A Guide to the Aussie Music Festivals from Quay Eyeware

While you’re gearing up for the end of the US festival season..Outsidelands and Austin City Limits, Aussies are already 1 day deep into Splendor in the Grass. That’s right, it’s now a never-ending festival season; an Endless Summer Festival of sorts, for those willing to travel. To get the goods on what other Aussie music festivals we won’t be missing next season, we sat down with the gang at Quay Eyeware Australia to get their tips for music festivals in the land down under.
To say the team at Quay are music lovers is an understatement. The label was born roadside on the festival side where founders Linda and Allen Hammond launched their range of fun, color popping sunglasses. They created the Quay range as they felt there was need for fun, fashionable frames that people could afford. The duo left the city behind to launch their range on the festival circuit. Quay was a hit with festival goers and demand grew and the brand grew and went on to launch internationally in 2009.

So we turned to the experts to get their top 5 fest picks before they packed up and shipped out for stop No 1, Byron Bay…
