Rainbow Serpent Festival 2021

Online Streaming Event

While our festival site and crew heal, and with the uncertainty shrouding the previous year, we are taking a break from our usual event format. However, the festival site, our home, needs love. It’s been hurt. It’s been deserted. It misses you all.

So we return to Lexton, to stream from the Rainbow Serpent Festival site. This stream is unlike all the others. It is uniquely Rainbow in its heart and soul. It tells a story. A tale of the land; Of destruction and resurrection; Of reconciliation and healing.

This is an offering of everything we love about Rainbow Serpent Festival as we walk forward with courage and evolve with renewed hope.

Gather your crew and join us….

We dive deep into the origins of the Rainbow Serpent dreaming, told by Traditional Custodians of Arnhem Land Larry Giririwiwi and family, accompanied by dances and a special Smoking Ceremony to heal the land.

Music makes the world go round and the celebration come to life. Rainbow’s favourite international and local DJ’s join us for 24 hours of thumping dub, glitch techno and trance. Full line up coming soon.

Rainbow Serpent would not be complete without tasty visual treats to delight the senses. Meet us online at The Chill Stage to see what’s happening.
