Just touching base to let you all know we are working like crazy behind the scenes to produce the Rainbow vibes you love next weekend. We are conscious that information is slow coming out but want to ensure every last duck is lined up before releasing any more details.

The entire crew has been motivated by your messages of support and the overwhelming love we're feeling from the Rainbow tribe. We can’t thank you enough 🙏💕

We hope you enjoy our first lineup announcement, we’ll have further additions in the coming days. If you already have an RSF2020 e-ticket, this gain entry to both of our events. You don’t need to do anything, your e-tickets for both new events will arrive in your inbox.
Urban Edition - 26 January - 12pm - 10pm
Tickets on sale soon $140+BF
18+ only
Regen Edition - 10th April - 13th April 2020

Proceeds from the this event will be donated to aid the recovery of the recent bushfires around Victoria.

Venue details cannot be released for another few days due to administrative requirements. It may be a different home but we promise to deliver the best Rainbow flavour possible.
Joining us is a stellar lineup of favourite artists over multiple stages, roaming performers and we can’t forget all the market bizarre culinary treats.

More details for the Easter Regen edition will follow in the coming weeks and tickets will go on sale soon. ---- We cannot explain in words the magnitude these circumstances have had on our staff, organisation and community although it’s nothing in comparison to the issues faced around the country. There is an intricate ecosystem of small businesses who rely on Rainbow for wages and income. The disruptive effects of this shift are far-reaching. We will be supporting everyone as best as we can.

But events don’t put on themselves, we need you, our patrons, to support us now more than ever. Buy a ticket if you haven’t got one already. Tell your friends and get them along. We’ve heard many say they can’t make it to one of the new events and plan on not asking for a refund - thank you. Keep your eyes on our Facebook page for a special announcement for you all!
For those wanting a refund, updating attendee names, to transfer your tickets to RSF2021 and all other ticketing questions, there is too much to include in this post. Please visit bit.ly/NewtixInfo

Firstly, we’d like to thank the Rainbow community for your incredible patience during these stressful times. No one could have predicted the intensity of the fires we’ve witnessed around the country over the last two weeks and it’s been a sobering experience for us all. .. During this time, our key stakeholders have been busy using their expertise where they are needed the most. Particularly, the CFA. We’re certain you understand that we’ve not wanted to divert their attention from the ongoing situation to meet with us and this has rightfully caused delays with getting the necessary people together. .. It hasn’t been an easy decision to know what is the right path forward - as much as we all love RSF, the health and safety of patrons and crew is our number one priority. This is key to any decisions made and of course, we always consider our impact and commitment to the land and the local community. .. This morning we undertook a meeting and inspection onsite with the CFA, Victoria Police, Forest Fire Management Victoria and Pyrenees Council staff. Due to a number of safety concerns stemming from the fire that affected the site and the wider bushfire impacts across the country, it was agreed that holding RSF over the scheduled weekend in Lexton simply isn’t the right thing to do. .. But the good news is Rainbow Serpent Festival 2020 will still go ahead!! In chaos lies opportunity and we invite our extended Rainbow family to join us for two very special events we feel will honour the gravity of the fires, assist the local community and give us double the opportunity to celebrate the Rainbow Serpent spirit. .. The two events will be treated as Rainbow Serpent Festival 2020 with your tickets gaining entry to both. .. Event 1 - Rainbow Serpent Festival - Urban Edition
Sunday, January 26 - Melbourne CBD .. Event 2 - Rainbow Serpent Festival 2020 – Regen Edition
Easter Weekend, Lexton Victoria .. Check Facebook or our website for further information.

Our home may be blackened but our hearts are full of gratitude for the incredibly brave CFA volunteers, other emergency services and our site crew who battled and managed to save much of our vital infrastructure and site buildings in Friday’s bushfire. .

As you can see from this photo below taken on Saturday, there is damage to the festival site but it could have been so much worse. .

Our sincere hope is that the festival can go ahead in some form over the January long weekend. .

We have temporarily halted ticket sales while we assess the damage. We appreciate your patience as it will take a week to consult with experts and our stakeholders about the format of the 2020 festival. Of primary concern is your safety and that of the crew. .

Our thoughts are with the Lexton, Beaufort, surrounding communities and the many other communities in Australia who have suffered much larger losses than ours. .

Thank you to everyone for your generous offers of support. Please sign-up on the link below to show your interest and we’ll be in touch in the coming days with further information on how you can help. .

In the meantime, we wish to stress again, please do not travel to the site or area until further notice as safety is still a concern. .

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we have meetings with stakeholders over the next week. In the meantime, try to not speculate; we’ll let you know the outcome as soon as we do. .

We will issue a longer statement in the next 24 hours but, in the meantime, want to express our gratitude for the brave CFA volunteers and our site crew who battled and saved much of the festival's infrastructure on Friday night, when this photo was taken. Heroes all 🙏 .

Right now, we wish to focus on our neighbours and the local community, who have lost so much more than we. Homes, stock, livelihoods and local wildlife. Our hearts are breaking for them 💔 . .. We're coming up with a plan for the Rainbow community to help so please standby for announcements. .. We appreciate all of your offers of assistance but ask, again, that nobody travel to the area. Fire is still active and safety is a concern. .. We love you tribe. Thanks for your amazing support 💗

The warning for the town of Lexton was downgraded to ‘watch and act’ at 4am after they were issued an evacuation order last night. It was a long and scary night for residents and we’re just so grateful that everyone is safe 🙏 .

This does not mean the situation is over. The region is still in danger with a huge fire still active, trees falling and visibility low from smoke. Road closures are in place and under no circumstances should anyone travel to the area. .

The fire has currently burned through 2,000 hectares including parts of the festival site but the damage to our essential infrastructure has been minimal in the context of things. We are assessing the damage this morning and will continue keeping you informed with updates when we have more information. .

We’d like to thank you all for your support, messages and posts that have shown the true nature of our Rainbow tribe- caring, compassionate and full of concern for the local communities that have given us so much over two decades. To see your love for Lexton, Beaufort and surrounds has warmed the hearts of everyone at Rainbow HQ <3

You may have heard there is a current bushfire emergency near the Rainbow site and an expected wind change may push the fire toward the Lexton township and many local families we’ve grown to love later this evening. Our primary concern is for the safety of our local communities, wildlife and the incredibly brave CFA units currently battling to protect them all. .

We will keep you updated with more information as it comes to light. .
Meanwhile, stay safe Lexton and Beaufort❤️ .

It's a terrifying time for our nation with half the country already burning and the rest on high alert today. In Melbourne and around Victoria, we're bracing for the hottest December day on record.

Extreme heat can kill and we want you all to take care of yourselves today. 💥 If you live in a bushfire prone area, implement your fire plan NOW 💥Keep yourselves and your pets indoors and drink litres of water. 💥Keep your house cool- close all windows and curtains now. 💥Check on your elderly neighbours and relatives. 💥Put water out in your garden for native animals.

Stay safe, tribe 💗

Don’t even think about putting Sweden’s La Fleur into a box. She’s had too many twists and turns in her career to be edged into any corner but she’s making her mark as one of the most exciting talents in house and techno.
This will be La Fleur's first appearance at Rainbow, so please make her welcome and blow her mind with most outrageous costumery she'll ever see on any dancefloor.

Rainbow 2019 saw a reduction in waste from the year before but we still have a long way to go before we achieve our goal of zero waste . This requires our collective team effort. Start planning now for how you can reduce your impact at Rainbow, including: - Buy, borrow or even rent good quality camping gear you are unlikely to leave behind
- Bring a durable refillable water container
- BYO cups, crockery, utensils and reusable straws and use our wash stations for cleaning
- Remove food packaging at home and place food in reusable containers.

Remember, If you can pack it in, then you can pack it out!

We'll be announcing a host of fresh initiatives in the next few weeks to help us achieve our goal of zero waste. Keep an eye out for announcements and, meanwhile, tell us about any ideas you may have to help us help the environment.

@infectedmushroom is world-renowned for their sonic innovations, genre-defying sound and unrivalled production quality. Widely recognised as pioneers of psytrance, over the years Infected have demonstrated their ability to not only break the rules but create their own rulebook entirely.

There are no words for how excited we are to present an Infected Mushroom old school sunrise set at RSF2020. Which of their tracks are you hoping to hear during this very special performance?

Ashley Burchett, better known as Ø [Phase], is a minimal techno producer from London whose stark, driving tracks are concerned with themes of time and space and fit squarely into the lineage of warehouse-ready British techno.
And that means one thing for RSF2020 attendees: prepare yourselves for thumping basslines with intricate layers creating a banging dancefloor!

Sonic author, Grouch, is joined on stage by an international cast of impresarios to embellish his glitchy dub and bass compositions with horns, strings, percussion and vocals. Defined by no single genre, Grouch in Dub is a maelstrom of melody that takes audiences on a high-energy journey of funked-up frequencies.

It's the bands first appearance at Rainbow and we think they deserve an extra special stage and time. Where and when do you think they should play?

Megapixel prefers to keep her sets versatile and she can be heard laying down funky and fun sets for the daytime or a more serious, twisted and solid sound for the night time setting. With her passion and skill for DJing, she continues to grow and you can expect her floor shaking sets to take you on an enchanting psychedelic journey every time.

We might be missing our Rainbow home, but the flags are out in Beaufort and Lexton and we’re feeling the love. The Rainbow spirit continues on.

Don’t forget to spread that Rainbow spirit as we take over the city. There is something for everyone this weekend.

We’re sure you’ve all been wondering what has happened to our Urban Edition venue announcement and further details following the bushfire and postponement of our regular Rainbow gathering in Lexton this year.

Despite the best efforts of our hard working crew and exhausting every avenue, we have not been able to get the required approvals to secure a suitable venue for our one day Urban Edition of RSF2020.

While we progressed to the final stages for a couple of venues, with contracts being prepared in one case, for reasons out of our control all options ultimately fell through.

Eventbrite will automatically refund all RSF2020 tickets purchased through the Eventbrite platform. Refunds will be processed this week, please allow 10-14 business days for the funds to appear on your statement.

You guys have done an amazing job, and should be so proud of yourselves. The comms has been excellent, and I think everyone understands you’ve done your absolute best!

Hats off team! This would of been no easy feat at all. Big respect! sheeesh!!! Welcome to Thornbury Full venue? That is going to be SO MUCH FUUN!!!!! Gonna be a dope weekend! See yall out there 🙂

That’s a shame but looking forward to the next

See you there, mangs! 🍄🌈🐍💖

RSF you are AMAZING to pull this off in any format. Come on peeps, every cent counts. Let's help them through this rough patch ❤️

Rainbow gets rescheduled due to bushfires to be replaced with rainy Melbourne… Go figure

Great work pulling this together ❤️

Will the infected mushroom show be live or dj set?

Scotty welcome to thornbury…

Thanks for doing your best guys! I know it would have been such a marathon effort to get this far! Looking forward to next year!! Bigger and better 😻😻😻

I didn’t buy a ticket for this years RSF, but I am so glad you have added the options to donate to all parties involved, especially the community of Lexton, that will suffer greatly from the financial losses the Festival brings to their town and residents. They have supported Rainbow for so long, and it’s just as devastating for them.

Well done to the Rainbow crew for the amazing job of re-working it, and for the decision to refund the tickets entirely. This would be very detrimental for the Festivals future sustainability, and I hope you don’t have to stop putting this event on, due to the financial implications of this horrible situation.

I trust the Rainbow community will be just as generous in donations to RSF to help rebuild and recover. We got you!💪🏼🌈❤️

So many choices! haha, this is awesome, great work legends!

Where can we find tickets to welcome to rainbow after dark?? Can only see the day party ones on eventbrite <3 <3

Lots of love to you all. It must be tough times, but it’s great to see you have the support of the community..

See you Sunday 😍🌈

Ok….. it’s been tough for you all trying your very best to make the best out of a terrible situation…. anyone else trying to make a new festival on the fly would have failed in a heat beat…. to the rainbow organising crew just wanted to send you much love… hold your heads high!!! You tried your very best!!!
Much peace and love!! Xxx

So very sorry for everyone. We will support any new version of what’s on offer Rainbow style ❤️

You guys must be soooo exhausted' I feel for you all! This was going to be my first Rainbow but I look forward to a rebirthed 2021! Please organisers take care of yourselves, this must be so hard on all levels for you!

Thank you to the entire RSF team for trying your best to make this happen despite the unfortunate circumstances.

Hey I’ve emailed rainbow about me transferring to 2021 and still have not heard back and would like so know if it’s been accepted so I don’t miss out of getting a refund please reply shortly.

Do people who purchase tickets in 2019 automatically get a refund now as well or do we still have to fill out the form?

This has been a tough time for you all. Great work pulling all this together at such short notice. You are true legends.
Any news as to whether Christian Smith will still be playing??
🌈💕

Rainbow is our community our second home! So whatever the decision we will support you! Thank you all for trying so hard to make Sunday happen! See you at Easter 😘 Brianna Harmony Doble 🌈

Is the Easter rainbow still happening? Rainbow Serpent Festival

Thank you for all your hard work, however I do have a question, I am not sure what’s going on but I haven’t received any ticket for the urban event, do I use my existing ticket or will one get sent to me? I have filled out the appropriate forms

What info do you need in the email requesting refunds for hardcopy ticket? Thanks

Can't imagine how hard it must be trying to reshuffle everything, glad there's still some parties happening we're looking forward to it!

The rainbow regular community is absolutely behind you. Whatever you manage to put together in these circumstances will be amazing cos we will all come together and make it so!

Can’t wait!

I bought my ticket using PayPal/ Savings account so therefore can’t put in the last 4 digits of my credit card as prompted on the refunds form. Can anyone get back to me before Monday please? Been waiting a few days for an answer.

I'm not worried. I know you'll look after us. 🥰

What's the state of work for ticket? I don't think I've seen any emails or posts covering that yet. Sorry if I've missed it!

Good luck, much love

Back on our Rainbow home in Lexton, the Regen Edition of RSF2020 will be a more intimate affair with some changes to the formatting and layout to respect the land.

It wouldn’t be Rainbow without music and we’ll have an array of international and local artists from the original line up on offer, the market bazaar and a large amount of Arts and Village content.

There will be a strictly limited number of tickets on sale. This event is expected to sell out so the only way to secure your place is to keep your current RSF2020 ticket.

I can't make it. I've got an anniversary I'd rather be at anyway. Balls to the wall…

Hi guys!

If we decide to keep our current rainbow 2020 ticket for Easter: but closer to the time are unable to attend, will we be able to change the name closer to April? Or will the cut off still be January 20th?

Thanks!

Awesome work 🙂

I’ve emailed rainbow about me transferring to 2021, and still have not heard back. I would like so know if it’s been accepted so I don’t miss out of getting a refund please reply shortly.

How do we organise the refund? Ive sent 2 emails to 2 different addresses with no response from any of the emails.

Rainbow Serpent Festival what’s the go for those with volunteering tickets?

Apologies again everyone for the delay. It’s been a hectic task bringing all the finer points together. As you can imagine, there is still a lot to do but we’ll keep announcing information as quickly as we can. As soon as we know, you’ll know.

Remember, if you already have an RSF2020 e-ticket, this will carry over for both of our events. You don’t need to do anything, your e-tickets for both new events will arrive in your inbox.

Urban Edition – 26 January – 12pm – 10pm
New ticket sales – $140 + BF
This event is for patrons aged 18+ only

Tickets will be going on sale ASAP.

Proceeds from the one-day event will be donated to aid the recovery of the recent bushfires around Victoria.

Venue details cannot be released for another few days due to administrative requirements. It may be a different home but we promise to deliver the best Rainbow flavour possible.

Joining us is a stellar lineup of favourite artists over multiple stages, roaming performers and we can’t forget all the market bazaar culinary treats.

We hope you enjoy our first lineup announcement. Further additions in the coming days.

Regen Edition – Lexton, Easter Weekend
Friday 10th April – Monday 13th April 2020
New ticket sales will be available from $300 + BF
Usual Rainbow policies, families welcome.

With the full support of our stakeholders and the local community, we are pleased to announce this event will take place at Rainbow’s home site in Lexton. While we will still need some time to confirm details this will be a spectacular show with all the features and flavours of our traditional Rainbow experience.

We’ll have more details in the coming weeks for this show and tickets will go on sale soon.

We cannot explain in words the magnitude these circumstances have had on our staff, organisation and community although it’s nothing in comparison to the issues faced around the country. As well as our local community, there is an intricate ecosystem of small businesses including market stallholders, contractors and suppliers who rely on Rainbow for wages and income. The disruptive effects of this shift are far-reaching. We will be supporting everyone as best as we can.

But events don’t put on themselves, we need you, our patrons, to support us now more than ever. Buy a ticket if you haven’t got one already. Tell all your friends and get them to come along. We’ve heard many people say they can’t make it to one or either of the new events and plan on not asking for a refund – we thank you. Keep your eyes on our Facebook page for a special announcement for you all!

For those wanting a refund, updating attendee names, to transfer your tickets to RSF2021 and all other ticketing questions, there is too much to include in this post. Please visit the updated ticketing FAQ on our website for all your answers.

Together, we can create a double Rainbow to remember.

These guys know how to polish a turd lads. Outstanding Rainbow, still the best, most organised and forward thinking festival on the calendar 👏👏👏👏 Wesley van der Westhuizen Philip Simpson sam o'neil, Gavin Gray Mike Cowap

I would like to take a moment to acknowledge what a cluster fuck it must be to make these changes at the 11th hour. I struggled with losing a side room at a 600 person event let alone a change of venue and date to something of this magnitude. So kudos to all involved on your management of this unfortunate circumstance.

Everyone read the comments and you’ll find answers. They’re trying to get a mammoth task done and won’t fuck you over.

Fair play to all involved. Poor Subsonic had to do a similar logistical nightmare. ❤️

♥️♥️♥️ never apologise rainbow!! You guys have been dealt a shit sandwich and could have simply cancelled the party but instead have bought us a multi event rainbow in a mere few days…. Nothing to apologise other than being the best!!! 😍😍😍😍 Excited for both events!

Hopeful local act rainbow veterans like Opiuo and Spoonbill will make it onto the Urban lineup.

Thanks for putting something rad together, im sure its very stressful trying to sort it out as last minute as this.

You’re doing a stellar job! We’re all cheering for you xx

Will we be able to bring spin toys (hula hoops) and doof sticks into the city event?

Thanks for everything you are doing in this challenging time.

When will sleepy hollow contact us seeing you have advised not to fill out the form?

Hey guys any ideas when the urban edition tickets will go on sale and is eventbrite the best place to purchase them

When are the tickets for urban edition for sale?

Rainbow Serpent Festival where in Melbs is the urban event please? No details availavle but we only have until tomorrow 10am to request refund.

Amazing !!! Thanks you lovely legends for all you are doing, with such grace and respect. Xx

Any chance volunteers will get some info regarding the updated situation?

Hello, how to get tickets for the urban edition on 26th of January?

Awesome work Rainbow 🌈🌈🌈

Rainbow Serpent Festival 2020 when are details coming out about next weekends festivities?! Is it going to be byo and normal rainbow rules or are there going to be vendors? And the venue? I don’t want to be the pushy one but we all have questions

Have tickets been released yet for the day event as it’s a week on Sunday?

My family and I will be there over Easter supporting the near and far community in any way we can 🌈🥰

When applying for the refunds it asks for the order number and how much you paid on the transaction but I did a payment plan so have 3 different order numbers. How can I apply for the refund

Is Rainbow 2021 planned to be on the Australia Day weekend? The accelerated pace of climate change means summers like this will become more frequent….

Hey I’ve emailed rainbow about me transferring to 2021 and still have not heard back and would like so know if it’s been accepted so I don’t miss out of getting a refund please reply shortly.

There is a cutoff date for the refunds, but if we cant go through the regular avenue for a refund and the ticketing team dont get back to us in time, will we be entitled to a refund after that?

Hey guys I have hard copy tickets.. can I just get my full or part refunds from where I brought them from Alley Tunes in Hawthorn??

Excellent work rainbow team 👌 I can only imagine the pressure and amount of effort you are all putting in to get these two events up and running!

Looking good guys, absolutely huge line up. Full support.
