As if 200 musical acts weren't enough, Peat's Ridge Festival has just announced a massive arts program! Diverse, interactive and more amaze-balls fun than ever, this arts program is one not to be missed!
Making an anticipated return in 2012 are Peat's Ridge favourites including the New Years Fancy Dress Parade and Vic's Disco. Whether your bringing in the New Year parading around the festival in a creative costume, or boogying down in your best disco-glam, there wont be an uninspired person in the valley by 2013.
Not to be missed is the pinnacle of Peats Ridge Festival's 2012 arts program, The Night Odditorium. A different experience from any other, The Night Odditorium is another world. Brought to you by the Pork Collective, it's a completely immersive and surreal space for all festival goers, each of them faced with confronting theatre and installations such as the Theatre of One, the Hotline to God, and of course the Odditorium's twisted and crazy carneys.
Also new to Peats Ridge Festival is LOVE TV. Fresh off a summer tour of New York, LOVE TV is on a journey to uncover stories of LOVE at Peats Ridge Festival. Join the Aphrodite, Dr Love and the LOVE Wranglers in the Sunset Rouge Love Lounge and share your own story!
This year you can also Laugh along with the Umbrella Theatre
Company's pop-up theatre and be flabbergasted by the
numerous and spectacular installation artworks and independent acts
around the valley!
With plenty of circus groups at this years Peats such as SURCAS and Sacred Circus, as diverse as they are entertaining, you'll want to run away with the circus after getting amongst these thrilling performers, who will be roving the grounds and doing impromptu shows over the three days….
Speaking of getting involved in all the action, drum and dance
groups 'Drum Oz
Samba' and 'Hands,
Heart & Feet' are dishing up plenty of entertainment and
seeking collaboration wherever they go. Also roaming the
festival and looking for a yarn, the 'Garbage Grannies' and
Raindrop' are passionate about sustainability and willing to
tell anyone who'll listen.
Make sure you check out the full lineup here!
