Splendour In The Grass is getting a competitor or sorts in the camping festival game with the announcement of a mysterious new event, Camp Unknown, set to take place just outside of Sydney from July 24th – 26th this year.
Presented by promoters Have You Heard Events, many details about Camp Unknown remain scarce. According to its website though, the event will take place in the New South Wales bushland, 90 minutes out of Sydney.
It will be a weekend “packed with fun activities, a great crowd, unbelievable scenery and a few more surprises along the way” and the exact location, for now at least, remains “unknown”.
Have You Heard are behind such other events as their Yacht Raft Parties and social clubs which featured a slew of local DJs as well as 2014 event, The Beach – a similar getaway to an undisclosed location for a weekend of beach partying.
They have confirmed to Music Feeds that, like their other events, there will be a music component to Camp Unknown, with a lineup made up of “some of the best underground DJs”. However, in keeping with the secret nature of Camp Unknown, all those names will be kept secret until punters arrive on site.
Advertised activities so far include abseiling, archery and canoeing. Meals are included and there will also be a Christmas in July-themed dinner party. “All you will need to bring is a sleeping bag, pillow, snacks, alcohol, a little trust and a sense of adventure,” explain organisers.
First release tickets for Camp Unknown start at $2200 + booking fee, that’s $275 per person for an eight-person cabin. Transportation to the event and all meals are included. According to organisers, this secret adventure weekend away has less than 200 spaces available and the only way of attending is by booking a cabin.
