Held over 10 rollicking days from mid-January, this festival is billed as the biggest music festival in the Southern Hemisphere. Recent stats show the festival featured more than 700 performers across 120 venues, with around 2800 single events entertaining some 55,000 visitors!! That's an awful lot of boot-scooting!
Many acts are free, otherwise most tickets range from $5 to $50 (see the festival website). The Festival Express bus ($5/20 for a day/entire festival) connects the various venues and most hotels.
