Performance Schedule & Times

See below for approximate playing times per day. The daily schedule will be updated once the artist announcement has been made.

Midnight Oil will headline Thursday 18th July. A performance schedule will be released when the full lineup is announced on the 18th December.

Tuesday 16th July 4pm to 7.30pm

Wednesday 17th July 12.20pm to 8.45pm

Thursday 18th July 11.30am to 7.30pm

Gates to the concert area will open approximately 1 hour prior to the first performance.

Artists performances finish at the times they do as it gets cold at night and this gives you some time to get back to your campsite and enjoy some time around the campfire.

Times are approximate and subject to change as certain weather conditions may cause the concert start time to be slightly delayed for the comfort of concert goers, however this will not impact the overall performance times as the finish time will be pushed back accordingly in such a situation.
