding supports our Australian artists, crews and music fans, the importance of supporting the Australian Festival scene right now has never been more important to ensure there is a future.
