A new festival is coming to Australia, however, there is a catch, New South Wales, Tasmania, Australian Capital Territory and Western Australia are excluded from the offering as the festival will only be going through Victoria, South Australia and Queensland.

The list of names for the tour is a good one – so far – with Australian heavyweights Grinspoon, Jebediah and Killing Heidi at the forefront of the festival with the likes of Eskimo Joe, The Superjesus, The Koffin Rockers, Thirsty Merc, Dallas Frasca, 28 Days, Rackett, IV League, Regurgitator and more.
Speaking on the creation of the festival, the Hotter Than Hell organisers noted ow “the intention of Hotter Than Hell has been to bring back the nostalgic feel of some of your best festival memories similar to that of Homebake and Livid, but more importantly, bringing it to thriving areas that don’t get spoiled with great touring music usually.”
