Newstead's newest festival combines toe-tapping with keeping your body and mind in tiptop shape.
What kind of festival kicks off at 8am? Not your usual music fest, that's for sure. Live tunes are on the agenda at the Music, Movement & Mindfulness Festival on March 25, but so is something more.
The inaugural event aims to get attendees thinking not just about tapping their toes, but also about keeping their minds and bodies in tiptop shape. That's why all proceeds will go towards the Mental Awareness Foundation — with entry free, but anyone after a goodie bag filled with treats and vouchers encouraged to buy a $30 VIP ticket.
Taking place in the laneway adjacent to Urban Climb in Newstead, the fest kicks off with a wall-scaling session, jumps into Barre Brisbane and Yo! Yoga classes, and also includes mindfulness workshops and guest speakers, as well as pop-up stalls and live tunes. Because everyone will be working up an appetite, Miss Bliss Whole Food Kitchen, Morning After and Acai Brothers Newstead will be on hand to serve up nourishing eats, ready for consumption in the festival picnic area.
