Following last year’s sold-out event, LTEC organisers are promising something bigger and better than ever before.

“LTEC has always stood proudly as a space that allows our punters to explore the union of music and art, with a focus on championing live, local, and world renowned creatives. This year, our attention grows and the fixation unravels – in our passion for freeing experiences in all forms. LTEC has been an event that pursues immersive pleasures, values self-indulgence, and finds satisfaction in all desires,” the festival announced.

“We invite you to say goodbye to the year that has been, and dance your way into the new year, while exploring what we have to offer on our heritage-listed grounds rich with clusters of music, culture, art, cuisine, and community.

“Our 10th edition will reveal a complete development of style and vision. While the familiarity of our playground lingers, an open space remains for a more transformative experience. As we enter another year, LTEC will draw upon our last nine editions and create an opportunity to reset and reinvigorate your senses, your passions, your visions.”
