BODY & MOVEMENT
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THIS ECO-CONSCIOUS CAMPING FESTIVAL?
As always it is our hope to facilitate Eco-Conscious party practices which promote interacting with awareness – of our selves, our tribe and our natural environment - whilst sharing our skills, talents and passions in an inspiring natural setting.
This is a child-friendly event which caters to all ages, colours, creeds, shapes and forms.
We aim to provide a space within which to party creatively, with love and respect for ourselves, other people, animals and the land itself.
The music at this festival is an eclectic blend of local and international live and electronic acts, with various styles ranging from acoustic folk and rock to electronic world music. No trance or heavy doef-doef.
Raucous, intoxicated and high-maintenance behaviour will not be tolerated at any point during the celebrations.
If you are unsure of the motivations of the people joining you, please take responsibility for relaying this message clearly.
Of course we will play, with much enthusiasm, but we expect everyone who attends to align with our ethos.
