The nine day festival held at Manly Beach in Sydney will bring together some of the world’s top athletes in surfing and skateboarding, combined with two days of concerts, art/photo installations and interactive sponsor displays.
The two free beachside nights of music will see notable artists such as Angus & Julia Stone, Mansionair, Cloud Control and Kita Alexander.
Kicking it off will be Mansionair on Friday afternoon, followed by Cloud Control. The following day will see Kita Alexander opening for brother and sister duo, Angus & Julia Stone.
The 2016 event will be the first time that music powerhouse, MTV Music, has joined Australian Open Of Surfing as a new sponsor and provider of the free concerts and stage. The all ages sets will be placed on the last weekend of the nine day stretch and are sure to be the perfect end to the competition.
