Drift Festival 2022

30th April 2022

For 11 days in autumn, Drift will bring the Peninsula’s venues, places and spaces to life with performances, music, visual arts, film, public art installations, multimedia and projections, writing and literature and local food and wine, offering exciting new opportunities to experience the best of the region.

Drift also presents Into the Wilderness**, a family-friendly day of live music, performance, participatory workshops and activities at Balnarring’s Emu Plains Reserve. Fun, free and immersive, this event will feature music from Pierce Brothers, The Grogans, Hayley Mary, Andy Golledge, Bumpy, Nicky Bomba, Stiff Richards, Time Machine, Polarize, Hayden Calnin, President Roots, NinchFest DJs and more across two music stages.

Into the Wilderness features the Little Palais Circus tent, filled with circus, physical theatre and comedy, and a makers’ market lovingly curated by the good folks at Emu Plains Market / Untold Events Co showcasing the best in local art, craft and design. Mornington Peninsula has long been known as a destination for gourmet food and wine, and this event aims to showcase some of the best of the region’s food and beverage offerings.

As dusk falls, Emu Plains will light up with colourful light installations from Playable Streets and Lantasia Lights, blending traditional lantern design, sculpture and illustration to create luminous pieces of art, courtesy of The Lanternist.
