After taking a break in summer 2019, Jungle Love Festival return for their sixth year in Autumn 2020. With the festival being held over the long weekend of May 1-3, they have just revealed a mammoth 29-acts in their first artist announcement, led by the incredible Nai Palm (of Hiatus Kaiyote) and Genesis Owusu across two main stages.
From the folk-rock powerhouse Cash Savage and the Last Drinks, to Sydney’s internationally revered guitar hero Plini and the soulful stylings of Melbourne’s Izy, the roster of artist stretches from genre to genre creating a one of a kind soundtrack that brings music lovers from all walks of life together. It’s a festival of discovery.
This year’s festival will increase their live and electronic music presence, with a dedicated electronic stage featuring some of Australia’s finest producers including Doppel, Cheshire, SKRAM and Avaxa.
A huge draw to this year’s Jungle Love is the introduction of a new stage dedicated to improvised jamming. Organisers have set out to run a non-stop jam session for more than 60 hours during the festival.
“Most of the festival performances are planned, whereas this space will be completely spontaneous with all the magic being created in the moment. We hope this space becomes the birthplace of future collaborations, where musicians can connect, create music together after the festival and hopefully get booked on our main stage in future years.” – Raymond Williams, Jungle Love Festival Director
With great pride, organisers announce the addition of another brand new space, dedicated to LGBTIQA+ programming, aptly titled ‘The Closet’.
“The space will feature a range of talks and performances that explore the depth and intricacies of queer culture and sub-culture, acting as a safe space for the queer community to connect. We believe this is the first time a queer space has been held in a non-queer festival in Queensland.” – Elliott Hunt, Jungle Love Festival Director.
In addition to these new spaces, festival organisers have a few other surprises up their sleeves. Unique community-driven theme camps will dot the campsite, providing quirky workshops and impromptu parties. Stumble across visual art installations and roving performances as you make your way between mainstages. With a little luck, those curious enough will find themselves immersed in unexpected yet wonderful situations.
The rainbow bicycles will be back this year, with more than 150 free rainbow coloured bicycles to be scattered across the site for all guests to ride. Pick up a bike, ride it where you like and pay it forward to the next person who’s feet are too tired from dancing to walk back to camp.
The festival is fully BYO and features an array of culinary delights with all vendors serving only sustainable meat-based dishes (such as kangaroo, ethically sourced chicken and sustainable fish), as well as vegetarian and vegan options available.
