The Australian festival summer of 2013/2014 is one hottest in memory and not only because of the record high temperatures across the country. Open Records artists have been getting busy at Australia’s leading events across the summer, but as you all know, we have something to look forward to in March, too.
Maitreya Festival falls just outside the definition of summer, but it’s traditionally the end of the Australian festival season (and believe us, the weather is still warm!). Taking place from March 7-10 at Sea Lake in country Victoria, Maitreya is a multi-genre, music, arts and lifestyle event that has earned a special place in the Australian party culture’s collective hearts and minds.
While best known for its trance and psychedelic programming, Maitreya has been upping the ante with its techno and house line-ups in recent years, too, with 2014’s arguably the best in the event’s history. Regular Open Records collaborators Antix/Fiord, Moodmachine, Child and Timmus are all locked down to perform, alongside names like Cid Inc, Perfect Stranger, Doesn’t Matter crew, Staunch and many more.
While we’ve still got the mighty Rainbow Serpent Festival and Earth Frequency Festival to look forward to first, it appears that one of the last parties of the festival season will ensure the goodness keeps coming right until the very end. See more and tickets at the Maitreya Festival website.
