The announcement came via their Facebook page, with festival organisers stating:
“We are very excited to announce Rainbow Serpent Festival 2013 will go ahead after the Pyrenees Shire Council today granted all necessary permits. We are very thankful to council and emergency services and thoroughly appreciate the extra time required of them to reconsider our permit application.
It’s been a tough week and our entire team are now working harder than ever to produce the most spectacular Rainbow Serpent in 16 years as a thank you to our army of fans who gave nothing but support and encouragement when we needed it most.”
Furthermore, they’ve also stated that there will be a last minute addition to the lineup, who they describe as “one of the world’s most eminent DJ’s who has been pivotal in the worldwide electronic music industry for more than 25 years.” Stay tuned to Beat for the announcement.
