Wide Open Space Festival 2024

Celebrating its 13th edition, the incredible Central Australia Festival will be back on, Eastern Arrernte Country from the 3rd to the 5th of May.

The WOS team invites you head to the heartland, to the incredible Tjoritja / MacDonnell Ranges, for a feast of music, arts and performance. Deeply inspired by desert culture (both traditional and contemporary) and the ancient landscape, WOS is a celebration of creativity, connection and the irrepressible human spirit!

The WOS program draws from a range of inspirations, sub-cultures and styles. Musically expect anything from cutting edge electronic sounds, banging live hip hop, to deep acoustic meditations and innovative sounds from across the globe. Live bands, DJs, producers and eclectic collectives present you with a full array of sounds from the now.

The Arts, Performance and Workshop program presents the vibrance of the desert turned to 11! Burlesque, cabaret, spoken word, panel discussions, weird dress-up theme parties, a dedicated kids space, workshops, projections, exhibitions, interactive installations and roving performance will lead you through a land of wonder.

3 stages, multiple performance and play spaces, kids space, cranking garden party, licensed bar, an ancient landscape and camping under a billion stars.
