THE TOWN

A quirky village in a far away land.
Who mock the real world and explore sustainable plans

  • The Town 2020

    THE TOWN

    The town is a mock interactive village that parodies society in a creative, family friendly, interactive and totally absurd themed village.

    It is full of immersive buildings, activities, characters + shenanigans around every corner! It also explores what makes a sustainable Town and focuses on healthy and sustainable living, connection over consumption, and sustainable solutions.

    The theme this year will be Power: Exploring sustainable power, parodying corrupt power, and tapping into our own inner power.

  • Concept

    The concept behind the Town is to create a colourful, immersive village that parodies the real world.

    The festivals is full of interactive spaces, actors and narrative to explore, and we also encourage all to bring their own characters and ideas to share with the event.

    It also is a sustainable village, that allows us to reflect on how we live our daily lives, and make choices that are best for ourselves, our community and the planet.

    This melding of absurdity and sustainability is what makes the concept so unique and special.

    Sustainability

    The Town is a family friendly event. It prides itself on self-care, land care, and community care, with a huge focus on connection instead of consumption.

    Each year we further explore how to be more sustainable, and encourage all to party in a way that is healthy and could keep being done forever. This is one of the most important things to keep our beautiful Town striving.

    Licola is now running on 95 percent sustainable energy, and we continue to improve our own sustainable initiatives each year. We encourage you to use the festival as a reflection point on how to lives your own lives in a more healthy and sustainable fashion.
