Rouse Hill Psychedelia. Friday 24 June, 6pm to 10pm and Saturday 25 June, 4pm to 10pm. Rouse Hill Estate.

Experience Rouse Hill Psychedelia, a new experimental arts event transforming Rouse Hill Estate into a world of colour, light and sound.

This psychedelic adventure is inspired by the radical musical ideas and abstract art of Dr John Buchanan Rouse Terry, a descendant of the Rouse family, who created immersive performances in the mid-1960s.

Featuring an eclectic mix of electronic and experimental music acts, using both contemporary and retro technology (a nod to John Terry’s work), artists will respond creatively to the rural landscape of the property to create an unforgettable and sensory experience for all visitors. Plus, digitised sections of 16mm film hand-painted by Dr Terry will be projected throughout the site.

Over two nights, discover new experimental music and sound art, see Rouse Hill Estate illuminated by lights and projections, grab a bite to eat from the Agape food truck and enjoy drinks from the Archie Rose pop-up bar.
