Over the three days and two nights – February 17-19 2017 – Gaytimes returns to the mountain top at picturesque Lake Mountain Alpine Resort. Gaytimes 2017 will be a boutique festival with a strictly limited capacity of fewer than 1000 punters.
Gaytimes is a boutique music, arts and camping festival for the whole lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and gender diverse community. It is an inclusive festival that welcomes all the colours of the rainbow, and their friends.
As a social enterprise, Gaytimes hopes to provide a platform for emerging queer and gender diverse artists to be seen and heard. Gaytimes isn’t just about music, either. It is a weekend getaway of performance art, visual art, light projections, community, self-expression, sexuality, yoga and more.
We pride ourselves on curating an eclectic and diverse lineup that represents people from a broad range of identities, backgrounds and music styles. We aim to create a safe space for LGTBIQ people to come together and be themselves.
In 2017, they’re making a few changes to ensure everyone feels comfortable including: providing gender neutral toilets, extra camping areas, more volunteers and more live acts. There is also a strict zero tolerance policy towards harassment and any anti-social, homophobic, transphobic or racist behaviour.
Never fear! Gaytimes 2017 will again be offering glamping for those who want to come along – and do it in a bit of style. A designated glamping partner will pitch your tent for you and pack it down, and you’ll receive your own bedding and linen, even fairy lights.
