    The 5th annual Cairns Winter Solstice Celebration & Sustainable Lifestyle Gathering is a 4 day / 3 night outback camping adventure, that will be held from June 18-21, 2010 on the Tablelands, 3.5 hrs drive from Cairns.

    This year we have over 100 local, National & International Producers, Dj’s & bands, vjs performing over our 5 stages, The Winter Solstice Festival musical line-up has something for everyone & is not just about the music, we offer a huge array of different forms of entertainment from around the globe, staged in the great Aussie Outback....

    In the expanse of the Australian outdoor festival culture, Winter Solstice Lifestyle Gathering holds a special place in the hearts and minds of punters from not only Cairns, but from around the country and indeed the globe as well. The annual event, in its fourth year in 2009, was one of the region’s biggest and most creative festivals, attracting well over a hundred acts, performers, healers and artists over four days and three nights in the rugged beauty of the Atherton Tablelands. The thing about Winter Solstice is that it’s much more than a Far North Queensland event, instead being one of Australia’s premier alternative life style festivals with a strong focus on entertainment for all the ages and a holistic festival experience. Thousands of punters have been known to travel from interstate and overseas just to attend, proving it’s not only one of the region’s top music and arts events, but a global tourism drawcard as well. With a broad range of musical styles – from electronic music to live bands and solo acts – as well as roving performers, fire shows, healing areas, sustainability exhibitions and market stalls, Winter Solstice definitely deserves its spot as the winner of the Best Festival in the timeOUT Awards 2009.


    This year once again, we take a particular care by bringing quality visual performers to the table with the likes of;

    Well, Im not 100% certain that he will play at night, commonly they place some awesome acts for day sessions. If he is on evening/night time,- he is all yours! He played in Cairns only few months ago, great artist.. He just released a track on my friends Cairns based label - Open Records (www.open-records.net) the EP is called
    - First There Was Sound. Have a listen and support it through Beatport
    https://www.beatport.com/en-US/html...contextName=Open Records&contextEntityId=4282

    Getting massive reviews from likes of
    Hernan Cattaneo (Renaissance, Global Underground)

    Eelke Kleijn (Outside the Box)
    “Jamie Stevens remix is awesome!” (also in May charts)

    Presslaboys (Presslab Records)
    “The original is a well made progressive house track, but the Continuum remix is our choice. Perfect for our sets at the moment.”

    Criss Source (Mauritius Music / Circle Music / BluFin)
    “The Jamie Stevens Remix is absolutely incredible. A big massive bomb! Played that Remix in a lot of Clubs and

    Festivals. The Reaction is amazing. Respect Mr. Stevens.”
