Childhood; a time when your biggest problem was trying to explain your phone bill to your parents. Well now the Have You Heard crew (well known for their secret parties) is trying to bring back this simpler life with Summer Land – part boutique music festival, part grownup summer camp.
Similar to Return to Rio and the ol' Playground Weekender format, ticket-holders will be transported to a secret bush location for a weekend away in mid-February. Remember running back to your room and pretending to be asleep at curfew? There won't be any of that at Summer Land. Instead, you'll be able to get down at the weekend-long dance party, enjoy the pool and soak up the sunshine. All the shenanigans! It's BYO snacks and booze because that's just the mature thing to do.
Admittedly it's not all upside. Now that you're an adult, you actually have to pay for things yourself. First release camping tickets are $199 but if you're keen to relive your Year 9 camp experience, there are six or eight bed dorms available for $289 per head. Or if you're willing to fork out an extra $20 each, you can go full grownup and book out a 12 bed villa.
Ticket prices includes all activities and meals from Saturday breakfast to Sunday breakfast. As for transport, you can either drive and pay $15 for parking, or book a coach ticket and spend the whole journey singing and passing around lolly bags like a bunch of backseat bandits.
More ticketing information is available here. Gates will open 7pm Friday 12 February and close 1pm Sunday 14 February.
