Fest la frog just got more sustainable…
..because we’re not using any ferries, barges or big old buses for punters or bands
In fact the entire festival has been moved to Brunswick.
It was a difficult decision to make. The main factors that stopped us from using French Island THIS year are..
- our excessively wet summer (think plague-like mosquito levels and muddy terrain),
- the challenging logistics of having a festival on an island & financial pressures (mainly ferry/barge stuff)
All existing ticket holders will have their money full refunded.
It is a bit sad but there are also a few upsides to the move… There’ll instead be an awesome one-day party that’ll be cheaper, easier to get to, still held at a beautiful location, and most of the bands are moving with us, including The Red Eyes, Rapskallion, Rosie Burgess Trio, Hugo (Rap News), Baron Samadhi, Love Lawrence Teskey, The Adventure Spirit and more!
Our keepin it local version of Fest la Frog will be held from 10.30am-10pm on Saturday the 9th of April, on the Village Green at CERES Environment Park in Brunswick East. There’s plenty of room so bring all your friends!!!
We’ll still be offering vego discounts, sustainability workshops, solar brewed & other eco bevwahs, sticking to the zero waste policies & encouraging locals to come by pushy’s or public transport.
Melbourne people: For Northsiders it’ll be keepin’ it local… & it’ll be a naughty north foray for south siders…. all of us creating even less CO2 to do it.
Phillip Islanders and those from Corinella: we are truly sorry to not be able to do the festival at French Island this year.. Come to the city.. Couch Surfing mebbe?
