If you and your vinas have a busy summer already planned, never fear- you can still make it to a music festival together. Taking place from November 16th to the 19th in Tocumwal, NSW, this festival gives you some more time to plan (since the summer tends to sneak up on us). Though the line up hasn’t been released yet, you can head to the website to check out the “after movie” to get a feel for the vibes at this festival.  

Start planning now so that you can be sure to get tickets, especially for festivals in May- September, as they’ll sell out pretty quickly. Also, planning early means you can be sure all of your vinas are on board, and helps you know when you need to take time off and sort out the rest of your summer plans. Start shopping now for clothes and other camping/ festival essentials. It’s especially important if you and your vinas live far away from each other as it means that those who live further away from the site have time to make cheap travel arrangements. Get planning and give yourself something to look forward to this summer!
