The Town


A quirky village in a far away land. Nov 29- Dec 2nd.

THE TOWN

Licola Wilderness Village.

The town is a mock interactive village that parodies society in a creative, family friendly, interactive and totally absurd festival.

It is full of immersive buildings, activities, characters + shenanigans around every corner! It also explores what makes a sustainable Town and focuses on healthy and sustainable living, connection over consumption, and sustainable solutions.

The town this year will be set in the 90’s, embracing a world before tech addiction, rich with fresh music, punk attitudes and businesses that thought they’d last forever.

Concept

The concept behind the Town is to create a colourful, immersive village that parodies the real world.

The festivals is full of interactive spaces, actors and narrative to explore, and we also encourage all to bring their own characters and ideas to share with the event.

It also is a sustainable village, that allows us to reflect on how we live our daily lives, and make choices that are best for ourselves, our community and the planet.

This melding of absurdity and sustainability is what makes the concept so unique and special.

Sustainability

The Town is a family friendly event. It prides itself on self-care, land care, and community care, with a huge focus on connection instead of consumption.

Each year we further explore how to be more sustainable, and encourage all to party in a way that is healthy and could keep being done forever. This is one of the most important things to keep our beautiful Town striving.

Licola is now running on 95 percent sustainable energy, and we continue to improve our own sustainable initiatives each year. We encourage you to use the festival as a reflection point on how to lives your own lives in a more healthy and sustainable fashion.

Location

In a beautiful valley on the Macalister, river lives a little town called Licola. It is owned by the Lions club and the Villages main goal is to run disability and disadvantaged youth camps all year round. The running of our festival helps support them do this great work.

At this time of year, the deciduous trees are falling beautiful colors all over the site, the rainfall is low, and the grass is green. The site is one of the few Festivals that can boast lush green grass and no dust.
