Event description

Description

We wish you a merry Festmas and a Festy new year!

Festeroo is back for its’ 10th installment. Our factory has been working overtime to pump out our latest blend of homemade, fairtrade organic backyard gig mini-fest!

Our disgruntled workers have been on 12 hour back-to-back shifts, refining our signature line of DJ’s, bands, homecooked dins and summer vibes!

This time we are getting the dosh together to pay our mate’s court fines. This motley crew of youngmates and oldmates stood strong under the scorching sun, putting their bodies on the line to halt construction of the railroad to the Carmichael mine in Central Queensland.

This railroad is being made to transport 60,000,000 tons of dirty coal out of the mine per year. Will that coal be used to strengthen the Australian economy? No, it’s being carted to India to fuel power plants. Does India need this coal? No! They have recently committed to reaching a target of 77 gigawatts of solar energy by 2020

And what about the Wangan and Jangilingu peoples, whose country this railroad is being built on? They weren’t asked permission, and they aren’t being compensated for the destruction of their sacred Lands. This is colonisation still happening in 2018.

"If the Carmichael mine were to proceed it would tear the heart out of the land. The scale of this mine means it would have devastating impacts on our native title, ancestral lands and waters, our totemic plants and animals, and our environmental and cultural heritage. It would pollute and drain billions of litres of groundwater, and obliterate important springs systems. It would potentially wipe out threatened and endangered species. It would literally leave a huge black hole, monumental in proportions, where there were once our homelands. These effects are irreversible. Our land will be “disappeared”." http://wanganjagalingou.com.au/our-fight/

Entrance: $10
Dinner plate: $10 (home made, vegan, gf, low fodmaps, and freegan options!)
Drinks: $5 (alc/non-alc)
We’re asking no BYO at this event- we’re trying to raise as much cashola for FLAC as possible, cause we think they do a bloody good job.

Our current line-up;
LongBoys
karyme
Hentai Magi
Mares
DJ Anna
Face Face

There will be a quiet/safe space in the house, and a no alcohol dry area, available for anyone to take some time out and relax.

We'd like to highlight that Festeroo is an event founded on the principle of respect, that's both for people and the environment around us.
Racism/sexism/transphobia/homophobia/disrespecting property/general dickheadery are strictly no go. We want to have a fun time with you lovely people in an environment that is safe and enjoyable for all!

Festeroo would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land where we hold our festivities, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. Sovereignty was never ceded, this land will always be theirs. We pay respects to elders past, present and future.
