Presented by Triple J, Southern Cross Ten, Drum Media, Festival Of The Sun (Fotsun) is a small, boutique festival with an attendance of 3,000 people, designed to have a great vibe without being overcrowded. The last three years have sold out and been truly amazing events. Last year's performer's included Art vs Science, Ladyhawke, Dan Sultan, and Hungry Kids of Hungary.

All genres of music will be reviewed but heavy rock and metal will not have a huge chance at being picked due to noise restrictions by council. To be selected, artists must be Australian or must have lived in Australia for at least 12 months.

All artists picked to play on the main stage will have free lodging provided and will be compensated a negotiable fee. Artists playing acoustic between the main acts will get free camping and a negotiated fee. Sonicbids is Fotsun’s preferred submission method. A minimum of 2 Sonicbids artists will be selected. In total, 16 main stage and 6 acoustic artists will perform.

This year, Fotsun will be held in Port Macquarie on the 14th and 15th of December, 50m from the beach in a fantastic location at Sundowner Breakwall Tourist Park. The festival is designed to give punters an amazing, cheap weekend away.

Past performers include Xavier Rudd, Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings, British India, Spiderbait, Little Birdy, Augie March, The Beautiful Girls, Faker, Sarah Blasko, Children Collide, Mia Dyson, Philadelphia Grand Jury, That 1 Guy, Bob Log lll, The Mess Hall and many more.
