"We're all mad here." You're Welcome!
Celebrating inclusion and coming together as one tribe to reconnect, dance and get lost down the rabbit hole! We are turning Belmore Park right in the heart of Sydney into a Wonderland of music, colour, creativity, connection and inspiration!
Because we have all been down the rabbit hole through these isolating times we are creating the ultimate festival for you to unleash, dust off those dancing shoes and dress up as your favourite Alice in Wonderland character!
This is a 1 day festival experience including a giant co-created Mad Hatters tea party, 2 Xstatic Sunsets themed stages with live music, DJ’s, performers along with inspiring talks, comedy, a scavenger hunt and a magical theatrical rabbit hole experience! Expect Xstatic natural highs, silliness and surprises!
In fact, we are going for a Guinness world record! To create the 'Worlds Largest Mad Hatters Tea Party!' (Or more specifically 'the largest gathering of people dressed as Alice in Wonderland characters).
You're involved in creating the magic! The tea party is co-created by you and your mates or family! So yes you need to take the dress up seriously! The current record is 550 people so we are aiming to blow this out of the park!
What you need to know
This is an alcohol-free and inclusive all-ages event - families are welcome. Be prepared to dress up, get creative and dance at the ultimate reconnection celebration!
We are going for a Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people dressed up in Alice in Wonderland characters so you need to dress up as one of the characters to help us break the record. Guidance on character options and accessories you need to wear will be provided.
Create your own tea party setting (tables & chairs are included) bring your own table cloth, tea, cakes and table setting! Linking up with hundreds of others in front of our main Mad Hatters Stage!
A prize will be given for the most outrageous tea party setting!
And for those of you wanting it all laid on - you can pay extra for a VIP table setting ready to go with all the tea you can drink!
After the tea party, our Rabbit hole experience will open up as the White Rabbit leads you into another world of self-discovery, connection, music and dance!
Enjoy our healthy food and alcohol-free beverage options while enjoying some comedy or an inspiring talk. Play some flamingo croquet or just go and hug a tree!!
