A brand new 5-day, mountain high tenting and dance music competition has arrived


A new 5 day camping and dance music festival has been announced with the cool location ‘5 hours north of Sydney, 6 hours south of Byron Bay’ which would place it somewhere near Newcastle if our Google Maps skills are halfway decent .

The pitch for the Skydance Festival is also pretty solid, offering “fresh mountain air, panoramic views and one of the most unique dance floors that nature has to offer”. that sounds right up our alley.

Those who find themselves on this unique natural dance floor will be throwing shapes from Thursday 3rd November to Tuesday 8th November 2022, with a day to build up before and a day to chill before departing.

In terms of lineup, it offers a really wide range of local house and techno DJs over the three days of music.

You can catch Something Else Records’ Dave Stuart as upstart Tangela, as well as enduring party starters Mantra Collective and many others. Better still are curated stages from various Sydney promoters like SASH, Be Avant Garde, Roots and more.

The lineup so far is best found on Skydance Instagram!

Those who want to move on would be better off digging into Pre and the first release and dusting off while the second release progresses quickly.
