ABOUT ECHO FESTIVAL

About echo festival

The festival’s theme for 2022 is Kelp Forests, which play a vital role in the ecosystems of the East Coast and have been a staple for Tasmanian Aboriginal people from the region for thousands of years.

The East Coast Harvest Odyssey, known as ECHO Festival, has become known for weaving together immersive sensory experiences around the traditions of harvest, old and new. This boutique festival guides guests on a journey of exploration that encompasses all the senses – taste, smell, sight, sound and touch.


Since founding the festival in 2019 Ange Boxall has poured her heart and soul into making a truly unique multidisciplinary event that goes beneath the surface and fosters authentic connection with people and place.

ECHO Festival is back for another year, running over the weekend of the 8th, 9th and 10th of April. Hosted in the picturesque wine country on the fringes of Swansea, the 2022 program brings together chefs, winemakers and producers along with artists, musicians, storytellers, scientists, entrepreneurs and thought leaders.
The east coast of East Coast lutruwita / Tasmania is an incredible place to live.  We eat so well, we get together by the fire, enjoy the local tipples, and share stories.  We’re always having fun under the stars and we want to share that magic with everyone.
The past two years have not only starved us of artistic and cultural experiences, we’ve been deprived on a sensory level – touch, shared tastes, sounds, and scent.  ECHO warmly wakes us up, and takes us on a journey of exploration to reignite those senses
