For the five years leading up to 2018, 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, that specific event is no longer happening; however, Yonder Festival sprung up in its place in 2019 — and the latter is back in 2020.

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 26–Saturday, November 28 in a yet-to-be-revealed spot in the Mary Valley, the fest boasts everything from a stacked music lineup across four stages to a feast of roving, theatrical and visual artists, plus 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 check out A Love Supreme, Tom Thum, Luminescence, Black Bear in the Wild and more — then listen to Ruckus Slam's poetry, wander through the visual arts displays, take part in a handstand yoga session, and browse the boutique food and market stalls. Everything will operate under a COVID-19-safe plan, of course.

Camping is also part of the fun (and the price), so bring your own tent or campervan — and tickets are on sale now.

Also, you can BYO alcohol — but it needs to be in plastic containers, and you can also show up with a reasonable amount of booze.
