Wide Open Space Festival May 2020 Central Australia 3 day event
If you’re looking for a place to get away from it all then dip into Central Australia and take in Wide Open Space Festival. The festival isn’t one of your typical one-day extravaganzas, the enigmatic three-day event took last year off to refocus but is back in 2020 offering a broad range of music acts as well as stimulation for the body, mind, and soul.
Wide Open Space will run from Friday 1st May to Sunday 3rd May in the MacDonnell Ranges at Ross River Resort which is a scenic hour’s drive from Alice Springs. You’d be hard pressed to find a more diverse line-up of music, arts and performance as the festival is deeply inspired by the area in which it’s located and the traditional and contemporary desert culture that has its roots in the ancient landscape.
The program is rich and diverse; expect cutting edge electro and bouncing live hip hop as well as deep acoustic meditations. There’s a vast array of sounds drawing from a range of tastes, inspirations and sub-cultures including live bands, DJs, producers and collectives. That’s just the music, Wide Open Space also offers a whole range of activities in its Arts, Performance and Workshop program. If you want to experience something different then take your pick from spoken word, panel discussions, burlesque, cabaret, and extravagant dress-up parties. There’s a dedicated kids space, workshops, projections, exhibitions, and interactive installations to take in.
Wide Open Space is more than just a three-day festival, take yourself away for a celebration of creativity, connection, and the human spirit.
