“We have more going on than ever before this year, a plethora of live music, DJs performance art and more revolving around a twenty four hour schedule,” said Music Director Luke Poulson. “Be it a sober wake up rave in our wonderland, a Vietnamese martial arts workshop or a late night rave with techno pumping our of a funktion 1 sound system… For new Questers or old we expect to surprise and delight you with a full weekend of new discoveries.”

Quest’s commitment to sharing ideas and skills is clearly reflected in the diverse workshop program. Beloved mainstays such as yoga and crafts will be on offer alongside some much more unusual classes like capoeira, dharma mountain martial arts and tarot readings. In addition, Quest is introducing the inaugural Razzamatazz area, a decoration station where guests can bedazzle their bodies, tie dye their clothes and jazz up their outfits, letting creative juices run wild.
