The fifth instalment of UNIFY will take place on the new site just five kilometres down the road from its birth place the Recreation Reserve and football field, in Tarwin Lower, South Gippsland, a cruisy two-hour drive from Melbourne. The new home of UNIFY is set across sprawling farm land with bush on one side and stunning views of the hills on the other. Surrounded by lush greenery, the festival site is only a 15-minute drive from the pristine blue ocean in neighbouring Venus Bay. There’s a lot of exciting additions to UNIFY 19, including a new early access option to beat the crowds by camping onsite a day earlier. This year will see the roll out of pre-pitched camping options which includes pre-set up scout tents, bell tents and even canvas lodges – more details to come on those! Kartent will be back with their 100 percent recyclable cardboard tents for two, for the eco conscious. For the first time ever, there will also be the option to bring a campervan on site. With more room on the site, UNIFY will increase its onsite services. 2019 will see the roll out of an improved entry system and larger campsite, complete with Unisex, Male and Female toilet options… and lots of them. There will also be increased community resources across the campsite (security, The Lighthouse, UNITY Crew) and a Corner Store for you to stock up on items that may have been forgotten. Most importantly – there will be more days, more people, more music, more food, more fun!
