You asked, and we heard you!

Macquarie University SRC is proud to present a brand new Macquarie festival for 2016 – RE:Conception!

Taking place over 15 and 16 September, RE:Conception has been inspired and designed by students to celebrate the place we all know and love in our very own backyard.

Thursday night's Ubar-style party will be headlined by international superstar TIMMY TRUMPET, who will be supported by DIDIER COHEN, EMBER, A-TONEZ, and SAMRAI. With food trucks, a huge dance-floor, outdoor chill-space, and pop-up bars, it'll be a night you're sure to remember.

Limited tickets are available for Thursday night, and can be purchased now through Moshtix. But you don’t need to worry about forking out for Friday – it’s open and free for everyone!

Friday afternoon's kick-back sesh will feature the chilled vibes of indie-poppers SAN CISCO, FURNACE AND THE FUNDAMENTALS, DJ NINO BROWN, as well as an exciting line-up of live acoustic acts, food trucks, boutique bars and more. And, at the end of the night, kick your mid-semester break off with a bang with a huge fireworks finale by the lake, a first at Macquarie.

It’s also important to remember that Macquarie is an inclusive, fun and safe place for all – we look out for each other, respect one another, and celebrate together as one, awesome community.

So, go forth, spread the news, book your ticket, and get excited!
