Festival has happy vibes
RETURNING for its third year is the eclectic, vibrant, nonchalant three-day open-air music and arts event that is Happy Daze Festival.
Located in the tropical hinterland of the Whitsundays, this outdoor lifestyle gathering brings together the finest Australian and international live bands, electronic musicians, DJs and visual artists.
Happy Daze focuses solely on providing just one stage – a Dream Traveller’s inspired, mind-bending custom stage.
The idea is for no sound clash or blasting two opposing styles of music at one another.
Happy Daze commits all its energy on creating an intimacy like none other.
The main stage runs from Friday to Sunday non-stop with not just music, but workshops on alternative living and culture.
With one dance floor the tribe comes together, dancing under one rhythm, uniting in the beauty together.
Not to mention, this means the festival goes all out on a full production stage with the lighting, decor and huge sound.
Organiser Natalie Barnes believes the minute they crank up the volume Friday, until the closing set Sunday night, only the finest musical entertainment will be delivered.
Happy Daze caters to an eclectic mix of live bands, electronic musicians, and DJs spanning many genres of music that makes a diverse festival whose energy is alive and vibrant.
It creates an environment of delicious food, colourful and lively décor, lighting and visuals, and a whole bunch of beautiful radiant people.
“Happy Daze Festival is aimed at everyone with live music, free workshops, and things for children (and) family camping. Bring (your) own food but there’s food and market stalls and enjoy the colourful decor. Come live in our world for a weekend,” Ms Barnes said.
Tickets are $120 and can be bought on the gate or via Moshtix.
Ticket includes 3-day camping on site from Friday lunch time until noon on Monday.
Entry is free for children under 14. For set times and a timetable of workshops visit www.happydazefestival.com.
