Australian hip-hop kings Hilltop Hoods will headline the City of Greater Geraldton’s third Wind on Water Festival in April.

Known to dominate radio stations with hits such as The Nosebleed Section (2003), the Clown Prince (2006) and Cosby Sweater (2014), the three-piece South Australian group have become a household name since debuting in the 1990s.

The trio have won multiple ARIA awards, their albums have gone platinum multiples times and since 2006, every studio album they have released has debuted at No.1.

Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said there was unlikely to be an unoccupied spot in the crowd.

“This is absolutely huge and the biggest WoW Fest headliner we’ve ever had,” the mayor said.

“You really won’t want to miss this and there’s a chance the show will probably sell out.

“So tell your friends, tell your family and get your tickets now — this is going to be big.”

Tickets are on sale today from 7am for $75.

The City of Greater Geraldton is doing a two-week initial release and is offering tickets $25 cheaper to locals who use the code word “wowlocal.”

The discounted tickets will be available until November 29.

After that date, all tickets will be sold at $75 or $90 at the gate if not sold out online.

Wind on Water Festival 2020 will be on April 11 and 12.
