Wanderlust Downunder is almost here!

Wanderlust Downunder is almost here!

Wanderlust, the world’s largest and fastest growing yoga and music platform, is only weeks away from launching Downunder. Iconic park locations are being prepared in Melbourne, Auckland and Sydney as the perfect places to kick off these one day ‘taster’ events.

Festival goers can expect to see some of the world’s most renowned yoga teachers, lifestyle gurus and leaders of green living, along with a broad range of top DJs, musicians and performing artists. Also on offer is a delicious range of organic eats, locally produced wine, craft markets and a range of outdoor activities.

“The final countdown is on and we can’t wait to launch Wanderlust Australia and NZ. The ethos of Wanderlust is about bringing together a group of open minded, fun loving and creative individuals who aim to take part in new adventures. These one day events will only be a sampling of the bigger multi day events we have planned for the following year and we hope people will turn out and become part of this exciting new community,” says Festival Director Jonnie Halstead.

Wanderlust has co-created with yoga lifestyle brand lululemon to build an internationally renowned teacher and speaker line-up for each of their three events.

The general festival event is free for those who register to attend online and includes access to ‘The Greatest Place’ for music, yoga and all of the exciting main stage activities. For anyone passionate about yoga there are upgrade packages available that secure yoga spots in the front 5 rows and offer the chance to meet the yoga leaders after class. For those up for a real challenge there are limited premium tickets still available to ‘The Mothership’, where truly immersive yoga workshops will be held. For those who want to let their hair down, the late afternoon will be the perfect time to take in some music while enjoying organic and biodynamic wines from ‘Winederlust’.

“Some of the ticket packages have already sold out, while the free registrations are already into the thousands. We are overwhelmed with the initial response to the festivals and can’t wait to see Wanderlust (Downunder) come to life!” says Jonnie Halstead.
