Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

AUS­TRALIA’S 67th largest town will start to take shape this week when con­struc­tion be­gins on Wood­for­dia, the 500 acre site that Wood­ford Folk Fes­ti­val calls home each year.

The self-con­tained pop-up vil­lage will wel­come more than 2000 artists, per­form­ers and pre­sen­ters; 8000 campers; and about 125,000 peo­ple for the 33rd an­nual fes­ti­val from De­cem­ber 27 to Jan­uary 1.

When com­plete, there will be 25 stages, 200 shops, 60 cafes and food ven­dors, 14 bars, chill-out ar­eas, a creche, gen­eral stores, med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties well as state-of-the-art water and waste­water treat­ment sys­tems, re­cy­cling sta­tions and com­post fa­cil­i­ties.

This year the site fea­tures more in­fra­struc­ture in­no­va­tion than ever be­fore in­clud­ing new sealed roads through­out the sea­son camp­site, en­sur­ing a dust-free ex­pe­ri­ence and new camp­ing op­tions in­clud­ing glamp­ing teepees and dome tents.
