Melbourne's coolest summer music and arts festival is back on for 2017

Sugar Mountain is returning to the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) in 2017 with a killer music line-up and art from acclaimed local and international artists. Last week, we learned that British-American producer/songwriter Blood Orange had pulled out, but that The Avalanches would be replacing them. Sad times, but still, a fair trade in our book. 

Fans of the international underground DJ show Boiler Room will be glad to hear that the Boiler Room stage will also be back this year to broadcast Sugar Mountain's DJ sets live across the world. Sugar Mountain the only festival in Australia to host a Boiler Room stage, so don't miss the chance to throw shapes behind Melbourne's favourite DJs. 

Sugar Mountain's experimental Sensory restaurant experience is back – this time with IDES chef Peter Gunn, visual artist Daniel Arsham and Stranger Things-soundtrack creators S U R V I V E. Intrigued? Of course you are. Tickets are an extra $70, and we reckon they'll be worth it.
