Strawberry Fields’ giving away tickets for its 10th birthday


The yearly celebration of art, music and the outdoors, Strawberry Fields, turns ten in November. So be sure that festival organisers are planning a party to commemorate the decade.

Marking the ten years, Strawberry Fields is launching a competition to give the winner and three friends the ultimate festival experience. The prize includes non-transferable lifetime tickets to Strawberry Fields, a ride to and from the festival in a vintage white stretch limo, and luxury glamping.

All you need to do to enter is tell Strawberry Fields your favourite memory of their festival. The winning entry requires creativity, humour and community spirit and a previous attendance to the festival with proof if needed. Entries close June 1.

If you miss out on tickets through the competition or want to experience Strawberry Fields for the first time, tickets are available on May 15 on the festival’s website.

Recently, the festival was named one of the Top 10 Festivals in the World by Resident Advisor for the fifth year in a row, described as “more than just a well-booked dance music festival, Strawberry Fields is a conscientious member of its community.”

Located in Tocumwal, on the banks of the Murray River, the festival has grown from less than 1000 punters in 2009 to a predicted 8000 this year. It’s a staple of the Australian summer calendar as it introduces diverse electronic artists to Australia’s bush landscape. In the last ten years, artists such as Apparat, Booka Shade, Carl Craig, Floating Points, HUNEE, Moodymann, Mr Scruff, Nightmares on Wax, Stephan Bodzin, and Tycho have played the ‘wildlands’.
