Peats Ridge announce 2012 festival lineup

“”The location is gorgeous, the dickhead factor is at an all-time low and if it was any more laid back, it would probably fall over.””:—Day-Three-Peats-Ridge-Glenworth-Valley-311210 Peats Ridge Sustainable Arts and Music Festival will return to Glenworth Valley this New Year’s Eve with a distinct lack of dickheads and one very relaxed lineup.

With a focus on creating a total experience for all, Peats Ridge hosts art installations, kooky themed venues, multimedia, theatre, dance, cabaret, comedy, circus, and much, much more, all winding along the riverbank and dotted through a unique event site.

The festival also prides itself as a world leader in sustainable events and remains family orientated with a full children’s program available. The Peats Ridge experience is about much more than the music, as the festival’s founder Matt Grant told FasterLouder in 2009, “What makes a festival is when the sun goes down and the place really comes alive. You’re creating an alternate reality for people at a festival – an opportunity to step out of their everyday lives.”
