Sweet lineup drops for Big Pineapple Music Festival

IF YOU dug this year's Hottest 100 Countdown, then you're going to love the line-up for the Big Pineapple Music Festival.

The bill has just dropped for the 2020 event, to be held on May 30 at Pineapple Fields in Woombye, with Aussie hip hop stalwarts the Hilltop Hoods headlining.

The Adelaide trio came in at No 10 in the Hottest 100 with Exit Sign, their collaboration with Illy and Ecca Vandal.

They'll be joined by two of the other top 10 artists from this year's Hottest 100 music poll: G Flip and Thelma Plum.

Gympie's The Amity Affliction - arguably Australia's most successful heavy music exports - will also return home to Queensland for the festival. The band, currently on tour in Europe, will release its highly anticipated new album Everyone Loves You … Once You Leave Them later this month.

The festival also boasts Sydney dance music queen Alison Wonderland's only Australian show for 2020.

Camping capacity has been increased for this year's event, with entertainment and a licensed bar for punters staying on the Friday night.

Tickets for the 18+ event go on sale Thursday at 9am AEST via Moshtix. Pre-sale tickets start from $120 plus booking fee and two nights' camping starts from $40.
