WA’s Very Own Desert Festival Is Back So Fire Up The Group Chat

You might not be able to go to Burning Man or even Splendour in the Grass this year, but WA is in the clear so far which means Wave Rock Weekender is going to be back for the Queen’s Birthday long weekend from 25 to 28 September.

2020 marks 15 years of Wave Rock Weekender and to say they’ve got it down to a fine art is an understatement. If you haven’t managed to make it to one, expect epic music, camping, booze, food, yoga, dancing and, of course, the magical Wave Rock. 

If you’re just here for the music, scroll down to see the full line up which includes a huge range of amazing WA artists like Pond, San Cisco, Psychedelic P*rn Crumpets, Stella Donnelly and so many more.

When you’re legs just can’t dance anymore, make your way to the 24-hour cinema, unwind with some yoga, jump in the natural salt pool, grab a drink and check out one of the amazing projections or a late night district, or just stop and take in your surrounds—festival locations don’t come much better than this. 

The festival organisers have plans in place so the weekend can run smoothly whether WA is Phase 4 or 5 of our COVID road map, so there’s no need to stress about it being called off. All you need to do is grab your tickets when they go on sale at 9am on Wednesday 12 August.

A three-night camping pass will set you back $317.55 plus booking fee, and if you can’t be bothered setting up your own tent, you can always add a tent and mattress for $85. Too easy, right?
