ARTIST: Dunwich artist Trevor Petterson added screen printed art to festival goers’ t-shirts during Island Vibe Festival at North Stradbroke Island on October 28 -30.The Island Vibe festival is guaranteed to continue after beingproclaimed as one of the best in its 11-year history.
The festival attracted a crowd of about 3000 to Home Beach, North Stradbroke Island over the weekend of October 28-30.
Festival Director Morgyn Quinn of Rudekat Records said the festival was a success on many levels.
“This years was a beautiful, peaceful eco friendly gathering offering entertainment and activities. I was very happy with it,” he said.
While families enjoyed the family friendly atmosphere by day, Quinn said it was at night that the festival came alive.
“That’s when it hits that higher level. We are lucky to have a great lighting crew who made the night time events really colourful. They have a collection of vintage effects. It’s very pretty,” he said.
Quinn said he believed the festival had a positive impact on the island as the island’s largest community festival.
“A lot of Straddie youth have been born into the festival and are very active members of the festival. Vibe also brings a lot of people from around Australia and international travellers,” he said.
Island Vibe offered a myriad of entertainment from music, art, workshops and activities, spanning three days. It offered a colourful backdrop to surfing and whalewatching which was also enjoyed by festival goers.
