Cairns Winter Solstice Celebration & Sustainable Lifestyle Gathering 2010

The Winter Solstice Celebration & Sustainable Lifestyle Gathering will be held from June 18-21, 2010, at Sugarbag Station in Far Nth Queensland.

We are now entering our 5th year of celebration & are very proud to announce that we will be returning to Sugarbag Station for this years gathering.

The Freeform Collective would like to take this opportunity to thank each & every individual who cast a vote in the recent "TimeOUT" awards.
We feel very honored & humbled to firstly receive a nomination into the awards, let alone winning the category for Best Festival.

We also send out a very warm thank-you to everyone, who over the last 4yrs, has shared in our vision & have either volunteered, performed or dedicated their time & energy to help create & facilitate our Winter Solstice Gathering.

We could never have sustained ourselves without you & we really do appreciate your help!

In the expanse of the Australian outdoor festival culture, Winter Solstice Lifestyle Gathering holds a special place in the hearts and minds of punters from not only Cairns, but from around the country and indeed the globe as well. The annual event, in its fourth year in 2009, was one of the region’s biggest and most creative festivals, attracting well over a hundred acts, performers, healers and artists over four days and three nights in the rugged beauty of the Atherton Tablelands. The thing about Winter Solstice is that it’s much more than a Far North Queensland event, instead being one of Australia’s premier alternative life style festivals with a strong focus on entertainment for all the ages and a holistic festival experience. Thousands of punters have been known to travel from interstate and overseas just to attend, proving it’s not only one of the region’s top music and arts events, but a global tourism drawcard as well. With a broad range of musical styles – from electronic music to live bands and solo acts – as well as roving performers, fire shows, healing areas, sustainability exhibitions and market stalls, Winter Solstice definitely deserves its spot as the winner of the Best Festival in the timeOUT Awards 2009.
