Patrons will have the choice of booking a VIP, Gold, Silver or Bronze Party Pod. Each pod is an island oasis for a group of 4 or 6 people and decked out with its own esky of pre ordered drinks and tasty snacks.
Singing…check. Dancing…check. The Party Pods are ready for all the action you’ve been missing!

For those who need a little extra snackage on the day, alongside the pre order options there’ll also be a range of food trucks at the ready.
So check out the lineup, wrangle your mates and get ready to return to live music programming as usual this December and January as Summer Sounds brings the festival feels back to Adelaide
The narrative of the Spiderbait story is so fantastical it could only be based in truth: three friends from a small country Australian town taking on the Australian music scene on their own terms and emerging triumphant 25 years later as one of the biggest and best on the national scene. Their distinctive music and cheeky arrangements make Spiderbait difficult to pigeonhole, the rock’n’roll royals’ unique stylings allowing them to share stadiums with both Guns N’ Roses and Pink, as well as playing alongside everyone from Beastie Boys to Rollins Band and Midnight Oil to Cold Chisel.
Spanning over 20 years of musicianship, Jebediah is the epitome of an Alternative Australian classics. Throughout their history, the Perth locals have snagged lineup slots at all the acclaimed Aussie festivals like Big Day Out, Falls Festival and Splendour in the Grass where they rip through their alt-rock discography with an infectious, youthful energy. Many years on, Jebediah maintain their liveliness and longevity, with that feeling of nostalgia still being heard & felt in their more recent releases.
Melbourne punk rockers, Bodyjar, pack a real punch into their high energy tracks, with a live show that has been finessed throughout their near 20 years of experience in the music industry. Their debut release, You Can’t Hold Me Down saw them tap into and own the classic punk sound of the late 90’s early 2000’s. With rapid speed drum licks and classic guitar shredding, the band made appearances at all the usual festivals of the time, namely Big Day Out and the Vans Warped Tour before splitting in 2005. The band are now back together, and releasing music just like the early days.
END OF FASHION
At the beginning of their career, Perth locals, End Of Fashion defied their own odds when lead singer, Justin Burford won a bet that he couldn’t write a song in a day. The song in question being none other than their 2005 release O Yeah, which is sure to strike a nostalgic mid-2000’s chord in Australian music fans. After taking a break in 2014, the band are back in action with their 2020 single, very aptly named BreakThru.
