2 great reasons 2 go Rainbow Serpent 2014

mastheads_artgalleryaPlanning to get away for the Australia Day weekend next year? Thought about  going to Lexton near Ballarat  for the 2014 Rainbow Serpent Festival?
The Age  summed it up  as “an alternative lifestyle festival” where the punters “come for the electronic music, healing workshops and mind-bending art”. Being a big fan of the ambient electro dub house music, one worker at Melliodora is more than keen to check out the Orb who will headline the stage. The rest of the lineup of musicians and DJs is good too. But, no, they are not  the only reasons we are looking forward to attending this world renowned festival held in a small local town (pop.200) in central Victoria.
One of the reasons is that David will give a presentation in the “Lifestyle Village”,  a “space for the Rainbow Serpent family to come together in a time of celebration and community”.  At the time of writing we don’t know when he will appear, or what he is going to talk about,  but we will let you know as more details come in hand.
Also sending a strong message of permaculture at the festival along with David, is the uke troubadour Charlie Mgee,  back home from his globe trotting in the northern hemisphere for six months of this year. The trip culminated in his appearance at the legendary Glastonbury Festival in July. He will hit the stage at around 4.30pm on Jan 25. Be there and ready for the mighty Vegman in action.
So, here are two (three?) good reasons to spend your January long weekend in Lexton. The festival tickets are apparently selling fast, so book early, and avoid disappointment.
