Last year we chose to reduce the size of Meredith by 500 people – it was nice, so that will stay in place this year for more Time and Space. Premium as standard.

    The War On Drugs

    Without a doubt my favorite album of this year has been “Lost In A Dream” by The War On Drugs. Long drives in the Valiant with this in the tape deck have been thoroughly revelatory, cathartic and cured me of everything. The music makes me feel at home, nostalgic, alive, uplifted; then at times sad, then happy, then happysad. It reminds me…..of the present. It’s the deepest, sweetest pleasure. It takes me back, takes me out, and takes me waaaay in. I don’t know where…but it takes me There.

    This is their third album, and it’s their masterpiece. It took two years to record – apparently with cycles of writing, rehearsing, recording, then scrapping it and starting over. QC was set to “ultimate”; only the finest and sublimest was silky enough to slip through the filter. Not that it’s without true grit either.

    Things come and go so quickly, but this album is a piece of art for the ages.

    It means everything to me to have this at Meredith this year.

    ….You’re on my side again…

    Friday Night, let’s get lost in a dream.

The Supernatch

All praise to Uncle Doug and the Supernatural Custodians who have spent years refining the festival site into a purpose-built Underground Wonderland. 24 years of collective know-how, and wild ambition married with a deep practical genius, means that sweet little parcel of land that hosts Meredith is now maturing into Everything We Hoped She Would Be.

The time of our lives

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Meredith remains fiercely Meredith – still One Stage Fits All, still uniquely BYO, everyone still camps (though with world’s-best-practice facilities these days), the BBQ has become the Community Tucker Tent, and is still a BBQ, with profits going to local community groups. There are no commercial sponsors – and never will be. The long-held No Dickhead Policy is still in place. Meredith is what it was always meant to be – a haven. A party. A celebration of music, nature, friendship and humanity.

History
ticket

A good start is essential

Meredith started back in 1991 when a coupla hundred friends had an end-of-year party here on the farm. It was a celebration of music, nature, friendship and humanity in all its four-dimensional glory. Back then there was just one stage, lots of local bands, everyone BYO-ed, the local community ran a BBQ, and the party-goers all camped overnight. There was plenty of time and space and freedom – it was dreamt up purely for fun.
