This November, Hobart's iconic Princes Wharf 1 will be the home to The Soundscape Festival, one of Tasmania's biggest music events of the year.

The festival started as a small, local event in 2008 to grow to one of the most prominent and anticipated events in the region.

Over the past four years huge international acts such as Basement Jaxx, Born Ruffians, Mystery Jets and Roots Manuva have graced the festival with their presence.

Great local bands have also been present at the event with acts such as Empire of the Sun, PNAU, Cut Copy, The Living End, Grinspoon and The Getaway Plan playing at the festival.

This year's event has seen a shakeup with the January event being moved to November, and the festival opting for a two-day event with an emphasis on "moving to a more boutique festival".

Taking place on November 16 – 17, the revamped, 18+ Soundscape Festival will feature spectacular live music, good food and drink, shorter queues and reduced capacity for an enjoyable experience.

A brilliant lineup has been announced for this year's event with ARIA award winners headlining the two days with The Temper Trap headlining Friday and Missy Higgins headlining Saturday.

Festival organiser Brendan Self said: "The Temper Trap and Missy Higgins have been killing it overseas and we are super excited to have both acts for this Hobart event. The Temper Trap are only doing one Australian show outside of supporting Coldplay and it is Soundscape, so we are in for a treat."

Also announced to take the stage are Bluejuice, Yacht Club DJs, Big Scary, Strange Talk, Skryptcha, Mitzi, The Cairos, Asta and The Mornings.

The popular Silent Disco will also be making a return and is a hot favourite for music festivals all over the world, from Glastonbury to Coachella.

Tickets are available now from the Soundscape Festival website, and are priced from $89 for a single day pass.
