Into The Wilderness

Drift presents …Into the Wilderness, a family-friendly day of live music, performance, participatory workshops and activities at Balnarring’s Emu Plains Reserve. Fun, free and immersive, this event will feature music from Pierce Brothers, The Grogans, Hayley Mary, Andy Golledge, Bumpy, Nicky Bomba, Stiff Richards, Time Machine, Polarize, Hayden Calnin, President Roots, NinchFest DJs and more across two music stages.

Into the Wilderness also features the Little Palais Circus tent, filled with circus, physical theatre and comedy, and a makers’ market lovingly curated by the good folks at Emu Plains Market / Untold Events Co showcasing the best in local art, craft and design. The Mornington Peninsula has long been known as a destination for gourmet food and wine, and this event aims to showcase some of the best of the region’s food and beverage offerings.

As dusk falls, Emu Plains will light up with colourful light installations from Playable Streets and Lantasia Lights, blending traditional lantern design, sculpture and illustration to create luminous pieces of art, courtesy of The Lanternist.

Into the Wilderness is supported by the Federal Government through the Building Better Regions Fund.
