Like a radiant moon that wins over dark clouds on a bleak night, The Unconformity festival is shining again after three long years.

We're back.
Not that we really went away.

The Unconformity is a contemporary arts festival that explores the paradoxes of Queenstown, a small mining community on lutruwita/Tasmania’s wild and mountainous West Coast.

Experience our community's unmatched sense of place on 15–17 October 2021.

Music line-up

We have an exciting line-up of musicians performing across the whole weekend at Crib Road, a free-to-access space on Orr Street.

Come and stay

The remote West Coast of lutruwita/Tasmania is reached by a stunning mountainous drive via the Lyell or Murchison Highways. Allow 3.5–4 hours to drive to the region from Launceston or Hobart.

We've compiled a guide to the best ways to get Queenstown and the West Coast.

The Unconformity acknowledges the palawa people as the original and traditional custodians of lutruwita / Tasmania. We commit to working respectfully to honour their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this land.
