The event

The events start with build & end with strike!

The event will start with the build, which begins on Tuesday, June 20th and runs until Thursday, June 22nd when the gates open to all participants.
During build, all participants will come together to build the temple, DreamCamps and other structures that will be used throughout the event.
Once the gates open on Thursday, June 22nd, participants will be able to explore the event grounds & participate in activities. The event will come to a close on Monday, June 26th with the start of the strike, when volunteers will begin dismantling the structures and cleaning up the event grounds. Whether you’re coming to participate in the build or just to experience the event, we can’t wait to see you at Where the Sheep Sleep!


Where the Sheep Sleep is an entirely participant-driven event. The participants make the event what it is. That means YOU are in charge of your own experience!

Dream Camps

Dream Camps are the interactive core of Where the Sheep Sleep. They create a visually stimulating environment,  provide  communal space, and opportunity for interaction.

Whether that be a gifted bar, yoga sessions, poetry reading or just a spot to cuddle and dance your ass off…


Art is a fundamental part of Where the Sheep Sleep. The term art is quite large, encapsulating everything from large installation structures and sculptures, sound installations, art cars, participatory workshops & live performances.

Imagine this, a wide open field as your playground and performance space, surrounded by hundreds of like-minded people eager to participate with you. It is your chance to shine in dance, comedy, singing, acting or plain buffoonery that deserves an audience!

Step up and register your performance and we will find the best time and place for you to sparkle!
