Island Vibe Festival

Island Vibe Festival | Stradbroke Island | 25 - 28 October

This October thousands of festival lovers will flock to North Stradbroke Island for four days of the best roots, reggae and culture at Island Vibe Festival. Held at the stunning beach side location of Point Lookout you’ll feel more like you’re on an island getaway than a 4 day festival, with the ocean only a few steps from the heart of all the action.

More than 80 acts will grace festival punters with their talent across 4 different stages, showcasing their unique styles from reggae to soul to electro. This boutique festival will feature an exciting and interactive program beyond the music, including craft markets, yoga, sustainability talks, eco workshops and indigenous weaving.

The festivities kick off Thursday night starting with a traditional Quandamooka smoking ceremony as part of the opening night, followed by a weekend full of dancing, live soul and a whole lot of good vibes.

Known as Minjerribah to the traditional owners (the Quandamooka People), Stradbroke Island has a natural beauty not often seen, and boy is it pretty special. Located 90 minutes from Brisbane, Straddie is the second largest sand island in the world and is renowned for its stunning beaches, abundance of wildlife and chilled atmosphere. You can easily take the ferry across and use the local bus to get around the island, or if you’re feeling more adventurous bring your car and get off the beaten track.



Not a camper or need place to stay for the weekend? Book a bed or private room at Stradbroke Island YHA, only a 5 minute walk to the festival action and white sandy beaches.
