As winter intensifies up here in the northern half of our planet, the air down south is only getting warmer and warmer. Australia's Strawberry Fields is one of the most buzzed-about ways to revel in the summer festival season for punters in the region.
Two hundred and forty seven kilometers beyond Melbourne, deep into the New South Wales bush, is a small township called Tocumwal. Tocumwal has a population of 1,970, is home to just one primary school, and is best known for being the home of a giant, fiberglass Murray Cod. Perhaps not the most obvious place to host one of the most progressive and exciting festivals in the southern hemisphere, but Strawberry Fields, which took place November 17-19, has thrived there since 2009.
Held along the country's longest river, the Murray River, Strawberry Fields welcomes about 6,500 attendees to its dusty, eucalyptus-and-art-laden grounds. Here, disco, funk, techno, and house music emanate from small stages made largely of natural materials, which come alive at night with lights and lasers. Artists who brought the noise and kept the vibe high this year included Monolink, Nicola Cruz, Monkey Safari, Daniel Avery, Pelvis, Archie Hamilton, Tim Engelhardt, Harvey Sutherland & Bermuda, Peggy Gou, the Rush Hour 20th anniversary, and many more.
