A weekend of drum and dance. Set in the sheltered Okuti Valley, 5km from Little River on Banks Peninsula, The Drum Festival is in its' 10th year at least (we've lost count!). It is usually a laid-back vibe kind of weekend. Suitable for hippies to hipsters and everyone in between, and you don't even need good rhythm to attend.

There will be Kava Cave and a vege food available, but be prepared and BYO food. There's a a kitchen area to cook and hot showers available for $2 coin for 5 minutes. All you need to bring is your tent, suitable clothing, as it can get cold. We'll have a campfire on both nights.
