The fact it takes place in the Meredith Supernatural Ampitheatre is a fair indication of just how other-worldly the festival is.
- Tunes. There’s a feast of brilliant acts during this “3-day, 2-night, 4-D cascading audio-visual rollercoaster”.
- Nudie Run. The Meredith Gift was born out of a need to entertain the punters when a band was running late. A crowd-participation fun-run with beer as a prize, then some clever dick thought he might win more if he did it with no clothes on. Thus, the Meredith Gift was born.
- Old Class Cinema. The Ecoplex Outdoor Cinema shows retro films to punters on gum-tree log seats under a rooftop of stars and branches.
- Pink Flamingo Bar. The long-legged pink bird has been a Meredith institution since the late 90’s, when long-legged birds were all the rage. Cocktails, neon lights – it’s nightlife personified with a Miami Vice feel.
- Airbeds. Sad but true.
