3 - 6 December 2017




Tread lightly | Feel free | Shake it loose






treadFEST is 3 days of music, celebration, unwinding, connecting, and making memories.

treadFEST is a celebration of freedom, fun and friendship. It marks a beginning and an end. It’s not the average but then neither are you.

The emphasis is on lots of music, food and drink, fresh air, and a host of cultural and sporting activities. Good clean fun plus a great party. It’s a cashless, environmentally-friendly, community-supporting space.
