Venue | Location
Elements Festival 2024 will be blossoming to life within the fertile, rolling landscape of the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Grassy, fresh and brimming with the beauty of the Australian bushland, we are thankful to have found our home within the stunning National Forests of Jimna. Just two hours north of Brisbane, with easy 2WD access, this lush site features an expansive, comfortably flat camping area with plenty of toilets and showers.
Local Region: Business | Wildlife | Attractions
Elements isn’t the only little world hidden in the folds of the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Tucked away within the region are gorgeous little townships and stunning tracts of nature, all waiting to be explored. We strongly urge you to take your time in the local area and stop in at the shops and tourist attractions. Swim, climb, hike, get your adventure on! As part of the Elements tribe, we ask that you leave no trace and show the utmost respect to the land and the people you meet. We also encourage you to pick up your food and festival supplies locally before heading on into Elements. This is a brilliant and easy way of supporting the people who have welcomed you into their realm, and it helps to ensure we are able to share space happily with them for years to come.
Entry | Exit Venue Times
The gates to your Elements adventure swing open at:
- 10am on Thursday the 25th of January for the 4-Day Ticket Holders
- 8am Friday the 26th January for the 3 Day Ticket Holders
- 8am Saturday for 2-Day Ticket Holders.
Anyone arriving before these times will be asked to wait outside, so plan your trip accordingly.Our mini-world winds down late on Sunday night. However, the markets will remain open long enough for you to stock up on rations and replenish your body before having a good night’s sleep. In the interests of your safety, we encourage you to stay with us Sunday night and drive home when you’re nicely rested on Monday morning. You have until 2pm Monday afternoon to get on the road.
To gain access to the site for Elements Festival 2024, your vehicle will need to have a vehicle pass clearly displayed. The small $40 fee covers our traffic management costs and also helps promote carpooling and reduces the overall number of vehicles on-site. This has a positive impact on the environment, the local community and, last but certainly not least: you. With fewer vehicles getting around, you get to enjoy a safer and less crowded camping area. While vehicle passes may be purchased on entry at the front gate, we encourage you to be considerate of your fellow Elementals and grab one online. This is nice and easy for you while also cutting down processing time at the gate. Motorbikes get a free pass. No Passouts – if you leave, you will need to purchase another festival ticket and vehicle pass to re-enter the festival site.
While Elements Festival is a world unto itself, we are very aware of the greater one within which we exist. We’re passionate about environmental preservation because, without our glorious natural setting, Elements would have no place to call home. One of a number of environmental initiatives we have in place is our commitment to carpooling. Our vehicle fee is a part of this drive. Every vehicle that enters our campground will be subject to a $40 fee which covers traffic management costs but, more importantly, reduces the number of vehicles on site. Not only does this leave more sweet camping spots for you lot to enjoy, but it also has less of an impact on the local environment. While it is a definite win for nature, carpooling will also save you cash on fuel and the vehicle pass, meaning it’s wins all around if you play it right. Since this is pretty important, let’s get super clear on how awesome carpooling is. You get to:
- Help the environment by having fewer cars on the road and in the campgrounds
- Boost your festival funds by sharing fuel and vehicle pass costs
- Get amped up on the mad vibes of having a car full of happy campers
- Enjoy a safer ride home as you can share driving duties, look out for each other, and make sure the driver is rested and alert enough to be behind the wheel.
Getting There | Travel Safe
We cannot stress enough how important it is to drive safely and responsibly to and from Elements Festival 2024. Make sure you are well-rested, pay attention to all road signs and don’t exceed the speed limit. Do not drive under the influence of alcohol or any illicit substances. Expect RBTs and Drug Swab Testing at the entry and exit of every festival you go to, including Elements, and act accordingly. Even if you feel like you’re safe to drive, you just don’t need that kind of stress in your life. More importantly, we all need to be mindful of road safety for our fellow festival-goers and the local community who have welcomed us in.Your most important mission at Elements Festival 2024 is to take care of yourself, and this includes getting out to the festival and home again safely. The best way to achieve this is to ensure you are well-rested before heading out to site and before heading home again. If you’re driving, pay attention to all road signs, and don’t exceed the speed limit. Never drive under the influence of alcohol or any illicit substances. Australia is a land of hardcore rules and regulations, so assume that there will be Random Breath Testing and Drug Swab Testing, and plan your trip accordingly. It doesn’t matter if you feel safe to drive. It matters what’s in your system. So, instead of playing into the media’s anti-festival stereotypes, let’s fight the system by respecting the people we share the roads with and building a reputation they can’t criticise.To help you make the right choices, Blow Me First will be offering a drink and drug testing service all throughout the event. If in doubt, please hit these guys up as driving under the influence can be horribly life-changing in more ways than one.
We are all about making your Elements journey as hassle-free as possible so you can dedicate maximum bandwidth to activating party mode. So, if driving out to site isn’t an option for you, we have our very own shuttle bus delivering Elementals out to site on Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings. You can choose to return on Saturday, Sunday or Monday, whatever works for you. To unlock this plush chauffeur service, you’re looking at $50 per person for a one-way ticket and $80 per person for a return ticket.Shuttle Bus Pick Up | Drop Off Locations & ScheduleShuttle Bus departs/returns to Brisbane Domestic Airport.
