Christmas Eve stress? No worries.

No Worries Festival is the new music shindig for the silly season, taking over the New South Wales South Coast town of Moruya on Christmas Eve.

The festival has come together thanks to a typical “no worries” approach. Four years ago, the Paradise South Crew threw a party with their mates’ bands on a private property, attracting 100 punters. 300 turned up the next year, then 600 the year after that. Before long, the authorities stepped in.

Now they’ve turned legit and locked in a debut festival lineup, with 13 unsigned bands and DJs from the local area and beyond.

The 2016 No Worries Festival lineup is:

Mild Manic

Neon Queen


Gold Member


Short Fuse

Born Joy Dead

The Crookeds


The Con & The Liar


Noodle Froth White Wash

Calum MacTaggart

No Worries launches at the Waterfront Hotel, Moruya on Saturday December 24. Tickets are $50 and on sale now.
