After a stellar 2017 showcase the team behind the Petting Zoo were back again yesterday bigger and better and for one clear cause – to add some much needed fun to the December festival circuit – and boy did they have one hell of a party planned. From their stellar lineup to their incredibly intricate animal themed sculptures, stages and live art works the two stage venue was set to go off and as hoards of revellers packed into the venue it was to no-ones surprise that the party vibe was not stopping until they wanted it too. 

With the likes of Miguel Campbell, Dennis Cruz, Raffa FL & Dousk joining local DJ’s Boogs, Jordan Brando, Spacey Space & Sunshine the day was jam packed with electronic waves that simply took over your body and made you want to dance along to the beat even if you didn’t want too. In true Melbourne fashion the rain came out to play turning the dance pit into a mud pit but that didn’t seem to worry anyone and as the day progressed it seemed like all and all the party was a huge success!

If you missed out on getting to this years rendition of the Petting Zoo then you’ll just have to wait until next summer to join the keepers in their element but for now take a look at some of my favourite moments from this years show below. This is a fun event you’ll definitely want to add into your summer calendar so make sure you keep an eye out for the release of 2019’s festival dates.
