Junkyard Festival is organised by James Booker, a Sydney-based musician and bassist for local band, Doc Holliday, and Mody Grant of psychedelic-indie rock outfit, Deep Sea Arcade.

The event is held bi-monthly in Sydney’s inner west. "We've come to realise the success of Junkyard belongs to the new and exciting bands we book and the cool people those bands attract," says Booker.

As part of King Street Crawl, the Botany View Hotel will host hometown heroes The Walking Who, Alex Cameron, Flowertruck, White Dog, Matrick Jones and Bad Valley.

Live music will be accompanied by DJ sets from Sudek, Bustlip, Ryan Saar, Cache 1 and FBi Radio host, Greta Balog.

The ruckus kicks off at 12pm.
