Atop its world-class music lineup, which will feature more than 70 artists, Wanderer also features a world-class program of music, art, comedy, theatre, circus and artisan workshops over three unforgettable days and nights. Heading up the arts program, the world-famous Flying Fruit Fly Circus, featuring Australia’s top young circus artists, perform their gravity-defying circus cabaret Over the Top. Not to be missed is multi-instrumentalist Adam Page delivering a master class in crafting improvised musical tapestries woven with equal parts charisma, humour and skill.

The unique and creative spirit of the Sapphire Coast region is integral and will be featured throughout the music and arts program, epicurean feasts and craft offerings. 

The festival is curated by Falls Festival’s own Simon Daly, “I’m thrilled with how Wanderer is shaping up this year. We’re curating a really strong program consistent with what Wanderer is all about. It is diverse in every sense and includes plenty of well-known favourites as well as amazing new talent. 

“We are really proud to be delivering such a world-class event in the Sapphire Coast. It is really rewarding creating something so equally loved by both the local community as well as travellers coming from all over Australia for an unforgettable experience in this stunning part of the world.”

It all goes down from September 29 to October 1. Tickets are available now at wanderer.com.au
