IT'S that time of the year when fishnet stockings become fashion appropriate, furry boots are the must-have footwear and colourful arm candy is the signature accessory needed to top off the ultimate Defqon.1 music festival outfit.
Up to 25,000 people from Australia and the world, donned in self-styled dance wear, are expected to descend on the Regatta Centre for the award-winning Defqon.1 music festival on Saturday, September 14.
There will be 130 international and Australian music acts will perform their big synth beats, electro mixes and techno hits for hard dance enthusiasts across seven brightly coloured stages — Red, Blue, Black, Orange, Purple, Magenta and Green.
A Defqon.1 spokeswoman said this year's event featured more attractions and activities than before.
Festival attendees can bring their own tent or choose to have a tent set up. The festival camping opens on Friday, September 13 with the Defqon.1 pre-party and closes on Sunday, September 14. Camping tickets cost $60 per night.
