Queer music and camping festival Gaytimes is returning for its third year, this time boasting something extra special: its very own chapel for LGBTI couples to get married.

The festival at Lake Alpine Mountain Resort, less than two hours out of Melbourne, will feature a gorgeous mountaintop chapel for couples who want to tie the knot surrounded by other rainbow partiers.

Couples who would like to register to be among the first to be legally married in Australia can contact Gaytimes about their unique wedding package.

A huge lineup has just been announced for the weekend festival, featuring performers including Le1f, Brendan Maclean, Stereogamous, Alex the Astronaut, Mama Alto, and many more.

The festival is once again showcasing an eclectic and diverse range of performers, and providing a platform for emerging LGBTI artists, with even more acts still to be announced.

Tickets are still available but selling fast, for $240 plus booking fee.

Glamping tickets are almost sold out, so get in quick to spend the weekend in a touch of extra luxury.

Volunteer applications for the festival are still open—volunteers receive a complimentary ticket in exchange for 12 hours of shifts doing various work that might include duties like cleaning or hospitality, depending on experience.

Gaytimes welcomes all members and friends of the LGBTI community and has consulted with the community to provide an inclusive and accessible festival, including features like gender-neutral bathrooms, chillout zones and safety ambassadors.

The festival will be held over the weekend of February 16–18.
