6/5/2023 - With our full lineup released and early bird ticket sales period complete we now move into the countdown to the festival. We will again be having illusionist Ryan McFarling to entertain festival goers, as well as Roost Radio bringing a full lineup of first class DJs. The forest stage should be fantastic with favorites Handsome Sandwich, and K-Man and the 45's. We can't wait for this years fest!
3/15/2023 - We are currently getting our lineup together for both our forest stage and river stages. This year promises to be memorable with many new and returning bands and DJs!
Parking - Northern Vibe has parking across from the main festival grounds. We do not allow vehicles at campsites (with some exceptions).
Recreational Vehicles are permitted on the main festival grounds in designated areas.
Camping - One of the things that makes Northern Vibe unique is that it takes place in a forested valley with a winding river. You can setup camp anywhere in the areas designated for open camping. This allows for a lot of opportunities for shade, and really unique campsites. Out attendees regularly decorate their sites with lights and other things! Be creative.
Fires - Fires are only permitted in designated areas only. No trees should be cut down on the property. We must respect the land that we are so graciously permitted to use for this event.
Security - Northern Vibe employs security personnel to ensure the event is safe. All staff have radios, and are able to handle situations as they may arrive.
Washrooms - Northern Vibe provides clean porta-potties for use during the festival with hand washing stations. They are placed near the main camping areas, and near the river stage approach. There are no showers available, however the river is beautiful and clean and quite lovely to swim in on a warm day!
Food - Attendees should always bring an adequate supply of food to the festival, while we do have food vendors on site, they may not carry everything you need or want.
Communication - Northern Vibe is an off grid festival. Some may see this as a negative, but it really frees attendees from the distraction of being "connected" all the time. Cell service is available at the start of the road leading to the festival.
Glass - Northern Vibe has a strict no glass containers rule. This is to keep the trails safe for everyone. Be prepared, bring cans or other refillable containers for drink use.
Garbage - We ask that all attendees come prepared to keep their site areas clean, and ensure all garbage is appropriately picked up. We do provide garbage disposal at the end of the festival.
