Speak Satellite Festival

  • Various venues Wollongong (map)

This is an official warning to avoid Wollongong between the 23rd and 29th of September. A forum of sonic renegades is meeting to perform unregulated and unsterilized music - it is believed that aliens may seize the event. Avoid contamination by sticking to the usual channels. Do not take risks. Stay safe.

***23rd September - North Gong Hotel - All Ages

Two organisations, calling themselves Lyre Byrdland and Baldwins, are advertising a public demonstration at North Gong Pub. A strain of alien known to induce violent rhythmic paroxysms has abducted their sonic experimentations. Remain vigilant.

Tickets: FREE

***26th September - Moving Mountains Gallery - All Ages

Radar surveillance has detected high levels of mind-altering content at Moving Mountains Gallery. Three notorious agitators - Microfiche, Rebel Scum, and Prophets – are thought to be responsible. Stay clear.


***29th September - Wollongong Unibar - 18+

Alien sympathisers are organising a mass convention at Wollongong UniBar. Wallace, Minus Marcus, Godriguez, Colourfields, SilverTalon, YuTrio and Jake Walker are expected to feature. Do not fraternise with these people. Lock your doors.



The Speak Satellite Festival is an event that showcases forward thinking artists and is an initiative of the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music to present new and diverse music in the Illawarra. Over three nights, some of Australia’s most progressive young musicians will congregate in Wollongong to share sounds and ideas; to connect the past and possibility. The Speak Satellite Festival is part of the Wollongong Fringe Festival presented by Yours and Owls.
