DJ Daniel Webber is one of the masterminds of Bizarre Garden, an electronic music event happening 5–7 February 2016. He gave Seven the lowdown on this gathering of EDM lovers.
Where is the Bizarre Garden? How is is situated for camping – showers and access to water etc?
Bizarre Garden is 1.5 hours west of Byron Bay; this will remain a mystery until closer to the date.
Yes, there is adequate space and facilities for camping and there will be hot showers, drinking water, local food and clothing stalls, and workshops – not to mention loads of fresh coconuts!
Who are Essential Intentions and what is their vision for the event?
Essential Intentions is an event company focused on good vibes and quality electronic music. The commercial EDM scene has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. We aim to provide patrons with something different – showcasing world-class forward-thinking house and techno artists from around the globe with local purveyors of the best sound, production and decor in the country creating a unique energy and visual enhancement that has helped put Byron Bay on the map as a hot spot within the Australian dance music community.
What is at the core of gatherings like this?
No bullshit, just good times with good people.
What is a typical day like in the Bizarre Garden? I would love it if you could talk me through from a punter’s perspective!
Immerse yourself in the lush north coast forest where people leave the day-to-day schedule behind to connect and dance in a bizarre wonderland of positive vibes and fun-filled activities.
