We believe that festivals can be a powerful catalyst for self-development, healing and social change. We want to provide an experience that enriches your soul at the same time as giving you a place to party and socialize.
Rabbits Eat Lettuce is a place of Freedom, Love & Dance Music. Camp in a beautiful natural environment and form a community of like-minded souls who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life. Rabbits Eat Lettuce lets us be human again. We can dissolve the social barriers and dance together.
Rabbits Eat Lettuce began in 2008 as a Tribal Easter party on the mid-north-coast of NSW and has become an underground tradition in the area, long lost brothers and sisters reconnect to dance, share stories, socialize and camp out under the stars. The event has grown a lot since it’s humble beginnings as a forest dance party but still holds the same essence of freedom and unique mystery it started with.
Our magical festival village will be held in a Raw Australian Bushland Location with native gums and birdlife. The event takes place over 4 days and has a number of stages showcasing a variety of dance music. Everything from deep and serious to fresh and funky. Main Stages will run between 9am & 3am with various low-key enntertainment & pop up stages bringing in the sunrise for those that like to stay up all night. The festival venue is far removed from civilisation, so the party can keep pumping through to sunrise. Regardless of your sleeping patterns, you will find a party.
Aside from our fully themed forest dance stages we also have a chill zone, which hosts a variety of workshops and activities throughout each day. Activities include; Yoga, AcroYoga, Meditation, Dance Classes, Massage, Music Production, Finger Painting, Easter Olympics, Permaculture, Informative Drug Discussions and Healing. At night the chill zone will transform into a psychedelic slumber party with movies, chill music, acoustic artists, beanbags & chai tea. There will be a wide variety of delicious & nutritious food and beverages sold in the vibrant market village.

In an effort to promote car pooling and reduce the amount of traffic on the roads, reduce green house emissions and reduce overall vehicles on site we will be charging a $50 fee per vehicle that enter the festival gates.

All Market Vendors in the Market Area will be accepting payments through our Cashless RFID Wristband System.
