A great vibe in a very special part of the world summed up the EarthArtBeat Festival 2017 hosted by Moora Moora Co-operative Community over the weekend.
The three-day festival saw Moora Moora on Mount Toolebewong out of Healesville transformed into a colourful and vibrant festival space that offered a full weekend of music, workshops, kids activities, food, storytelling, yoga, poetry, alternative therapies and more.
Festival organiser Chelsea McNab said calibre of performances was one of many highlights.
Artists included Ganga Giri, Mal Webb and Kylie Morrigan, Little Giants, Dj Wonderfeel, Phoebe Like the Moon, Entwined Bellydance, 8 Foot Felix, and Dj O-Ring and more.
“We had amazing workshops as well, and when it did rain, we had plenty of undercover areas, so it just pulled everyone together even more.”
The festival has a strong environmental focus, and Ms McNab said it was another tick that at the end of the three-day festival they had just two waste bins and two recycle bins to deal with.
The festival was a fund-raiser for Warburton Environment Centre. Visit mailcommunity.com.au for a festival photo gallery.
