Now heading in its third year, the Jungle Love Music and Arts Festival has rapidly gone from the little-DIY-festival-that-could to one of the region’s most vibrant and punter-friendly. We are proud to announce an epic 53-act line-up, a veritable smorgasbord of the best rising talent the great south east can muster across three jam-packed stages.
Acting more as a surreal wonderland than a music festival, every part of Jungle Love has been meticulously pored over to provide a liberating and immersive experience for all attendees. A luscious campsite nestled under a breezy canopy of trees, surrounded by a freshwater stream (that you can swim in) is the backdrop, and music is the soundtrack. Pulling out an array of impressive one-of-a-kinds; creativity is at the core of every planning stage and Jungle Love 2016 steps it up a notch.
Featuring a massive two story treehouse-bar towering above the site in between the two main stages, the top floor will function not only as a brilliant place to take in the serene surroundings but also as a dedicated gold bar, for artists and those who want to embrace the full Jungle Love experience.
In addition to this brand new bar, we have a few other surprises in store. Whispers have begun of secret micro-venues dotted across the site. Hidden experiences and pleasant surprises are a Jungle Love tradition; stumble across visual art installations and impromptu performances, but those with a keen eye or a little bit of luck might find themselves in secret locations, immersed in weird and wonderful circumstances.
Jungle Love is a 100 per cent inclusive environment. Plus, a festival with ‘Love’ in the name should probably celebrate just that. Right? Hardcore Jungle Lovers can make it official any way they want with an (unofficial) ceremony in the Jungle Love on site chapel The Sanctuary of Seduction. The bikes are also back this year, but with a twist. The festival declares its love for all people (especially the LGBTQ community) by offering up free rainbow coloured bicycles to ride across the site. Pick up a bike, it’s yours. Not using it? Pay it forward to the next gem with tired feet.
To top it all off, this absolute paradise is BYO and culinary options are in abundance with offerings far superior to the typical daggy dagwood dog one might find elsewhere. Not only will your taste buds thank you but your belly will too.
So come celebrate life, celebrate music, celebrate creativity and celebrate friendship. Float in the creek with a beer, discover your new favourite band and meet your new best mates. The Jungle Love community awaits.
Jungle Love will be held at Borumba Deer Park, near Imbil, on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 November. Camping is available from 24-26 November inclusive. Those of you there on the Thursday night will be treated to a pre-festival Treehouse Party to christen the brand-new Treetop Bar, soundtracked by the awesome Accomplice Collective, Lena Avaxa, Mood Swing & Chevy Bass and more.
