THE HANGAR & SIDESHOW AREA (OPEN FROM 4PM)
The Hangar Sideshow area & site activations within the Hangar is not just a stage & venue, behind the spinning neon 3D projections & giant neon lettering of the front gate it's truly more like a mini festival (a great way to enjoy some sweet festival vibes in a safe environment in these event restricted times!) // The site contains all the classic festi vibe stuff; a cool bar & delicious food, gelato, coffee & hot bevs by Retro Kombi & The Gnarly Bus. The sideshow brings a taste of the wild & wacky side of the classic festival experience. Curated by Cindy Doolan of The Other Empire (the brains behind This That Festival's "The Other" area & Lost Paradise Festival's "Love Letter Post Office" & "Mini Bike Mafia" to name just a few of her recent activations) The Hangar Sideshow features a number of walk thru, pop up interactive fun activations & activities, some you can just sit & watch others that welcome you to get up & involved.
The Booty Parlour
The House of Olor - Olor is a pink elephant, with a joystick you control his vacuum trunk to
pick up a coloured ball - what message will you find inside?
