JIMNA ROCKS is back in 2023!!

It’s all happening April 29th /30th over The May long weekend 

After two successful events the bands and crew are all pumped for this one. 2023 will feature a diverse range of music over the two-day camping long weekend.

JIMNA ROCKS celebrates music in all its forms and offers a chance to escape the city and mingle with the artists in a relaxed atmosphere.

Jimna Base Camp will play host to the 3rd annual Jimna Rocks and is situated in the Somerset Region just two hours north of Brisbane.

Known as "Yowie country" there were reports of a few sightings at the last Jimna Rocks event that cannot be confirmed or denied but coming into its 3rd year the line-up is sure to lure him out of the surrounding bush to join in the fun.

The Jimna State School was converted in 2019 into a 2-acre, flat-level, campground with hot showers and plenty of toilets. Six acres of quiet seclusion, right in the heart of the tiny township of Jimna that sits in the most northern part of the Somerset Region. The area hosts nearby gorges, ravines, creeks, and waterfalls and it’s only 35km north of Kilcoy.

Jimna has no shops or fuel station and no ATMs and the tiny historic village dates back to the timber milling and gold mining days of early Australia.

Every year Jimna comes alive when Jimna Rocks comes to town. Immerse yourself in the bush with live music, campfires with a variety of food trucks onsite. 

You will find the community bar set on a small hill above the campgrounds that makes for a perfect viewpoint overlooking the campground and stage area.

What more could you want for a weekend away? JIMNA ROCKS is fast becoming known as the place to be in 2023. Exceptional music from over 100 artists coming together from Brisbane, Gold Coast. Toowoomba, and Northern NSW for the grassroots festival offering a perfect way to spend the May Long Weekend.

Tickets are limited for this boutique festival that is free of large crowds that you would associate with other festivals.

Early bird discount applies, Tickets available December 1st through Eventbrite

Camping onsite will be capped so be quick to secure yours.

Day passes will only be available at the gate on the day. Gates open Saturday April 29th 8am and the music kicks off at 11am through till 11pm.
