2021 Dates / Island Vibe Album Release & Rudekat tee's


Welcome to Island Vibe!

Island Vibe is a 4-day celebration of music, arts and roots culture held on the magical island of Minjerribah (Nth Stradbroke Island). The festival site is adjacent to the azure dolphin infested waters of Home Beach at Point Lookout and is host to a multitude of talented bands, bass artists, First Nations cultural groups and interactive workshops. Island Vibe is also one of the top-ranked eco events in Australia for our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint through our massive composting system, dish-washing station, bio-fuel and solar power generation and non-consumerist philosophy.



Lock it in me hearties, Island Vibe will be back from October 28-31 2021!

It was heart-wrenching to miss the 2020 event, but it gave us a chance to step back and reflect on the festival’s core values and to re-imagine the event into the future. We were also able to strengthen our relationships with Grounded Permaculture and the Zenthai Community and co create the first ZenFestival on the Sunshine Coast. We are of the opinion that creativity, culture, eco-consciousness and community are even more relevant to our collective well-being going into the future.
Thank you to all who rolled over their tickets into 2021, we appreciate your belief in Island Vibe.

October too long to wait ?
