Welcome to ChillOut’s– it's time to Shake your Tail Feather!

ChillOut festival is a proudly regional LGBTIQ festival - it does not attract the same level of financial support as festivals in the major capital cities. Festival planning, co-ordination and management roles are mainly filled by our stunning volunteers who work all year round to make these events happen. During the Festival weekend we draw volunteers from Melbourne and the local region. These are our doers on the ground and their efforts ensure we can provide a well-run Festival. Say hi to them on your weekend.

Use the shuttle bus provided to access all venues rather than take your car.

Enjoy and party safe!

Our wonderful region is opening her arms and welcoming you to ChillOut, to relax and Shake Your Tail Feather!
The journey to PRIDE is ongoing and we need to stand together more and more as we navigate push back from many quarters. For this reason, we are highlighting a couple of new initiatives this year. Our Why we still need PRIDE video will be released on Youtube and social media. We feel that it is really important to make this statement right now.
Our Raising Rainbows initiative is helping to support our regional community in being more visible.
There are a number of new venues and some great offerings this year.
Thanks heaps to our sponsors and supporters that help to make this happen – and to our amazing volunteers. Most of all the BEST committee eva! These 8 people really do the hard yards. If you see a committee member – remember to thank them!
We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful region for this iconic festival.
