Camp Doogs is back for 2014 with a delicious feast of amazing bands & activities cooked up in a South West bush sanctuary. This year we’re taking things a step further with a dedicated dance pavilion, more activities, more food stalls, more bejazzling and more straight up good doogs.
As usual Camp Doogs is BYO and promotes sustainability with dedicated Bus transport to and from the site (no cars). This years lineup is killer with everything from black hole explorations from the far east, to adhd jazz pop from the close east and a truck load of local favourites keeping it real. Can’t wait to share Camp Doogs 2014 with you!
This year we are expanding our artistic program to include an open call. This means that any visual artist, be they first-timers or alumni, are able to propose an artwork to be included in the festival environment.
Camp Doogs takes place in Nannup, Western Australia which showcases forward-thinking local and international musicians. The festival takes place over 2 nights in a sprawling native Australian forest, riddled with pathways and riverside grottoes. We are seeking artworks that interact with the festival atmosphere, create special places out of the existing landscape, or enhance the participatory elements of the festival.
To apply, please send a maximum 1-page project description to campdoogs at goodtimesarts dot com with the subject “Visual Artist Application” by July 31. If funding is necessary to achieve your vision, please include a budget proposal that outlines any expenses. Since we have a limited artistic budget, please note that projects which are self-funded and Do-It-Yourself / Do-It-Together make very viable candidates. Include any relevant links to mock-ups, previous artworks, and online portfolios OR send a maximum of six JPEG images as attachments to your email.

Camp Doogs was an amazing success in 2013 with more than 30 acts playing over the 3 day event.
Held in Nannup during the first weekend of October, Camp Doogs showcased a selection of Australia’s best musicians as well as serving as a gathering for Perth’s thriving music community. Camp Doogs was everything a music festival should be!
Set along the beautiful Blackwood River surrounded by the pristine Forrest of the south west; Camp Doogs featured a main stage packed full of great food, mystery performances, secret lineups and a range of fun activities to bring the nostalgia of camp back to life.
Serving up a wide selection of healthy food, Camp Doogs was catered by local Nannup businesses as well as Brazilian food truck treats from Comida Du Sol.
We can’t wait til next year!
