Inn·er Var·nika

/Djargurd Wurrung Country, Victoria, within 3 hours from Melbourne/

1. An independent outdoor music festival, strictly limited tickets.

2. A three-day event dedicated to devoted music enthusiasts and artists whose only aim for the weekend will be to create a community of dancers whilst also providing a sojourn for the soul.

3. Carefully selected guests within a specially selected rural location, will steer and sound out a platform for catharsis and freedom of expression by way of some solid thump – a warm and very inviting thump, a soulful thump.

4. Every aspect, from sound to setup will be thought out to ensure the festival is an all-inclusive, environmentally neutral and a musically blissful affair.

Eg. "Music is an essential, elemental and a simply fundamental way of warming your Inner Varnika”

Please do not catch the bus (or attend the festival) if you feel sick, are showing symptoms of Covid-19, have a confirmed case of Covid-19, are a confirmed close contact, or are awaiting test results. The bus provider undertakes rigourous sanitising measures to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission in its vehicles.

If a bus service does not reach 50% of capacity, it may be cancelled. But don’t fret – we will refund you and inform you with plenty of time to make other arrangements.

Ensure that you arrive at least 30 minutes before your departure time to allow for your baggage to be searched and placed on the bus and for your tickets to be processed.

The bus will not wait if you are late. No refunds will be given if you miss the departure time.

Seating is not allocated and will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Please pack as light and practical as you can. There will be room for two large suitcases or an equivalent amount of luggage per person. We understand you may need to bring camping gear, but please do your best to pack smart and light!

The limit for each passenger taking the bus is two six packs (or 12 cans of beer, cider or premixed) OR a 2L cask of boxed red or white wine. Any alcohol in excess of this limit will be confiscated and not returned.

We only sell bus tickets online, so make sure you inform your mates if you want to travel together. They will sell out quickly.

Stocking everything from 8 person tents to eskys and card tables, you can pre-book items now knowing they’ll be on hand when you arrive.
