The lineup will also feature local Canberra acts including Genesis Owusu and Moaning Lisa, Sputnik Sweetheart and Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers. You'll also be able to catch a glimpse of emerging acts Cry Club, Good Doogs, Ninajirachi, Pagan and Fritz who round out the lineup.

Stonefest was first held in 1971, marking the laying of the university's foundation stone in 1968.
