Jungle Love Festival is a festival like no other. If my name was Alice, Jungle Love would be my Wonderland. Walking through those festival gates was like falling down the rabbit hole into a secret land. In this spirited festival-land, everyone was at ease, considerate, having fun and just generally pleased to be hanging out listening to some of the finest music from our local scene. When someone tells you Jungle Love is ‘unique’ – take their word for it, because it is!
On Saturday we got to see some of Brisbane’s best up-and-coming acts strut their stuff (we’re looking at you Vulture Circus, Ayla, The Brains Trust and Baskervillain). We also soaked up some sun swimming in the creek, giggled manically trying to ride the hot pink bikes without injuring anyone (uncoordinated – enough said) and hung out in the aptly named ‘Chai Tent’ where we left with a newly formed addiction to iced chai.
Besides the music of course (which was SUPERB), the standout feature of the festival was the people. Jungle Love had this amazing community spirit akin to being on holidays with your entire extended family. Everyone managed to do their own thing whilst still being approachable and open to making new friends. An unhappy/rude/egotistical person at Jungle Love we never did meet. This was a place full of happy vibes and good times!
Here’s a few happy snaps of how we spent our time…
Kudos to you Jungle Love Festival, we’ll be back next year!!
