Rainbow Serpent Festival has been an unmissable fixture on Australia’s annual festival calendar for over 20 years. The internationally renowned gathering has developed into one of the most highly regarded music and arts festivals on the planet. These days the epic five day multifaceted eruption of dance, colour, expression and celebration attracts people from all corners of the earth who converge on Lexton in Western Victoria in January for an unforgettable, unique Australian experience.
Join us in January 2020 for a celebration of community, culture, unity and diversity. Experience world class producers, DJs and bands, explore awe inspiring art, sculpture and nourish your mind and body with inspiring speakers and workshops.
The name Rainbow Serpent is distinctly Australian, coming from the Dreamtime creation story told by the traditional owners of the land. Dreamtime stories often vary between aboriginal tribes, however the story of the Rainbow Serpent is special as it is one of the few common to all.
Rainbow Serpent Festival would like to acknowledge that this festival is on the Traditional Countries of Dja Dja Wurrung and Wadawurrung Peoples. We pay respect to their Ancestors, Elders past and present, along with today’s descendants that carry on the living culture and ensure its survival for future generations.
