1 Jul - 13 Aug 2017

Embrace the elements of the southern Otways when a new after-dark festival sparks up next month: the first WinterWild will revel in the untamed side of Apollo Bay. Don’t look away. Inspired by the elements of earth, water, air and fire – and informed by the history of Apollo Bay - the 18+ festival takes place over four weekends to highlight various art forms: music, street theatre, film and storytelling.

Mick Turner (Dirty Three), Sand Pebbles, screening of cult 90s surf film Litmus with soundtrack performance by director Andrew Kidman
