Commonground Festival (18-20 Nov)
It’s about working together to make the world a better place and having one heck of a good time along the way! On 95 acres of rejuvenated bushland 1 hour north of Melbourne. Complimenting the music makers on the stage will be top quality workshops.
The workshops are designed to inspire, challenge and provide practical tools covering a range of topics related to Collaboration, Activism, Community Living & Connecting to Nature.
Line-up includes: Dallas Frasca / The Deans / Sugar Fed Leopards / The Seven Ups 8 Foot Felix / Deep Street Soul / Quantum Milkshake
Run by volunteers, the festival is a fundraiser for Commonground, a not-for- profit social enterprise that supports social justice, environmental, disadvantaged and community groups. It does this through providing its Venue at subsidised rates for social change groups, it’s Intentional Community, and its education and training organisation, the Groupwork Institute of Australia.
Do you ever wonder what the world would be like if people were better connected?
Better connected to the people around them, the place they live, the earth they tread, the food they eat, the work they do, the beat of their heart, the whole human experience? Connected to purpose, principles and passion?
Commonground is a vibrant example of that better connected world. A community of changemakers dedicated to the purpose of supporting the social change movement. On 95 acres of rejuvenated bushland 1 hour north of Melbourne, Commonground Festival is designed to help reconnect you.
It is a festival that celebrates social change. A place to experience what life could be like. It’s about working together to make the world a better place and having one heck of a good time along the way!

It's overwhelming success has prompted a metamorphosis, as the Commonground community finds new ways to manage a growing event in support of social change. This means there will be no festival in 2018.
