Summer Touch Festival – Leave winter behind and hit the beach this summer

Kicking off the summer in style this year is the debut tour of the national Summer Touch Festival which ‘rock n rolls’ into beaches around Australia from November. Grab your mates and head to the beach for some of the weirdest & wackiest touch footy you’ve ever played. And with the freshest & funkiest sounds blasting out across the beaches it’s so much more than just a friendly touch football competition, cramming in a full day of DJ’s, live music, ice-cold bevies, celebrity hosts and the chance to win some quality prizes if your team comes out top.

After the triumph of national event SLAM Beach Volleyball, which will be celebrating its 10th year this summer, Live Love Australia, the organiser behind these sporting successes, has initiated a similar competition format but for all the touch rugby and indie electro rock fans out there.

Jason Hirt, GM of Live Love Australia, comments; ‘The simplicity of touch football is unique to the game, all you need is a rugby ball, a space to play and a group of mates. Touch football can be played by men and woman of all ages, skills and fitness, so is the perfect sport to bring to our beaches for some friendly competitions, with a fresh and funky music festival twist, that everyone can enjoy and be a part of’.

The festival kicks off with DJs and team registration mid morning. Then rally your team for an exhilarating day of wacky and wild beach touch competitions before the music takes over at the Vodka Cruiser beach party. As well as top DJs spinning the decks there will be epic performances from some of Australia’s biggest up & coming talents, with the likes of Bag Raiders and Miami Horror providing organic, edgy & raw sounds for you to party until sunset.

Attracting a sporty, fit & fashionable cool crowd Summer Touch Festival embodies everything we love about our nation; sport, beaches, bevies & great music. Part beach party, part touch competition and part music festival, Summer Touch will be taking Australia by storm in its debut year. Just make sure you’re one of the first to be part of what will become an annual world class event, and let Summer Touch Festival rock your world this summer!
