Australia’s first queer camping music festival set in the forests of Lake Mountain
Pass under the giant rainbow in the middle of a clearing alpine forest and enter the wonderful world that is Gaytimes.
Held at Lake Mountain Alpine Resort, Gaytimes is the country’s first queer camping music festival. The festival is restricted to 1,000 people and offers three days of broad-ranging live music and DJs, visual and performance art, and freedom of self-expression for everyone under the LGBTQIA rainbow.
Gaytimes aims to provide a platform for emerging queer and gender diverse artists to shine, and they aim to create a safe space for LGBTQIA people to come together and be themselves. This weekend getaway curates an eclectic and diverse lineup that features anything from visual art to light projections, yoga classes to speed dating and more.
Line-ups are announced around October, but with such strict numbers, it’s best to get your ticket as early as possible. Past highlights include sunset sets by Gretta Ray, Ngaiire and Mojo Juju, as well as an indoor nighttime club lit up with DJs, dancing and plenty of glitter.
As if life couldn't get any sweeter, the entire festival is BYO and there are gender neutral toilets.
