VANFEST is a regional-based music & arts festival, designed to support and strengthen youth culture and community tourism. With all the trimmings that you would expect to see on the big city stages, VANFEST proudly supports up & coming young artists, as well as bringing high calibre international touring artists to the main stage in regional NSW. After making Forbes our home for eight wonderful years, VANFEST is relocating and set to make its mark on the iconic location of Mount Panorama in Bathurst!
Spread across two days, VANFEST is the ultimate road trip getaway to set your sights on the countryside and escape the city for a weekend. There’s plenty of entertainment across the weekend including market stalls, bar activations, pop-up beach bars, VIP experiences, adrenalin rides, camping communities, and much more. VANCITY provides a pop-up community for the weekend with a centralised common area, where you can relax and enjoy the weekend with your mates. It provides multiple camping options from freestyle camping under the stars and even glamping for those who want to camp in style and comfort.
