If a possum does a shaka in the bush, but no one is there to witness it, does the bush shaka back?
Welcome to Camp Doogs IV. Three special days in a lush bit of bush deep in the South West of the swan coastal plain, WA.
What is a doog? Why do I feel so tranquil? How do you I pronounce it? Is it edible? Emotionally tax deductible? Yes, yes & yes!!
Bloody plenty of music, heaping tonnes of food, chocka-block art delights, night queens, spontaneous frivolities & sleepover cubbyhouse activies zone. Watching live music in the open or enjoying some chill time and a stimulating chat, why can’t you have both? Get a tattoo while making your first ceramic pot while listening to a kookooburra lol, why not all three?!
The Glen C. Doogs guarantee is to provide a licence-to-chill alternative to the hustle and bustle of traditional live music platforms in WA/AUS. By giving campers a full pallet of experience, punters can become platonic ships in the night a.k.a possum to possum to possum.
Camp Doogs is put together by artist collective Good Times Arts Inc, who put forth our finest picks of the glitter for you to enjoy. We are entirely B Y O, fully D I Y, and secretly D T F.
Low-key Doogs alumni include: Kirin J Callinan, No Zu, Tim Richmond Band, Superstar and Scott and Charlene’s Wedding, Nicholas Allbrook, Kucka, Peter Bibby Midline Line Jug Band etc.
Doogs also boasts a critically curated Deep Doogs dance stage, frothing all night long with past headliners including DJ Nozaki and Noise In My Head in 2015.
So sign up, hop in, and enjoy the luxurious float down the river doogs while the good times last.
