With Earth Frequency Festival only 2 days away, we want to make sure you are all up to date and aware of arrival times for this years event.

Arrival Times and Entry

Moving forwards from a 24 hour doof style event to a transformational model with the big stages closing at midnight is a big change, however it's one that we have embraced in the name of sustainability, creating a more holistic flow and keeping our fantastic venue for many years to come. But the fun doesn't stop at midnight, we've been working hard to create an outstanding after-hours entertainment menu that will provide a lot of fun times and connection after the 3 big stages close.

After-Hours Adventures @ Earth Frequency

Earth Frequency is proud to announce that this year we’ll be joining the BYOB movement and doing away with single-use plastic water bottles. Bring Your Own Bottle is a Green Music Australia initiative (and all-round great idea) that enlists music festivals and artists around Australia to commit to removing single-use water bottles from their events.

Earth Frequency Festival and Open Records are proud to announce a new event concept for the Brisbane techno scene - OPEN:SOURCE.

With Open Records label boss Jesse Kuch relocating from Cairns to Brisbane last year, a collaboration with longterm Brisbane-based label DJ and promoter Paul Abad was inevitable. Together they are launching OPEN:SOURCE as a new concept event aimed at bringing the world’s most innovative techno artists to Brisbane and combining them with the high-quality production and soundsystems they deserve.

Island Vibe is one of our favourite events in the Australian festival calendar. Taking place in October each year, at Minjerribah (Stradbroke Island), Island Vibe is a beautiful roots focused festival in a prime beach location. Having commenced in the same year as Earth Frequency Festival, and with many artists, crews and individuals supporting both events, we consider Island Vibe our much loved twin sibling festival ♥
