After its debut in 2017, Pitch Music & Arts Festival quickly became one of the most exciting and hotly anticipated events on the festival circuit. Held at the tranquil foothills of the Grampian Plains, it aims to deliver a distinct blend of sonic soundscapes across three architecturally designed stages.
And dust off that doof stick because it will return in 2024 for the seventh edition. From March 8-12, 2024, the festival will be headlined by Gerd Janson, Patrick Mason, french techno producer I Hate Models, Italian acid techno duo 999999999, Job Jobse, Berghain resident Marcel Dettmann and VTSS.
Daniel Avery will do a live set for the first time in Australia, coinciding with the recent 10th anniversary of his classic album Drone Logic. KiNK will also be playing a live set. They’ll be joined by Turkish-born, Berlin-based DJ and producer Nene H and Mama Snake.

For those looking for a moment of reprieve, the Pitch Pavilion will appear this year. The tranquil sanctuary is where festivalgoers can participate in yoga classes, sound baths and ambient meditation. For those ready to rough it, you can bring your own tent and set it up in a free camping area. If you're a fan of creature comforts, there are a couple of glamping packs to choose from that include access to premium shower and toilet amenities, power, soft bedding and more.
Pitch is BYO and allows you to bring up to 24 cans, or one bottle of spirits decanted into a plastic bottle. There will be numerous bars on site serving cocktails, mixed drinks and a range of beers.
