New inclusive arts and music festival heading to the Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine Coast will welcome a new festival from the team behind the Jungle Love Music and Arts Festival and the Brisbane Street Art Festival.

The new Yonder Festival will be held in the Mary Valley region of the Sunshine Coast from the November 28 to December 1.

Lincoln Savage, the festival’s creative director, said the theme of the new event is one of community and connection.

“Yonder is an experiential arts project that has been built from the ground up to provide a deeply immersive avenue for human communication and connection through the arts,” he said.

The festival will showcase everything from visual art, theatre and dance to workshops and talks.

“With a passionate approach to providing the most immersive summer camping festival experience, Yonder will curate a broad spectrum of emerging and established artists across a variety of mediums and genres,” Savage said.

The event will also initiate a waste management program dedicated to reducing waste going to landfill and promoting the use of recyclables and sustainable practices.
