Bush doofs don't come much bigger, or more colourful, than the annual Rainbow Serpent Festival. Launched in 1998 in the dusty fields surrounding Lexton, this hedonistic playground presents a global showcase of electronic music, ranging from psytrance to minimal techno. With the pandemic and bushfires quashing recent years, a return is on the cards for Easter 2023.

Alongside the mind-melting tunes and sparkling outfits, the festival invites you to explore your spiritual side through immersive art installations, workshops and otherworldly experiences. If that sounds up your alley, get your pals together for a metaphysical reawakening. Just be sure to take a few days off to guarantee your recovery.

If you can't wait til then for a trippy dose of fun, Rainbox Reunion is the event for you. The lively spirit of the Rainbow Serpent Festival is heading to Melbourne Pavilion on the Sunday, April 17, for one day of music, dance, markets and glitter.

Keep an eye on the website for 2023 tickets to be released, or nab a ticket to Rainbow Reunion and get ready for the good times to roll.
