Dust off your fringed crops and denim cut offs! An internationally-inspired, Summer music and crafts festival is coming to Melbourne’s West and you don’t need to camp out for tickets or drive to the desert. Designed for both the young and young at heart, and for the first time ever, Highpoint Shopping Centre is hosting Kidchella now until Friday 25 January, followed by Summer Nights from Saturday 2 – Sunday 3 February 2019.
One for the school holidays’ bucket list, Kidchella will include hands-on craft activities where little ones can create their very own flower crown, tote bag, dream catcher or bracelet. The event week will end with a big finale, where kids can hit the dancefloor at the ultimate silent disco on Friday 25 January.
An Instagrammer’s heaven, Summer Nights will be headlined by a Coachella-inspired labyrinth and walk-through cactus garden, alongside tent-shaped dressing rooms for Festival Makeovers by Mecca Maxima. In addition to the Instagram-worthy photo moments, festivalgoers can get involved in ‘crafternoons’ to create their very own beaded and jewelled festival accessories, soak up the sound of live DJs, sip on delicious Summer cocktails, and taste the roaming festival food options being served up by a series of Highpoint food retailers.
Ticket prices vary for Kidchella and Summer Nights activities. Visit the Highpoint website for ticketing information and to purchase: www.highpoint.com.au.
