Such Is Life Fest 2012 – Goongerah

Posted by Matt

Friday 9th Mar, until Sunday 11th Mar
SUCH IS LIFE (DIY PUNK) FESTIVAL
Goongerah, East Gippsland
Friday 9th - Sunday 11th March

Such Is Life is a DIY punk (heeeeeps crust) festival organised on a not-for-profit basis. It first took place in 2004 and is the only festival of its kind happening in Australia. This is a great little festival for those who love their music fast, food vegan and jackets heavily patched. Since attending/playing a previous Such Is Life  Fest this comes highly recommended although not for the faint hearted. Get some of your punk mates together and head to this to crust up. Don't forget the goon bag.

Camping space + limited amounts of food and beverages will be provided. Bands will play everyday. No dogs, no fires, no fancy lodgings, no sooks -camping only!
