Yonder Festival

Maiwar Brisbane

A project born out of love and passion from a small team of creatives, Yonder is a multi-arts festival happenig this weekend that is grounded in inclusivity and experimentation that focuses on supporting emerging and diverse artists in an immersive, collaborative environment. 

Entering the fifth year, Yonder is delivering a slightly different version of the festival this time around. Usually held in the rolling hills of the Scenic Rim Lost World, the 2023 edition will be a three day exploration of Yonder in an inner city warehouse. Yonder will be transformed into an urban experience in a large warehouse alongside Maiwar. 

This iteration is called 'Now is Nigh' and aims to create an experience, an opportunity, a moment for those attending to truly embrace their natural self. Harnessing a desire for connection and expression, Yonder presents the weird and wonderful – providing pathways for adventure. Allow us to deliver you the unconventional, the strange, and the eclectic. 

Yonder Festival Maiwar Brisbane

There are few times and places in life where the truly unimaginable takes place, and in these moments, these precious few instances, where reality drifts and fantasy takes hold, is where Yonder exists.

Built on the core values of community, Yonder has firm inclusivity guidelines that we expect all patrons to follow – ensuring everyone can feel comfortable and safe while losing themselves in the magic.

The 2023 program will feature an expansive line-up of tantalizing music, enchanting performances, engaging workshops, and incredible artists across a range of styles and genres. Gear up for the compelling energy with first anouncements coming soon. Applications are open for all parts of the program.
