Set on a hill in rural farmland The Hills are Alive is arguably one of the best  gatherings on the summer music festival line up . A combination of  beautiful weather, great vibing people and a stellar line-up including some hilarious comedians. Such a great vibe. Amazing people. Incredible sunset. Awesome music. Lots of glitter.  Its a weekend you won’t want to forget.

Ahead of this years festival, we are hitting up bands to find out what goods they’d like to have on their Dream Rider.

RAAVE TAPES is the glittery dance-punk friend you didn’t know you needed. Smashing into 2019 with their new singlestabs’, a taste of their new EP, RAAVE TAPES are here to take the bro out of celebration.

The Hills Are Alive is a 3-day, 2-night boutique music and camping festival for good-vibing, music-loving folk. It takes place in the beautifully picturesque rolling Hills of South Gippsland near Loch Village, 90mins from Melbourne, 25mins from Inverloch, 35mins from Phillip Island. Good times with great people in a stunning location.
This year will be the eleventh incarnation of THAA. Legs eleven, we’re going to heaven.
All past ten Hills Are Alive festivals have sold out well before the event and there’s a pretty darn good chance this one will to, so get in early to secure your spot.
Tickets this year will be $219 + booking fee (cheaper if you grab an early bird ticket or know The Farmer’s Secret Password) and include free camping, BYO alcohol, four licensed bars, over 30 amazing bands and performers, field games, street cart food, chill out areas, late night DJ’s, Mr Mooyagi’s Cowraoke, Dr. Pong, the Tiny Dancer, The Mystery Bus, art installations, morning yoga, good people and much more.
