Swamp House News & Reviews Leave a Comment

Australia’s newest touring festival, The Drop featuring SAFIA, Dune Rats, San Cisco, Holy Holy and Ruby Fields, is gearing up to kick off this Saturday, hitting the shores of D’Bah near Snapper Rocks, Torquay near Bells Beach and glorious Margaret River alongside the Australian leg of the World Surf League Championship Tour.

The Drop will take place on the first weekend of each coinciding surfing event and will appeal to surfing and music fans alike, showcasing local culture, food and beverage vendors and a shared love of the ocean.

The Drop founding partner and Australian surfing legend Wayne “Rabbit” Bartholomew said “Super pumped for the next couple weeks of hosting the best of the best in Cooly and around the country. My son told me his whole class is coming to The Drop. Now I know for sure the line-up of talent is sick!!!!”

Check out Rabbit and San Cisco’s Jordi Davieson going for a surf at Snapper a few weeks back.
