Sugar Mountain 2015

Tickets went on sale at 9am this morning for Sugar Mountain 2015. 

Sugar Mountain is an annually curated festival in Melbourne, a sensory splendour of music and artists which focuses on delivering the best in contemporary music, visual art and new media. It has also now moved from The Forum Theatre after three successful instalments, to the Victorian College of the Arts, which has allowed the event to expand to a five stage festival, comprising of three outdoor and two indoor stages.
