We're pleased to announce that in 2017, Earth Frequency will be returning to our awesome venue - Ivory's Rock. Here's a list of FAQ which should cover all your questions!
The 2017 edition of Earth Frequency Festival is set to take place once again at Ivory's Rock. Located near Peak Crossing, in the lush setting of the Scenic Rim, South-East Queensland, Ivory's Rock is a beautiful outdoor events venue. With its natural vibe and top notch facilities and amenities, we believe this is one of the most beautiful and comfortable festival venues in Australia !
Tell me some of the great things about this venue!
Lush location, a shorter drive for most of our audience, flat camping, good roads and easy access and good roads, over 150 flushing toilets and 100 showers!
Is there a cost involved for the showers ?
No! We are happy to say that your ticket includes your site access for 4 days and that this includes full access to the top notch toilets and showers blocks for the full time onsite.
What are the music running times?
Full set times will be released late January. The three big stages (Main Stage, Earth Pod, Subterran) will run until midnight on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, and until 6pm on Monday evening when the festival closes. In addition to that, we will have The Sanctuary offering music through the night, aswell as some new 'after-hours' entertainment options which will be announced closer to the date. Think intimate spaces, cabaret performance vibes, wonky wind down sessions, interactive games, late night markets, and the art gallery. Plenty to do when the big stages close!
What will the noise levels be like?
Earth Frequency acknowledges that our council noise conditions caused some issues at EFF2016, and we are glad to announce that after some in-depth discussion and negotiation, the methodology being used for EFF2017 and beyond will ensure adequate sound levels for an event of this kind. Drop us a line if you wish to clarify this - anything further we could explain here would be in depth technical jargo, but rest assured we are returning to Ivory's Rock because we are satisfied with the outcomes from this year and the situation moving forward!
What are the camping options ?
Please visit the camping info page for a full run down on camping options for EFF2017.
Can I bring Gas Cookers ?
