Australia gets new remote boutique festival Rose Quartz this April

Article image by

In case you needed an extra reason to visit the arctic Eden that is Tasmania, now there’s a brand-new, super-boutique festival launching this April with a prime dance line-up.

Rose Quartz festival takes over the stunning shores of Lake Pedder – atop the Frankland Ranges in the southwest of Tasmania, 2.5 hours’ drive from Hobart – on 1 and 2 April.

Heading the line-up is a roster of Melbourne and Tasmania’s finest electronic lords, with a plan to turn Tasmania into the “Cold Ibiza”, like Roland Tings, analogue house boss András, “audio druid” Michael Ozone, Otologic, Bronze Savage, Matthew Brown and many more (which you can find at the website).

The organisers are describing it as, “a sensory escape to the wilderness of Tasmania. Three days and two wild nights. Nature, scenery, isolation.” And the good news for those accustomed to the finer things is that there’ll also be luxury lodge accommodation available (or camping if you’re equipped for the cold), and a food and drink selection that focuses on fine Tasmanian produce.

There are only 500 tickets on sale for the whole event, and you can secure one of them from $200 per person (with camping) at the website. More info over here.
