Camping music festival Gaytimes is set to return for its third year in 2018.

Held over February 16–18, the festival will offer a weekend of music, arts, sexuality and self-expression for the LGBTI community.

Gaytimes 2018 will be held once again at Lake Mountain Alpine Resort in Marysville, Victoria, less than two hours’ scenic drive from Melbourne’s CBD.

The 2018 festival will feature its biggest lineup yet of live music and DJs across the outdoor Gaytimes stage and indoor after-hours Nighttimes club, with acts to be announced in the coming weeks.

With performers, visual arts, installations, screenings, yoga, sexuality workshops and more, Gaytimes is a festival experience unlike any other.

After selling out in 2017, Gaytimes 2018 will have a strictly limited capacity of 1000 patrons.

Early bird camping tickets are on sale now from $165 plus booking fee.

Gaytimes will again also offer glamping tickets, with luxury four- and five-person bell tents, and two-person tents available for the first time.

The event is 18+, with no passouts available.

The festival is BYO with a strict ban on glass, and a total fire ban.

Gaytimes will also be fully catered with cocktail bars, specialty coffee, food trucks and a community canteen raising money for LGBTI charities Minus18 and The Channel.

Lake Mountain Alpine Resort will have gender neutral facilities with permanent showers, toilets and change rooms.

Car parking is available and the site is wheelchair accessible, although organisers caution it does have some rocky slopes.

Gaytimes Festival is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria. To buy tickets visit: www.gaytimes.com.au.
