What is the access like?
The roads leading to the site are in great condition, both 2WD and 4WD vehicles should have no difficulty.
How many stages will there be at Dimension?
Dimension features one main stage and a theme camp arena.
Main Stage: Music is one of the cornerstones of a maximized festival experience. For each afternoon and night of Dimension, expect to be delivered to all new heights and depths by our authentic lineup of top-class international acts. Nothing will be held back during these transcendent all-night sessions, so expect to be pushed to the absolute outer limits of consciousness and fun, this will be an action packed dancefloor from start to finish!
Alternative/Theme Camp: As a new feature this year, we will be giving crews the opportunity to add to the vibe at Dimension by creating their own themed art and sound spaces. The idea is to make Dimension as comfortable and dynamic as possible for all in attendance, regardless of their background (or state).This will be by application only, so let us know if you might like to provide an alternative for ravers to enjoy.
