Hi friends,

I hope you’re well.

Today I’m so excited to announce that I OH YOU will be holding a festival called Out Of Bounds on the 18th of January 2020 in my hometown of Campbelltown, NSW. It’s been a long time in the works and has been formed with the help of people much more skilled than myself. Now that the announce day has arrived, it feels both very real and surreal at the same time! We’ll be bringing some of Australia’s finest talents to the 2560 - including Illy, The Rubens, Mallrat, Trophy Eyes, Waax, Alex The Astronaut and more.

Being born and raised in Campbelltown ‘til I finished high school, I know what an amazing place it is to grow up. I’m intensely proud of my hometown area and grateful for everything the community gave me. In saying that, I also know how distant and separated it can feel from the inner city areas that are often spoilt for choice and cultural opportunities. The Out Of Bounds festival is aimed at beginning to bridge that gap and hopefully allowing all the brilliant young people in the region a chance to see some of Australia’s best musical talents.

While the festival is the centrepiece of our plans, we’re also offering someone from the local area a paid internship with I OH YOU and will also be working with the council to bring musicians and industry professionals to the region to hold forums, panels and Q&As in the hope of creating more connections between young people in south-west Sydney and the music industry.

There is a bunch more information on the festival and the amazing artists playing further below.



In response to the devastating bushfires across Australia, Out Of Bounds have introduced a special ticket offer, with $10 of the new $69 ticket going directly to the Red Cross Bushfire Emergency Appeal.

I OH YOU and Frontier Touring proudly present Out Of Bounds, a fest for Sydney’s south west.

Out Of Bounds is a new music festival that has been built from the ground-up for the Macarthur/Campbelltown region. The inaugural event will take place on Saturday 18 January at the Campbelltown Athletics Centre on the running track that many people from the area (including the festival’s founders) have grown up using for their school athletics carnival. The festival’s goal is to bring some of Australia’s most exciting musical talents to the heart of the south west suburbs and create a top-tier music festival that area’s youth can call their own.

The Macarthur region sits an hour or so south-west of Sydney. Mayor of Campbelltown Cr George Brticevic said “We are delighted to welcome a brand new music festival to the area headlined by some of Australia’s best-known artists, including local superstars, The Rubens. Hosting a music festival of this magnitude at the Campbelltown Athletics Centre is a sign that our city is bursting to life with opportunity.”

Across two stages from 1.00-10.00pm, the first ever Out Of Bounds features a blistering all-Australian line-up which traverses multiple genres, aimed at uniting people from all walks of life in the diversity-rich area. Co-headlining the 2020 event will be hip-hop hit maker and ARIA Award-winning artist Illy, alongside the Macarthur region’s very own hometown heroes and Hottest 100-topping, The Rubens. They’re joined by a plethora of exciting Australian artists such as Mallrat, Trophy Eyes, WAAX, Alex the Astronaut, GRAACE, Clypso, Lex Deluxe along with DJ sets from party-starters DZ Deathrays & Northeast Party House.

I OH YOU was founded by Johann Ponniah and has grown to become one of the country’s most acclaimed and successful independent record labels. Having the opportunity to be part of the Australian (and global) music industry for 10 years, I OH YOU are keen to head back to Campbelltown and give back to the community which helped shape the framework and ethos of the label. The label will also be offering a young person from the area a paid internship at I OH YOU. The internship’s role includes working with the local council to begin regularly conducting panels with some of Australia’s finest musicians and industry professionals in the local area in 2020.
