Dear Esoterican community, your health and safety is important to us!
We are currently in the process of CovidSafe planning with a view to going ahead on the 11th of March till 15th of March 2022. This is currently unprecedented in Victoria for a festival like ours, but we are working with a team of professionals to address the everchanging health measures needed whilst still guaranteeing you a true Esoteric experience, so we can gather together at Donald in the forest we all miss so much!
Under the current Victorian Government restrictions we can run at 100% capacity.
Due to the status of international borders still being uncertain, Esoteric have moved forward with an all star, all Aussie lineup, because we have so much homegrown talent right here that we wish to support more than ever in these uncertain times. Repeat, there are no internationals this year and just a stacked Australian lineup of musicians, DJs and performers.
The current legislation is changing rapidly, but we acknowledge that there will be elements of health measures in place, such as a need for contact tracing via scanning upon entry, proof of vaccination certificate or a medical exemption certificate when entering, increased hygiene practices, increased sanitation stations, extra cleaning of toilets and other common areas along with an expectation to maintain social distancing where you can. All our staff will go through a covidsafe induction and Security staff are also trained covid marshals. All food stalls will adhere to the Covidsafe rules that apply including any patron limits within the indoor areas. Expect to see some additional covidsafe signage around the food areas. We have all been living with the Covid regulations for a long time now so you should all be familiar with and take it upon yourselves to help stop the spread of the virus. The event is outdoors which is certainly a big help but everyone of you all play a part at keeping each and everyone safe at Esoteric.
Some music festivals are already going ahead in other states with CovidSafe measures in place. Our current plan will ensure we put on Esoteric as close to ‘normal’ as possible so your experience is the one you have been eagerly awaiting. We are constantly monitoring the government announcements around restrictions easing for events.
We will email all ticket holders of the expectations around being Covid safe along with all safety messaging and entry requirements in the leadup to the event. Rest assured that we are doing everything we can to make Esoteric 2022 the safest and best festival possible in the current conditions everyone is faced with.
We can’t wait to dance with you all in March and we know how much everyone needs to gather and celebrate making it through 2020 & 2021.
