Tabula Rasa is an independent music and camping festival set on the lands of the Gunditjmara, Tjap Wurrung and Bunganditj People. The festival hosts Australian and international DJs known to rapture dancers with rolling basslines, tumbling beats, breaks, and a smattering of lofty vocals. Tie it all together under the iconic waft of the gum trees and we have the makings of something special. We’re a small team putting on the party that we wanted to attend over NYE. But Tabula Rasa is written by you: the festival goers, performers, creatives, contractors, and volunteers keen to ring in the new year with dust between your toes. A festival is more than the music and performances. It takes a village to get this thing off the ground and individualism doesn’t fuel a good time. We do that together. Tabula Rasa is yours, our habitat. A gathering far greater than its musical parts. Let’s grow something special.
Music at Tabula Rasa 2022 will run for 3 days and 3 nights across three stages.
– Canopy Stage (Main stage) programmed by Tabula Rasa
– Emergent Stage (Side stage) programmed by Animalia and Techworld
– Forest Floor Stage (Retreat) programmed by Chomley
The creative arts program at Tabula Rasa will include installations, workshops, talks, movement classes such as Yoga and Hip Hop and pop-up stands for haircuts, manicures and tooth gems.
Tabula Rasa is a limited BYO event with two on-site bars. There will be food trucks with a variety of cuisines and dietary options, a general store for last minute necessities, original merchandise for sale hand-made and design by Naarm creatives and designated areas for chilling out. Tabula Rasa is presented by Plasma House Studios and supported by PBS radio station.
We acknowledge the Gunditjmara, Tjap Wurrung and Bunganditj people, the traditional custodians of the lands on which this festival is held. We pay our respects to ancestors and Elders, past, present and emerging.
