“The environment is really important to us. We needed a place that was accessible and a hidden oasis. The Macedon Ranges site is perfect. It’s got amazing bushland and this awesome hotel infrastructure we’re using to host our dance floors, camp site, workshops, immersive art installations and outdoor activities.” - Festival 23 Creative Director Matt Bonner (ex creative director of Let Them Eat Cake NYD Festival)
