Prepare yourself for a weekend of sensory overload. Non-stop dancing, music of all genres, art installations, food trucks, and delicious cocktails are all on the Goomfest 2 menu.
Set on a picturesque farm in Wangoom, 10 minutes outside Warrnambool, the festival brings together alternative up-and-coming musical acts and artists. The two-day camping festival allows for bring-your-own food and glass-free drinks and has been a popular inclusion into the growing south-west music and creative scenes.
Festival director Samuel Pyers is thrilled to bring Goomfest back for its second year.
“We aim to create a space to expose the community to the world-class artists and musicians in the area,” he said. “Our main goal is that people leave feeling inspired. I’m looking forward to grabbing a cocktail and having a boogie.”
