Rainbow Serpent Festival is a 4-day annual open-air electronic music, art, and lifestyle festival that takes place during the Australia Day long weekend, around 26 January, in Lexton, Victoria, 160 kilometers west of Melbourne, Australia.
For many of the 15,000 people that attend each year, Rainbow has become an institution, and annual reunion, a marker in the year that’s looked forward to for months in advance.
The name Rainbow Serpent is distinctly Australian, coming from the Dreamtime creation story told by the traditional owners of the land. Dreamtime stories often vary between aboriginal tribes, however the story of the Rainbow Serpent is special as it is one of the few common to all.
