Group Therapy Weekender Festival Set To Make Its Australian Debut This December.
Australian touring giants Symbiotic and Hardware are joininng forces for the debut Australian edition of Above & Beyond‘s iconic ‘Group Therapy Weekender‘ festival.
Featuring a stellar, curated line-up of artists from their labels: Anjunabeats, Anjunadeep & Reflections. The camping festival, Group Therapy Weekender Australia will be held at Yarra Valley Estate for the band’s first ever multi-day festival down under.
Taking place between Friday 16 December and Sunday 18 December in Victoria’s breathtaking Yarra Valley, ‘Group Therapy Weekender Australia’ is an intimate camping getaway for Australia’s ‘Anjunafamily.’ There will also be a program of wellness activities and workshops to enhance the experience, surrounded by the picturesque landscape that surrounds the region. There will also be an offering of the very best food and drink, from Yarra Valley and beyond.
This is the first time the festival has been based in Australia and follows on from the success of ‘Group Therapy Weekender’ at The Gorge, Washington State, which welcomed 23,000 campers last July and ‘Group Therapy Weekender’ London at Dockyards.
One of the world’s best-loved electronic groups, ‘Above & Beyond’ have headlined arenas around Australia over the last decade, bringing their anthemic dance songs to tens of thousands of fans.
Update: Tuesday November 7, 2022
Anjuna, along with local partners Symbiotic and Hardware have made the difficult decision to relocate the inaugural ‘Group Therapy Weekender Australia’ from the Yarra Valley to central Melbourne. Same amazing show, minus the camping.
“With no reprieve from the rain in sight, it has been decided it’s too risky to proceed with a camping event this year. The team was faced with two choices: proceed and cross our fingers that the rain will ease, and the land will dry out, or relocate to the city, where we can provide a comfortable experience rain or shine. The ultimate goal is to deliver the greatest Anjuna event ever to visit Australia, and this can’t confidently be done in unfavourable weather conditions. The comfort and safety of patrons is always the priority and sliding around a sodden farm for two days isn’t the experience anyone wants to have, particularly for an event’s debut year. Although the weather has actually cleared up lately, and many were really looking forward to camping, if we’re to heed the word of Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology, the current La Niña event may very well continue on through the summer months.” say organisers.
‘Group Therapy Weekender Australia’ will take place under a big top tent at Melbourne Showgrounds in a beautiful, grassy arena that’s just ten minutes from central Melbourne. Two days, one stage, same line-up (bar a few small tweaks, including the addition of a Deep Set from Anjuna on Sunday!).
