Strawberry Fields Changes Location

With now less than a month until festival season kicks off with Strawberry Fields, yesterday the organisers announced via their Facebook that the festival would be changing locations this year.

Though the dense bush has been home to The Wildlands for many years now, the change of scenery moves the festivities right to the banks of the Murray River. It’s not far from where it has been, still right next to Tocumwal NSW, just near Albury Wodonga on the border between Victoria and New South Wales – so don’t worry about a huge change of direction in getting there. The most obvious change the new location will have is the amazing addition of swimming! Strawberry takes place in a very hot place at a very hot time, with past festivals recording temperatures around 40°C, and so swimming will no doubt become a huge part of The Wildlands’ already extensive culture.

Do I hear some of you saying, “Man, but I loved the old location so much, the dense bushland was sick!” Have no fear. You’ve got the choice of camping either in the open plains closest to the water at the Southern Savannah, or under the eucalypts of the Northern Forests. There’s something for everyone!

Tickets to Strawberry have almost run out. At the time of the writing of this article, there are only 113 tickets left. So make sure you jump on tickets here asap
