“From a house party in Highgate Hill in 2013, to a summer weekend camping festival since 2014 and battling all of the odds to keep it going. It’s been one hell of a ride and yet it’s only the beginning” – After a year-long hiatus, The Jungle Love Festival returns for 2020. The exact location is yet to be announced, currently a well-guarded secret, unlike the unique lineup which is now listed in full on the official Jungle Love Festival website. Every act featured this year has been handpicked “for their ability to excite lovers of music and art, not because of where they sit on the charts”. Every year the soundtrack to this summer music festival is so unique and perfectly curated to create a one of a kind festival experience as you float through the grounds, dance the night away, or simply chilling out with friends under the stars – it truly is a unique and tranquil experience immersed in the beautiful natural atmosphere of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. This May 1st until the 3rd come along and experience the freedom that is the Jungle Love Music and Arts Festival.
At the heart of the Jungle love Festival is one thing in particular – Love. Primarily for those around you, your fellow festival-goers, but also the environment. Every year the festival’s organisers go to every effort to move towards a zero-waste festival experience to help ensure that the grounds on which the festival is held is left in as good of a condition as possible, with the smallest carbon footprint possible. The Festival itself is also run on a form of ‘Love‘ – the love of its many volunteers without whom the festival would not exist. The money raised by each and every ticket goes straight back into the festival itself – being a commercially unviable event, every cent from ticket sales must go back into paying the acts, and the hiring of the vital equipment and facilities needed to run some an amazing festival experience.
Without its volunteers the Jungle Love Festival simply wouldn’t happen. The welcoming and inclusive atmosphere is a huge theme for this festival, and they’re really taking a big step up this year with their efforts. New to the festival this year is “The Closet” – a space within the festival where LGBTQ+ programming will be on offer for all festival-goers to enjoy, with speakers and performances that explore the depth of queer culture throughout and day, before being transformed into a party venue during the evenings.
Ticket sales themselves are heavily restricted and sell out at an incredible speed. Tickets are limited to just 2000 sales in order to keep the festival’s numbers at a manageable level, to ensure safety and the comfort of all involved.
