VANFEST is a regional based music & arts festival, designed to support and strengthen youth culture and community tourism. With all the trimmings that you would expect to see on the big city stages, VANFEST proudly supports up & coming young artists, as well as bringing high calibre international touring artists to the main stage in the heart of central NSW. Forbes NSW has played host to VANFEST since 2014, where the event has grown rapidly and built a reputation as an incredible weekend away with your mates.
“It really is such a credit to the local community and region for the huge support they have given over the past couple of years. We would not be here without their ongoing involvement. VANFEST will continue to build, and bring the Central West an event they can be proud to call their own,” says Matt Clifton.
Spread across two days, VANFEST is the ultimate road trip getaway to set your sights on the countryside and escape the city for a weekend. There’s plenty of entertainment across the weekend including market stalls, bar activations, pop-up beach bars, VIP experiences, adrenalin rides, camping communities, and much more. VAN-CITY provides a pop up community for the weekend with a centralised common area, where you can relax and enjoy the weekend with mates. It provides multiple camping options from freestyle camping under the stars, to pre-pitched tents, and even glamping for those who want to camp in style and comfort.
