Wanderer Festival 2023
With 40+ musos taking the stage, market stalls and a myriad food pop ups this Sapphire Coast celebration makes for a very worthy road trip.
June 09, 2023
Given its location on the Sapphire Coast (a six-hour drive south of Sydney or seven-hour trip north of Melbourne), the Wanderer Festival may require a little more travel than the leisurely stroll suggested by its name. But, it promises to deliver an excellent final destination for road trippers seeking a weekend away that's big on tunes, tasty treats and a tonne of cool market stalls.
Wanderer Festival is a three-day event held in picturesque Pambula Beach between Friday, 29 September and Sunday, 1 October. This year's genre-diverse lineup of 40+ artists include Ocean Alley, Django Django, The Jungle Giants, Thelma Plum, Spiderbait and UK indie-rock luminaries Gomez. Those looking for more than music will find it in the Wanderer Festival Big Top, which will feature gravity-defying circus cabaret courtesy of the Flying Fruit Fly Circus.
Other off-stage activations include craft markets and food stores. The former will be the place to stock up on unique hand-crafted, hand-made or hand-picked goods, while the latter will be packed with a range of stalls that focus on produce from the region and local beer, wine and spirits, as well as culinary delights from around the world.
The Wanderer Festival will run from Friday, 29 September and Sunday, 1 October 2023. For the full event program visit their website.
