This weekend, Bunbury Music Festival returns to Sawyer Point & Yeatman's Cove with headliners Fun., MGMT, and The National. Last year was the first year for Bunbury and it impressed many fans of local and national music alike. The festival is sure to satisfy any music fan with over 80 performances; there is truly something for everyone this weekend.

Bunbury has put in every effort to make the festival an enjoyable experience. You may want to read our article on the beer, food, and other amenities that will make your weekend even more awesome.

In addition, we've teamed up with Bunbury and Seven/Seventy-Nine to fill the VIP tent with exclusive acoustic sets from some of our favorite artists playing the festival. If you're not a VIP ticket holder, we will be offering the chance to see one of these sets. You can enter to see Walk The Moon's acoustic set on our Facebook page, or stop by our booth at Bunbury to enter for the other 12 performances.

Tickets are still available online or at the gate for $130 (three-day) or $65 (one-day). You can also still enter to win a pair of three-day passes on us. 

Below is an alphabetical list of the 33 (you read that correctly – thirty-three!) Bunbury artist interviews we have posted over the past few months. Visit our full festival schedule (and bookmark it on your phone) or download a printable schedule to plan your weekend.
