The iconic Dance Tent will also make its return, featuring a 70-metre wide LED wall and renowned Funktion-One soundsystem. Dr Dan’s stage, the much-loved multilevel dancefloor colosseum, will reveal a new reimagined design for the 2022 festival.

Patrons can also step away from the music and go for a swim in the pools at the Beach Club, or uncover Schmall Klüb, a concealed party with spontaneous sets from your favourite DJs only accessible through a concealed secret entrance, via a portaloo door.

With this also comes the news of the introduction of a daily entry ticket, so punters have the option to stay at accommodation in the local areas (Geelong, Inverleigh, Teesdale etc) or go home each night. For the first time there will also be viewing platforms and Auslan interpreters at the Main Stage, and a designated accessible campsite positioned close to the festival arena.
