The Mary Valley festival returns for its third year with a huge lineup of local tunes, camping, laughter yoga and water aerobics — and you can BYO booze, too.

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 2020 — and the latter is back in 2021.

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 25–Saturday, November 27 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 significant focus on Indigenous producers, artists and communities, as well as local creatives.

It's the kind of event where you can check out King Stingray, Alter Boy, WAAX, Sahara Beck, WIIGZ and more — then listen to Ruckus Slam's poetry, wander through the visual arts displays, take part in a laughter yoga session, walk across a slackline, do water aerobics, 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.
