STAGES

MUSIC THAT FLOWS

The party starts with music at the Coconut Club and the But Stage during the day and then moves into the main stages as night. No sets on the main stages overlap, you catch every set and the music flows with each artist's set building upon the last. It all erupts blasting off into the late night beach parties each night.

Don't Forget Your Floaties

Friday, Saturday and Sunday at The Coconut Club from 11am on. It's a party on the beach unlike anything you've ever done before. The party goes all day and it's something you're not going to want to miss, and something you'll never forget.

Workshops

Discover your full potential and ignite your soul at SSBD with  workshops spanning the entire weekend including: Yoga, Breath-work, Meditation, Dance Classes, Painting Classes, Crafting, Intentional Movement and Knowledge Classes from experts in their field. Workshops are all completely free to attend.

Camping As A Collective

We believe camping out together as a festival is one of the most important aspects of the loving culture at Same Same But Different. Camping is included in every GA pass because we want you to stay with us and experience the entire event.

The Coconut Lounge

Where else can you wake up and get yourself a rum-filled coconut and listen to world-class DJs while you float out in the water or sit in a hammock? The Coconut Bar sits inside the festival grounds at the side of the water next to the Coconut Club Stage and holds daytime music and games as well as late-night vibes and some workshops. Friendly wait-staff as well as a stocked bar will keep you filled up all weekend.

Recharge Station

Recharge your mind, recharge your body, recharge electronics...all in the same area. The Recharge Station will play host to many of the workshops at the festival. We'll also have massage therapists, bodyworkers, Reiki/energy healers, sound healers and others as well. Get shade, relax, enjoy a workshop and connect with your body.

Late Night

When the main stages end at 2am the party doesn't stop. Get yourself back down to the Coconut Club or the But Stage for late night beach parties and jam sessions that keep the party going. No extra ticket needed, it's all included in your experience with a GA weekend pass.

What We're All About

Dance, Play And Be Yourself

This is a space to be completely and fearlessly yourself. We don't take ourselves too seriously, have fun and step out of your comfort zone!

The Dancefloor

Everybody want to be close to the action but remember to move carefully & calmly through crowds. Never push through people. If you want to be in the front for a set, your best option is to arrive early.

Harm Reduction

Remember the Golden Rule... “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Offer support to those in need. If somebody looks lost or unwell, ask them how they are. If needed, help them find medical or security staff.

Explore New Music Genres

We think it's important for all of us to listen to new ideas and new concepts with an open mind. Try checking out some new music you never thought you'd like and see where it takes you!

Take Care Of Yourself

Listen to your body! Connect with your body. Drink water, take breaks, get sleep, be present, and know your limits. The future of this event depends on you!

Respect People's Boundaries and Bodies

Personal Space is real. Keep your hands to yourself unless given clear verbal consent. Never assume & always listen. Compliment kindly not crudely. Approach every person respectfully.

Take Responsibility For Your Actions and Words

What you say, the costumes you wear, and the things you do can impact those around you. Check yourself regularly, educate yourself, be open to constructive feedback, and when in doubt ask.

Actively Participate

We all take an active role in creating the SSBD experience for everyone. We stay off the sidelines, exploring the possibilities of being the best versions of ourselves. Put down the phone! Maybe this is the disconnect you need. Turn it off, leave it at camp, let it go. Instagram will still be there when you get back.

Lead By Example

Kind acts are contagious! Pick up some trash and watch the person next to you do the same. See how many kind acts you can create.

Share Your Creativity

Create, take a drawing class, or explore participatory art. Just don’t deface or damage someone else’s art! Create with respect.

Respect The Land

We have gratitude for the land and community where SSBD is held. We strive to leave the land better than we found it and make a positive impact as part of the community. Pleas respect native plant and wildlife in ht

Pack It In, Pack It Out

Manage your camp trash, take all your camping gear home, and leave your space better than it was when you got there.
