Music and StageS
Australia is an old continent with a long tradition of tribal gatherings where the sounds of didgeridoo and clapsticks created an unique atmosphere which today is instantly recognisable around the planet.
Eclipse2012 will showcase a breathtaking array of music covering all the different genres you’ve come to expect from festivals like Rainbow Serpent, Symbiosis and Glade and yes you will no doubt hear some amazing didgeridoo during the week as well!
With an open mind and adventurous soul there will always be sounds to move to and beats to feel. We hope you are as excited as we are!
