As Meredithy As Possible
Just gonna do what we do best, do a lot of it, and do it really well. Looking forward to this one.
If you have any thoughts or comments or ideas, my caravan door is always open.
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 Sup'
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
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.
We guarantee we will continue to listen, fix things if they don’t work, not fix the ain’tbrokens and keep on making Meredith AmaZinger.
