BABYLON ~ a music and lifestyle festival deep in the heart of the Australian wilderness; camp between the trees and lose yourself to the sound, the sights and the experience that is this magical wonderland. Based in the beautiful countryside of Carapooee West, Victoria, there is no better place to leave the rest of the world, behind.
Across three magical days (Friday Feb 21st – Sunday Feb 23rd) Babylon returns for its 4th year with a collection of breathtaking international and local music acts; from techno & house to psytrance, magnificently orchestrated to create a spectacular visual and audio sensory experience.
A festival where attendees travel to from all over the world, not only for music but for the unparalleled world of visual art, freedom of expression and mindfulness, that is the entirety of the Australian Bush-doof experience. Offering a vibrant atmosphere, revellers can meander through the Marketplace & Food Village, participate in a variety of Workshops, and be free to explore their own sense of self and self-expression.
It is with much excitement and anticipation to present to you, the first round of acts that will be performing on the stages of Babylon, in February of 2020.
Some Of Our Highlight Acts For BABYLON 2020…
From the depths of the underground techno scene, now to the main stages around the world, it is an absolute honour to welcome Alan Fitzpatrick to Babylon 2020, for his Australian debut. Known for his impressive and extensive repertoire of unique melodies and thumping beats; attendees can prepare themselves for an experience that takes them on a journey beyond what you hear. With this kind of talent, Alan is sure to be a highlight at Babylon next year and we can not wait to welcome him into the Babylon family!
Babylon legend, partner and curator Carl Cox is set to give attendees the party they’ve been waiting for. If last year was any indication; it can be said without a doubt, the beats, the dance, the undeniable good
vibes will be reverberating through the dance floor when the titan of techno steps on stage.
Ann Clue, female DJ & producer, best friend and creative collaborator with Boris Brejcha; this dark horse out of Germany is taking on stages around the world, showing off her own unique flair from the genres of dark melodic techno to the acid and bass tracks that are so uniquely, Ann. Also out of Deutschland, Andhim will be bringing what they consider their own genre of ‘Super House’, built from the ashes of tech house and melodic techno, the key is in the details; this duo brings the fun to the party .
Something out of this world would be an understatement; Eat Static makes an epic return to Australia. Known as one of the U.K’s first OG live techno outfits and psytrance legends, their sense of humour, inventive unpredictability and talent on and off the stage is an event not to be missed.
Finally, an artist we are beyond excited to welcome back to Babylon; world renowned classical pianist, turned synth king and electro veteran Reinier Zonneveld. The rise to the stages around the world came naturally and fast with this kind of unique talent, with so much more to come, we are expecting an incredible set.
With the lineup we’ve got for Babylon 2020, there isn’t enough we could possibly write to explain what the music, the dance or the vibe is going to be like… just absolutely and unbelievably good.

BABYLON Values: Revellers are kind, caring and respectful of their fellow festival goers and of the environment; most importantly, they should always look out for their own safety and the safety of their friends.
