What To Expect
Jungle Love Music & Arts Festival
Celebrating its fourth-year Jungle Love Music & Arts is one of the freshest and under-rated festivals in Australia. In 2017 the boutique festival will be held from November 30th to December 2nd by a beautiful river in a cute town called Imbil, Sunshine Coast.
Festival season is fast approaching, and if you are looking to have an entirely unique experience Jungle Love is the festival for you. This year the event will host over 50 musicians from around Australia and the world. The genres of musos range from psytrance, reggae, hip-hop, funk, folk to many other alternative music styles.
The lineup includes big names like Harts, established live favourites Baskervillain, Golden Age Of Ballooning, Karl S Williams, Koi Child, Sex On Toast and Willow Beats, even international fly-ins like British group Henge, and Kiwi outfit Weird Together.
The music alone is enough to make you want to get your hands on a ticket before they sell out, but what makes Jungle Love Music & Arts Festival a majestic wonderland that past punters have described as,
“Living in your dreams for three days straight.”
is the eclectic array of visual and dramatic delights such as cabaret acts like AKASHA and Amy Jane’s Late Night Cabaret, or the poetry/song/spoken-word battle that is the Ruckus Slam. Other performances worth catching will be the Opalesque Dance showcase and the Stormbodies Butoh Dance performance.
It would not be a music and arts festival without a generous serving of artists that will be on display at the ART PARK, boasting talent like local Brisbane progressive artist, Bodhi and Shani Finch an artist whose work reflects her passion for feminism and self-love.
Jungle Love’s considerable music spread is further beefed out by the return of little-known feature the KUNST KLUB, which takes an old shipping container and repurposes it as a soundproof nightclub open until 5 am each night (no lock-out laws here folks). Otherwise, festival-goers will be able to entertain themselves during those hot November days having a splash with mates in the lake.
If all that has not convinced you to grab your ticket NOW, Jungle Love Music and Arts Festival is a BYO (no glass) and LEAVE NO TRACE event.
This policy promotes a sustainable and people-powered waste management initiative. The principle of this policy is basic:
What you bring to the festival, take it away with you! It may sound simple, but the greatest proportion of waste generated at festivals globally is what’s left behind when everybody leaves. Furthermore, if rubbish is left on site rather than brought home with you to be recycled/ tossed at home, it has to travel in a big skip half the distance back to Brisbane, creating even more emissions! – Jungle Love.
