Kicking off on Valentine's Day, Babylon carries you deep into the Victorian wilderness. You'll find this festival hidden away in Stuart Mill Nature Conservation Reserve, around two and a half hours northwest of Melbourne.

It's a magical experience, where you can count on unexpected happenings, immersive installations and alternative realities. Roving performers – armed with musical instruments, decked in fantastical costumes and bearing artworks – are a major element in the program.

Meanwhile, an array of stages host a constant stream of Australian and international music acts, playing techno, house, spy-trance, electronica and ambient. Whatever mood you're in, there's a spot for you. Among 2019's artists are techno DJ Amelie Lens (Belgium), dance floor master Bjarki (Iceland), trip-hoppers Earthling (UK) and psychedelic trancer Laughing Buddha (UK), among stacks of others.

Take your own tent or van, or book a spot in a luxury bell tent in Babylon's Alpha Camp.
