GLOW Fest is a circus arts and lifestyle gathering, held in the stunning beachside location of Crescent Head on the mid north coast of NSW. It returns to Waves Campground for its second year on the 11-15 August 2022.
Enjoy 4 full days of camping, flow arts, circus, dance, burlesque, fire twirling, yoga, juggling, body movement, upskilling, learning, participating in workshops, making new friends, watching live performances and just relax in nature with our complete safe and supportive environment.
We welcome everyone with open arms regardless your background, sex, race, age, religion or performer status, we love our LGBTQIA+ community.
It kicks off with a spectacular GLOW party on Thursday night, so bring your LED toys! Friday through Sunday is jam-packed with daytime workshops, while the nights are filled with fire spinning circles and specially curated performances by headlining facilitators as well as the chance for attendees to jump up and offer their own artistic contribution. Saturday is family day, with extra kids activities and entertainment.
Take some time to appreciate the beautiful site on which GLOW Fest is held, and see what other magical encounters you'll have... contribute to an artwork in the Nad Rads chill space, watch our resident artists working on their own pieces, jam it out with our local DJs or join in the fun of our roving entertainers. Waves Campground is directly across from Delicate Nobby and its renowned surf beaches, where early risers can enjoy a yoga session as the sun comes up.
What sets GLOW Fest apart from many other festivals is its inclusivity. Tickets remain at affordable prices in return for 1 x 4-hour volunteer shift from each attendee - promoting a sense of community and collaboration in creating this wonderful space. Attendees that prefer to relax and take time out can simply purchase a Play Pass to surpass this requirement.
GLOW Fest is a drug and alcohol-free event, and is suitable for people of all ages, from hobbyist to pro. The GLOW Fest ethos is Community, Participation, Respect, Consent & Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
