Southeast Queensland's latest music and arts festival — combining tunes, creativity and luscious greenery.
For the past five years, festival-loving Brisbanites have descended upon a secret Sunshine Coast location for the Jungle Love Music & Arts Festival, which combined a laidback atmosphere, a campground surrounded by luscious greenery, plenty of stellar tunes and performances, and the chance to go for a swim in the creek while you watch a gig. Alas, it's no longer happening; however Yonder Festival has sprung up in its place.
A three-day celebration of creativity, Yonder takes Jungle Love's vibe, runs with it and shapes it into something new. Running between Thursday, November 28 and Saturday, November 30 in a yet-to-be-revealed spot in the Mary Valley, the new fest boasts everything from a stacked music lineup across four stages; to a feast of roving, theatrical and visual artists; to a heap of workshops and panels on wellbeing. It also places a huge focus on Indigenous producers, artists and communities, as well as local creatives.
It's the kind of event where you can dance to Asha Jefferies, Buttercats, FeelsClub, Felivand, Jaguar Jonze, Requin, Sycco and The Jensens, then check out Ruckus Slam's poetry, watch large-scale puppetry, and browse the boutique food and market stalls. Pick up a cocktail from the bar, then explore installations by the Brisbane Street Art Festival crew, get caught up in a scavenger hunt, take part in water aerobics and enjoy a stint of laughter yoga.
Camping and glamping are also part of the fun, whether you choose to bring your own tent or campervan, or prefer to book a glamping spot.
