Every September

Harvest festival is an annual autumn festival dedicated to self-expression and community. The festival is a place of choice and action, a place to share in the communal vibe inspired by music, friends and natural beauty. It’s a place where we gather to create, experience and discover.

At the hub is a huge bonfire, it's the focal point that draws people together. From here you can visit three unique musical environments and the kitchen where tasty garden goodies can be enjoyed throughout the night.

September is a perfect time of year to get a carload of your friends together to kiss summer goodbye with an adventure to the great outdoors.

The festival is located on an expansive farm of rolling hills and valleys with some 97 massive sculptures, 4 large ponds, a castle home complete with turrets, and unusual farm animals like white doves, llamas, peacocks and geese wandering freely. And from the sky all the elements of the land link to form the shape of a 2km long dragon.

After the great success of last year's Friday camping night, we've decided to once again invite people to come up on Friday and relax around the bonfire at the land's most dazzling group of sculptures 'The Screaming Heads'. This is a quiet night with no music, which allows you to get the drive out of the way, choose a sweet campsite and wake up refreshed for a full day Saturday with time to take in the fall colours before the festival really kicks off.

Saturday night comes alive with 3 music stages including the pulsing Harvest Techno Tent, iconic Downtempo Pyramid, and Mind Playground of the BLA and Shakti Collective. The Kitchen will warm our bellies with farm fresh corn on the cob and legendary harvest soup. And at 8pm our friends Zero Gravity Circus will perform their breathtaking Harvest Lunacy Cabaret.

Each year festival-goers add to the environment with spontaneous art installations and endearing individual contributions. We encourage you to think of your own special way to participate and enrich the shared experience. If you need anything contact us at participate@harvestfestival.org to coordinate your creative project, or volunteer@harvestfestival.org to join us in bringing the event together in the weeks leading up to or at the event itself.
