The Drop Festival | Newcastle


With two hugely successful tours already in its wake, The Drop Festival is back in 2020 for a third season that’s set to be even better and waaaay bigger. We drop in on our mates at Surfest, Saturday 7th March – Empire Park, Newcastle *Subject to Council Approval.

After making its way around the country hitting up some of the world’s best surf breaks to sell-out crowds, The Drop Festival will once again follow the World Surf League Championship Tour events at Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast, Bells Beach in Torquay & Margaret River in WA and Qualifying Series events Surfest Newcastle & Sydney Surf Pro in Manly. In 2020, for the first time, will add an additional stop at the Noosa Longboard Open.

Slap on your sunscreen and get ready to party with:
