ChillOut organisers have moved to expand the program of activities for next year’s festival, with a full four days of activities planned over the Victorian Labour Day weekend from March 5.
Traditionally the time for festival-goers to make the journey home, the Monday of next year’s festival will be packed with activities, tempting visitors to stay an extra night — or longer.
“This time the focus has really been on extending the festival to take in that extra day. We’ve never had a full program of events for the Monday before.
“ChillOut now extends from Friday lunchtime all the way through to Monday night,” festival associate producer Cara Dinley said.
“There have been quite a few more events added to give people things to do over that whole long weekend.”
Those events include live performances from the likes of Renee Geyer, Anthony Menchetti and Mzzz Erin Tasmania, plus a two-day golf tournament presented by Mercedes Benz and the Novotel Forest Resort Creswick.
Former Victoria Police chief commissioner and longtime Victorian GLBTI community ally Christine Nixon will also attend the festival as a special guest.
