This three dayer has plenty to offer a far flung festival goer, with a world class line up and plenty of offbeat areas to get lost in.
How do you make one of Australia’s most beautiful spots (Byron Bay) even more attractive? Add in a kooky, vintage inspired festival. Tipis and flags ripple in the wind in every direction, hippy kids and hipsters chill out on the grass and veggie food means more than just a sad falafel here.
Outside of the main stages, there’s also a tipi forest complete with bare earth dancefloor, a global village which is home to everything from chanting monks, live art classes to the odd spot off fireside drumming. There’s the Very Small Mall for boutique things to buy (if you’ve any booze money left over), discussions and debates will unfurl at the Splendour Forum, Red Bull will host up and coming local talent or relax with a cocktail at the Smirnoff Cocktail Bar. There’s regular camping or you can book into Flash Camp, a tent hotel complete with soft bedding, towels and hot water.
Can’t be bothered to organise everything? Contiki will put a package together that includes ticket, transport from anywhere in Oz, plus glamping or hotel accommodation and a tour manager.

Travelling by Car: In order to minimise the number of private vehicles travelling to and from the festival, we need to encourage car-pooling as much as possible. As one of the ways to encourage ride-sharing, we will be requiring all vehicles entering the site to carry a pre-purchased Campers Carpark Pass, RV Park Pass, Day Parking Pass. The number of vehicle passes available each day will be capped.
