Rainbow Serpent Festival 2009

Rainbow Serpent presents a music, dance, art and cultural experience you won’t find anywhere else on Earth.

Every year on Australia Day weekend people fly in from across the country and around the world for Australia’s iconic bush gathering.

Set up camp under the shade of old gums and enter a magical village created for four days of beautiful escape. This year we’re in for a jaw-dropping line up of Australian and international djs and live bands across 5 floors. Get ready for groundbreaking, foot stomping, dust raising sounds.

The arts team have been working for months. You’ll be dancing between roving performance artists, giant sculpture and light installations. When you need some energy, feast on a delicious selection of world foods, fresh coffee and fruit juice.

Punters create the action at Rainbow so get involved. Be part of forums and workshops featuring leading speakers. Explore dance, wellbeing, social issues and natural therapies with people of like mind.

It’s an event you have to see once and one you can’t resist coming back for, again and again.

The Funambulist’s Playground
The Rainbow Serpent Performers Stage has taken on a new name, welcome to the Funambulists Playground! On the menu for this year are some seriously tasty treats with a massive sideshow of circus, dance, cabaret, puppetry, street theatre and explosive fire acts over three shining days and electrifying Rainbow nights. The stage will also welcome for the first time Gypsy and Dub live bands and hosts the outdoor cinema in the wee hours too!

The Amazing Drumming Monkeys
An adorable and dynamic puppet show for kids aged 1-100yrs. The 2 monkeys (Bongo & Congo) play drums, leading audiences in songs & dances. Cute monkeys for kids! Great drumming for adults! Variety segments for all ages! And messages for the world! Back by popular demand in 2009

The Love Dusters
Miss Delecta-Rama and Pepper Rose join forces to bring you the Cancan with a difference. Everything starts out roses as they dance with glee. Unfortunately life is not always gleeful and as the music switches to something slightly grittier everything starts to fly.

Live Wire
Gorgeous cats with painted faces and green eyes will swing and do cat like trickery on a handheld gymnastics bar. Incorporating improvisation, dance, acrobatics, acro balance - these naughty cats are at risky play on their apparatus.

Oogly Sensey
Radish and Omelette presents Oogly Sensey, a roving interaction of Visual stimulation, constantly evolving as it continues to draw quirky tricks and props from a mysterious wagon. With over sized removable facial features, the characters evolve and are remixed into alternate forms. The two strange creatures merge into one character with a twist- incorporating an enormous puppet.

Enigma 4
A creative blend of gymnastics and modern contemporary dance, Enigma4 shows raw power through acrobatic prowess, in stark contrast they make use of the effeminate and elegant qualities of movement synonymous with modern contemporary dance.

Empyrean
In this stiltwalking and contorsion double act~ Languid Lionfish glide and float at different heights, rising above the crowd and sliding to the ground – ever watchful over their watery home.

Sebastian Rideaux
A 20 minute show of the finest circus skills; combining magic, juggling, tumbling, acrobatics and hand balancing.

Puzzle Dust
The Newly Deads take you into the world of two characters locked in a time warp. Destined to relive this day in a surreal dream state, these strange creatures are caught between life and death, past and present, they dance to a wedding waltz that's slightly out of tune... This multi talented duo also put together some of the most unique fire acts in Australia today. A Puzzle dust fire show is a renegade improvisation of contact and contemporary dance, physical theatre and acrobatics.

Circo Artists
Using conventions such as slapstick, clowning and post modernism they explore those funny situations we have all experienced at a party. Circo artists use The physical elements of fire, pitching, acrobatics, acro balance, with various manipulation of objects and comedy.

Pyrodynamics
This C airns based crew blends a unique style of contemporary dance, acrobatics, and a touch of theatre, highly technical fire tricks and artistic fire sculpture.

The Magic Theatre.
Delivering the finest brand new circus, cabaret, and theatrical acts of mayhem, the ladies from HHQ incorporated are back to thrill, delight and amaze. Together with Hoopy Haywee, Hoola hoop extraordinaire of Fringe fame, TJ Blaze and The Smok'n Tallulah will shake, burn, bump and grind their way through frenzy of superlicious toys and tricks.

Special Activities
"Prank-stars Ball". At the Funambulists Playground Friday Night
New to Rainbow Serpent this is an event not to be missed. Don your finest costumery, dig deep for your inner exhibitionist, get your jiggy on and rock on down to the Playground to shake a tail feather. The Funambulists present a cabaret evening of wild gypsy music, cheeky tricks and performance art at its lushest, so begin your Rainbow with a bang!

Lu’au at the Market Stage, 11am-3pm Sunday
A tropical slice of aloha, attendance guarantees you get lei’d, smeared with coconut oil and lathered in sweat. Get ready to shake your rumpa to robotik hula with 4hrs of unbridled dirty-acid-tech-electro-tom-foolery. Presented by DJ’s Heath Myers, Miyagi and Mo Ichi plus special guest Davarj providing supersonic funk fueled bass guitar accompaniment for enhanced stadium rock flavour.

Wobble n Flip at the Market Stage, 4pm Saturday
Omelette presents a balmy afternoon of wild & twisted sensory celebration, including rich sonic stimuli by Spoonbill, Bass Bin Laden and a very special show by Bassnectar, intermingled with absurd and eye-popping theatrical performances plus special treats for all!

Pool Party
Get set to splash and dunk as Rainbow's infamous Pool Party kicks off again from midday Saturday. Just a short drive into town or take the shuttle bus. With Lex, Zok, Flux, Rakehell DJs, Deefa, Andrew Dannoui and Nicholas Jouin providing the tunes.

Rainbow Games

Rainbow Serpent Charter Bus(s)

Don’t have a car to get you to Rainbow Serpent Festival? Want to take the environmentally responsible option? Want to have a few beers and still be able to get home?

Well we have the solution, and in the process you can help reduce your carbon emissions and get to and from the festival safely with no hassles.

The luxury air-conditioned bus or buses (depending on demand)will leave Federation Square (Flinders Street Melb CBD) 4pm Friday 23th January (Sharp) and take you directly to the festival site in Beaufort. It will then depart the festival site 6pm (Sharp) Monday 26th returning you to Federation Square.

Limited spaces exist (the bus sold out last year)so get in quick and secure your seat before they all go.

Please note bookings close strictly on Monday 16th January. It is your responsibility to make both departure times, no refunds can be given for people that miss the bus or change their mind.

**Important** There are no physical tickets for the bus. Please bring ID with you. Your name will be cross checked with our register.

**Also, these are tickets for the charter bus only, Rainbow Serpent Festival tickets are sold separately.

Tickets are $49 for the return trip +BF (sorry no one way trips available)

My God, Rainbow is soo soft cock these days, theres not 1 act( apart from maybe Talpa) that i want to c.
Rainbo should create another stage for the real Psy lovers, it wouldn't take anything away from the other stages it would just bring more people.

I love the magic of Rainbo Serpent Festival, just give me some musical reason to come back.

theres an easier fix stop whinging and/or stay at home!

it's all about persona preference. pesonally i don't really like alot of psy if it is predictable formulaic forget it, if it's inovative a fresh awesome. it's hard to keep psy fresh and inovative over 4 days mate a bit hard on the people think about it, banging psy = people tring to keep up = edginess, the vibe would be totally scattered and cause seperation in the crowd. much better it you keep people together in one group as long as possible then have one night of craziness! if it was too crazy to soon there would be problems with vibe by the end of the festival...thats what i reckons...

i love rainbow i like the way there isn't an over saturation of fullon psy because when it comes it has so much more impact.

rainbow isn't a psy festival, get over it!

Not much in the way of electro this year - hasn't been for a few years! Plenty of solid progressive techno tho. It's definitely one of the most interesting genres around at the moment, and it's definitely the focus genre for Rainbow this year. There are some great producers this year (Ido, Gabe, D-Nox, Beckers, Perfect Stranger, Pena, etc), and add to that good doses of minimal (Mathew Jonson), dubstep (Deadbeat), psytrance (Green Nuns, Domestic, Wrecked Machines, Talpa, Dick Trevor, many more), progressive psy (Andromeda/Chromsome), breaks (Bassnectar!), chill (Zen Lemonade, Ollie Olsen), live music (Wild Marmalade, Spoonbill).. Plus all the usual locals in the form of Sensient, Sun Control, Raptor, Ozzy, etc...

Personally I think Rainbow is one of the most diverse and forward-thinking electronic music gatherings on the planet. It certainly helped to break me out of my own narrow-minded "Psytrance-or-bust" mentality.

Wake up to ya self

You got it all wrong I never said I wanted it to be a fullon festival. From my brief post you have made up some kind of illusion im a whinger in your mind

You just fly off the handle, all negative and indeed I think you are the one who should stay home

You have no idea the amount of work I have put in to rainbow in previous years.

Just look for the 7m high fluro strobing beacon that’s where I will be, come and say hello, I think you will learn something.

I'll be travelling from Sydney and would like some companions for the journey. I've got a car (a big one) so I can take 2-3 passengers plus gear. Plan is to leave Sydney on Friday morning and leave the party on Tuesday morning. PM me if interested.
