Bulga Beats Festival 2020
Date and Time
IT'S OUR 5TH BIRTHDAY!
Bulga Beats Festival returns for a special celebration in 2020 with a weekend of music, dance, and connection! The journey so far has been so amazing, each year we change, grow and redesign what this festival is. With all the change and growth we can look back and all agree that we achieved what we set out to do. Attract people to Bulga to experience why we love our town, to provide a space for all people to enjoy, dance and connect, but most of all allow for different walks of life to share conversations, to meet and interact, and to build community spirit and unity.
Gates open on Friday Afternoon with the festival continuing full swing Saturday and finishing off with a laid back Sunday closing just after lunch. Our site is located on the Bulga Recreation Ground just 50 minutes west of Newcastle and 20 minutes from Singleton and the Hunter Valley wine region.
All tickets include camping & are priced at $85+ BF for the weekend, Kids 16 - 18 years old are $50+BF and under 16 is a gold coin donation.
(BF = Booking Fee)
We always are more than happy for campers to rock up as early as they like, with some coming days in advance to just sit back and watch us work. Friday night festival gates will open at 5:00 pm with the opening event being a traditional Bush Dance at 6 pm followed by a range of music and entertainment in various areas. And don't forget to bring your instruments for fireside jams that will be happening throughout the night after scheduled music has finished.
Saturday will see the festival in full swing with a variety of workshops to attend, along with dance and music entertainment happening throughout the day. Saturday night will see the main stage, and workshop spaces come alive with music, dance, performance and all of YOU! Please let loose, Dance and always be mindful, respectful and caring to all others at the festival.
We have a reputation for a lazy Sunday with plenty of opportunities for relaxation and fun. Sunday morning will start with Yoga, Meditation and a few movement-related workshops to get the body going! We then follow our tradition of offering a guided bushwalk and tour of our off-grid property and new home to our permanent event space Sapwood Projects. As always Sunday will have plenty of time for Market stall shopping and laid-back music happening around the festival.
Bulga Beats Festival was planted in the Inlet Road of Bulga with a backdrop of the glorious Wollemi National Park that provides a perfect situation for flat camping with adjacent mountains. Please arrive as early and stay for as long as you like, it’s a perfect base to visit the vineyards or spend some time in the bush! The Festival was born from a need for connection, joy and community spirit! Come and experience the gathering of love, joy, and happiness. We always create a space for any walk of life, any background, any religion, and any age! It’s about connection and growth as we grow with you!
** Kids 16 & under are a gold coin donation with parent or guardian.
** This is a camping festival without showers.
