Peak Music Festival 2024 Perisher, Dates, Artists, Program & Accommodation
A diverse group of Australian and international artists will descend on Perisher to showcase their truly amazing mix of talent and entertainment across seven live stages throughout the resort – from cosy lounges to headline acts on the Main Stage.
Wake up to the fresh mountain air and catch the Perisher Quad chair to experience the sights from the top of Australia. With Perisher’s extensive snow-making facilities, chances are you can also enjoy the first tracks of the ski season!
Stay overnight attendees can reach the festival venue via the Perisher Skitube Terminal at Bullocks Flat. The train will be running as well, following an early-season schedule. Parking will be available at Perisher Valley, with limited parking slots at Smiggin Holes (depending on the weather). All 2WD cars are required to have snow chains when in the National Park.
When it comes to packing, keep in mind that as ‘Australia’s Coolest Festival’, temperatures are expected to drop below zero at night. For your comfort during the Peak Music Festival, it’s recommended to pack for cold temperatures – even during the daytime. Even though all festival venues are indoors, wearing warm clothing, hats, waterproof shoes, and gloves is recommended to get to the various venues. Snow conditions are unpredictable, so preparing for the festival is best.
Some venues are within walking distance of one another, with free shuttles offered for longer distances. Food and beverages will be available in several outlets in the resort and the festival venues. Remember that the venues are licensed, so bringing alcohol is not permitted.
The Perisher Resort is on Kosciuszko Road in Perisher Valley, New South Wales. Getting here from Sydney by car consists of a 5-6 hour drive, but another option is to take a flight to Canberra and then drive a shorter distance.
