The electronic music event doesn’t shy away from its generosity. It prides itself as an event that is ‘from the people – to the people.’ The sixth edition of this event, it marks itself as an inclusive, safe event for all.

Featuring the hypnotic dark psytrance artist Alien Frequencies and the towering psychedelic reaches of Organic Vibrations, the festival has some of the best in the electronic world. With an overarching sprawling rooftop and gigantic dancefloor, you can expect to boogie until you drop.

Compared to their last doof location at the Lake Mountain Alpine Resort, the new location fits the criteria perfectly as well. Making sure they select sites for their main events in rural locations isn’t just to avoid noise complaints, it’s also to appreciate the country we live on. They’ve set up their location on the land of the Dja Dja Wurrung people and have a strict no-waste policy. Their aim is to leave the land like there wasn’t any sign of them in the first place.

As well as enrichment from the land being considered a high commodity, the organisers love to support the local communities surrounding them. They encourage giving back to the communities, business and towns that surround wherever they set up their festival.

The festival is expecting a minimum of 2000 attendees, with shuttle buses to get festival goers to and from Carapooee.
