Each year has a lot of fun and exciting concerts and events to attend, but what if you are more of a nerd than a music enthusiast?

GeekFest is an annual convention that emphasises cosplay, live action role-playing (LARP), table-top gaming, and other interesting activities. The event usually takes place in April or May. The venue changes, but it usually has a lot of outdoor space capable of accommodating a large crowd and the number of interesting events and attractions on offer. If you are into cosplaying, role-playing as different characters, or running away from a zombie horde, then GeekFest is an event you defintely need to attend.

This festival catered for an impressively wide spectrum of music tastes, with five stages accommodating the numerous styles, and two of the five stages running throughout the entire day. Main Stage was used for the bigger acts, as well as the indie and folk acts, while Willow Tree Stage was for almost all tastes, ranging from metal bands like Boargazm to rock bands, such as The Dandies and even the reggae band Tidal Waves. The Cool in the Pool stage was only used from 11:00 to approximately 15:00 to keep people moving and entertained while enjoying the day by the poolside. The Rave Cave and Bar Floor both only ran in the evenings, focusing predominantly on the various subgenres of electronic music.
