JIMNA ROCKS is back in 2023

It’s all happening over the May Long Weekend at Jimna Base Camp. JIMNA ROCKS returns for 2023

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 April 29th / April 30th.

2 nights of camping and live music with plenty on offer and the event is all ages.

JIMNA ROCKS celebrates music in all its forms and offers a chance to escape the city and mingle with the artists.
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 for its natural bush beauty and surrounds.

Also known as “Yowie country” there were reports of a few sightings at the last Jimna Rocks event in 2022 that cannot be confirmed or denied but coming into its 3rd year this line-up is sure to lure him out of the surrounding bush to join in the fun.

Jimna Base Camp was the old Jimna State school that 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 is a tiny historic village that dates back to the timber milling and gold mining days of early Australia.
The nearest atm and supplies are at Kilcoy 35k away. Be sure to stock up before making your way to JImna.
Every year Jimna comes alive when Jimna Rocks comes to town. Immerse yourself in the bush with live music, campfires and a variety of food trucks onsite. The community bar will be open and is being manned by the local Jimna cricket club.

You will find the licensed bar set on a small hill above the campgrounds that makes for a perfect viewpoint overlooking the grounds 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.

Gather up your friends and family, pack up the van, get the camping gear ready for JIMNA ROCKS 2023.

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

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

Day passes will be available for those wanting to attend and not camp on site.

Gates open Saturday April 29th 8am and the music kicks off at 11am through till 11pm.

On arrival set up camp and settle in for what’s going to be a great weekend.

JIMNA ROCKS is BYO but we encourage a trip to the bar at least once to support the local guys and our sponsors Young Henrys and Coopers.

If you make it through a night of rock on Saturday, your Sunday will start with morning yoga sessions with Johan Danno and his positive meditation sessions.

The stage fires up at 11am on Sunday giving you time to explore the local area and visit the Sunday markets at the local hall or on the festival grounds.

Kick back and enjoy the smell of campfires and food smells wafting through the air.
