The new Island Vibe date is February 17-20 2022.

We have just released our 1st artist line up for February! In the meantime, the dust is just settling on our October Microvibes event...

MicroVibes 'back to the Roots' was sublime. It was a blessing to return to Minjerribah for our 15th festival. The scaled back event brought with it an intimate family and friend vibe that was priceless. A huge, huge thankyou to the Quandamooka people and the NSI community for hosting us on your magical home.

Microvibes couldn't have been possible without the hard work of event manager Prahlad Cave, site boss Rupert Faust and the amazing crew Caz, Fleur, Teya, Nat, Henry, Damien, Mane, Maria, Josie, Gypsy, Dane, Zak, Chips, Roland, Groover, Steph, Ra, Ian, Tim, Nellie, Kris, Emily, Rana, Wayne, Kat & Ty, Benji, Gabi, Aaron, Floyd, Isabella, and all the wonderful artists, workshoppers and not least, the brilliant attendees who support our jam.
