What To Expect

Culture

Sanctuary Sounds is an inclusive gathering of friends that share a love of music and community. 

We love to party!

With your help, we create a party like no other, fuelled by kindness, generosity, and good ol'fashion fun!

Theme

We are known for our yearly theme that helps set the scene and gives us all the opportunity to party in costume.  We encourage everyone to come with at least one costume and also have fun at your campsite by decorating your space and immersing yourself in the weekend!

Camping

We have enough camping space for everyone!  Large buses, trucks and campers are stationed at the front paddock.  Cars and tents are in the back paddock.  You are welcome to keep your car with you or park it and use a tent only space.

Zero Waste

We are proud of the land we inhabit and want to care for it as much as we do each other.  Please bring what you need and take away what you bring. 

Kids

Don't hesitate to bring the kiddies along!  They will love the relaxed vibe and freedom to explore the land.  Kids 14 and younger are FREE!

Food

There is plenty of food available from multiple food trucks.  Always something for everyone!  Feel free to bring extra bits and pieces for your campsite, but please patron the food trucks that help make our community.

Stalls

Need a break from front of stage, take a wander to the stall area.  You'll find artists, tarot readers, massage therapists and heaps more!

No BYO

We endeavour to keep our bar prices as affordable as possible.  You won't find the usual festival prices here, just mate rates! 

Please do not bring

your own booze into

the festival area.

Get Involved!

Volunteering is an EXCELLENT way to experience the festival! Shifts are short and sweet and will leave you plenty of time to enjoy the weekend!

We are always looking for yummy food trucks to provide food over the weekend. 

If you have a food truck,

tell us about it!

There is plenty of space to show and sell your wares!  Let us know what you specialise in!
