The following artists support LEGION MUSIC FEST.  These acts are committed to perform if you pledge your support and, together, we reach our goal.

- How much do tickets for LEGION MUSIC FEST cost?

Once we reach out goal, Oztix will being selling a limited number of general admission tickets from $140. Pledge packages that include discounted tickets start from $125.

- How does the pledge thing work?

When you pledge to a package that supports LEGION MUSIC FEST you will need to enter your credit card details BUT nothing will be charged to your card until the campaign goal is reached. No goal, no festival, no payment, no risk. You can pledge multiple times.

- What's the line up?

Take a look at the section at the bottom of this page that lists all of the bands that have committed to being a part of LEGION MUSIC FEST if you guys get behind it and we reach our goal. Because this has all come together so quickly, we're still in the process of locking in a lot of the bands so we will update the line up daily.

- Why should I pledge if I don't know the whole line up?

We know it’s really tough for you guys to get behind something new after everything that’s happened. Especially because this is such a new way of doing things and we're asking you to pledge your support before the full line up is announced.  The thing is, we believe that we’re pledging to something much bigger than a festival. We’re pledging to become founding members of a community that won’t take no for an answer. A community that will shape LEGION MUSIC FEST for the future and, more importantly, the future of the hard music scene in Australia in general. We have the opportunity to do something that’s never been done before and show bands and music markets all over the world that we have strength in numbers and that the fans can and will mobilise to protect the industry that we love. 

- Is there an age restriction? 

No. LEGION MUSIC FEST is an all ages event. Under 15’s are required to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

2017 LEGION MUSIC FEST







We all LOVE the music festival experience.

It means a lot of things to a lot of people. Whether it's a rite of passage, discovering that new band that blows you away, a shared experience for you and a group of mates having a blast together, or as a way of getting to see that one act you have always wanted to see live.

The buzz, the sound, the smells (?!) and the feeling of loud, live, heavy music hitting you in the chest while standing alongside thousands of people all experiencing the same thing... this is what attracts us all to events like this.

We now have an opportunity to rally together and make history. Through our commitment to this crowdfunding model, together we can help establish a future for the Australian live music scene and have our actions speak boldly to the world.

Our number one goal with Legion music fest is to be able to establish an ongoing event driven by you, the fans as well as the artists, and produce it in a sustainable way so it will always be there for us.

This groundbreaking way of funding major music festivals is a true collaboration between the artists, the fans and the production team to do something great.

With transparency across the entire planning process and open communication with the fans throughout, the events can be tailored in a way never before seen, truly giving the power back to heavy music lovers in Australia.

We have strength in numbers. We are LEGION.

The Challenges



The challenges involved in establishing a sustainable music festival in Australia are many and varied and we are committed to working on these issues to help this event work long term. 

Predominantly due to Australia's distance away from countries where many touring artists reside, costs such as artist fees and international travel costs involved in attracting acts to join a festival lineup can really blowout. Additionally, internal artist costs such as airfares, accommodation and freight can also add up to a huge amount with a large touring party. 

It's important we are realistic and limit the size of these events to facilitate sustainablitity. This will help us keep ticket prices down and reduce major production costs. 

We will be limiting capacities for the 2017 east cost shows at a total of 10,000 people each show.

We know that there’s definitely a chance that this thing could grow into something pretty big in future years, but we want to make sure that we stay realistic and grow slowly.

The last thing we want to do is bite off more than we can chew and end up by making you line up for hours at the toilets and bars and piss you off by having too many bands play at the same time.

We pledge that we will always keep an awesome festival experience top of mind with everything we do .
