RSF Nomad Bazaar Application
Welcome to the application info page for the RSF “REGEN” 2020 Nomad Bazaar.
As you know it has been a trying year for us. After 23 years without skipping a beat, Mother Nature made her statement and shook up, not only us, but many festivals around Australia, not to mention fire volunteers, farmers and property owners with an unprecedented bushfire season. We had some set-backs but we’re soldiering on, and with the support of so many people including the local community, punters and of course your good selves, our future is looking bright again.
The Easter REGEN event will have a limited capacity (4-7000 people expected) and a more concentrated array of entertainment, services and of course Markets and Caterers!
We have reduced the number of vendors that will be trading and reduced the fees to make up for this scaling down. We will still be striving for the world class standard of festival art and entertainment that we have grown accustomed to, and we are really looking forward to witnessing the more intimate atmosphere that we enjoyed over 10 years ago and before.
For those that don’t know, the site is located in Lexton, Victoria, amongst the beautiful Pyrenees landscape, approximately 2 hours drive from Melbourne.
The dates for the 2020 Regen event are 10-13 April. The gates officially open at Midday on the Friday (10th) and close at Midday on the Monday (13th). You may arrive and stay within these public opening times

Rainbow Serpent takes pride in its environment policy. Working towards carbon neutrality, we are enforcing the ban of single-use plastics, the use of reusable and biodegradable cutlery & crockery of the food & beverage vendors; using bio-fuel to power the generators; have a glass/aluminium recycling system; operate a compostable toilet system, and strongly promote environmental responsibility to the punters. Please respect this policy and do your bit to make RSF a clean and environmentally responsible event site.
Nomad stalls do not have pre-allocated sites. You will have numerous options of spaces to set-up, trade and pack-up each day. For ease of logistics it is advised to keep your stock and infrastructure as minimal as possible.
