In just one week, music lovers and camping enthusiasts will be running through the gates of Jungle Love Festival. Among the revellers will be Brisbane psychedelic pop-rock lovers Moses Gunn Collective who are returning to play the festival for the second time.
“We played at the first Jungle Love Festival last year and it was great. It’s the vibe of the festival we really love. Everyone gets a bit child-like and let’s their hair down which makes playing there even more fun,” said vocalist and guitarist, Aidan Moore.
Known for their catchy tunes and love of all things sparkly, Moses Gunn Collective will be bringing their own blend of fun to the Jungle Love party. With so much to hear, see and do at the festival (the full timetable has just been released here), we asked Aidan to share the band’s Jungle Love bucket list and what we got was a rocking party guide instead (woohoo!)…
THE JUNGLE LOVE BIG FIVE PARTY GUIDE BY AIDAN MOORE
Get down to Northeast Party House. I’ve seen them play a bunch of times, they’re really nice guys and they put on a really great dance show. At Splendour they absolutely brought the house down, so it will be the same at Jungle Love.
Watch the bands from a blow up mattress on the creek. I think taking a blow up boat or a canoe, or any sort of sea vessel really, is a good idea. Anything you can lie down on in the water. Extra props if it has a drink holder and if you’re wearing a sombrero – that’s sun safety and fancy dress taken care of.
Meet lots of nice people. You always seem to meet a lot of people at these smaller festivals, more so than at bigger festivals like Splendour. It’s always cool to walk away from a festival with a bunch of new friends.
Try not to fall off the roof of a van. Last year our drummer got a really sweet van that had a timber roof on it, and we decided to have a dance party up there which was great – people would just walk past and join in. Towards the end of the night we were sitting up there having a good laugh and I just went straight off the edge. I was fine though!
Doing donuts on the hot pink bikes is a good idea. You might find us doing this in the carpark. Either way we’ll definitely be getting on those bikes!
Learn the words to Moses Gunn Collective’s new album Mercy Mountain and get ready to party. Jungle Love Festival runs from 27 – 28 November. For all full line-up, timetable and ticket info head to the festival website.
