Brisbane's The End of the Line Festival grows ever bigger today with the final addition to the already brimming lineup for Saturday November 5. Melbourne's Teeth & Tongue join an incredibly talented pool of local and national band and artists including Fraser A. Gorman, Major Leagues, Banff, Good Boy, Mid Ayr, Totally Mild and more. 

Turning three in 2016, this all ages and completely free event is a street festival oasis tucked away in one of the city's most eccentric communities, Woolloongabba. Programmed by Jet Black Cat record store owner and legend of the scene, Shannon Logan, the lineup aims to complement the quirky community vibe of The Gabba. 

Reliving those Tony Hawk's Pro Skater fantasties is easy at The End of the Line, especially when the soundtrack is on point. Kick flipping back into the festival in 2016 is the huge vert ramp complete with some of the country's top skaters thanks to Skatebiz. 

Priding itself as one of the best dining suburbs in Brisbane, The Gabba's best eats and treats are on offer as well as some of the city's best food trucks. Live art, dance and performance from locals Zoe Porter, Adam Anderson, ACPA Dancers and Clare Cowley are presented by Marc & Co Architects with local street art legend DRAPL painting graffiti murals.

Best of all entry is absolutely FREE. It all goes down at Woolloongabba on Saturday November 5.

21 July 2016

Returning for its third consecutive year, preparations for the 2016 The End of the Line Festival are well underway with this year’s festival confirmed for Saturday, 5 November.

The 2016 program is set to be the biggest yet with the festival organisers promising a jam-packed schedule of events and entertainment that will keep revellers enthralled throughout the day-long program.

Building on last year’s success where over 14,000 people crowded the two main stages, live music will remain a core component of the festival with a number of local and Australian bands and a variety of musical talent already secured for the day.

While the festival organisers could not be persuaded to reveal what they have in store for this year’s musical line-up, they are confident music fans won’t be disappointed.

“We are lucky to be working again with Shannon Logan of Jet Black Cat Music who is curating an incredible line-up of diverse musical talent to appeal to a range of audiences and musical tastes,” said festival director Mardi Jenkins.

“Shannon has really stepped it up this year hand-picking a mix of bands and solo acts that are set to go off on festival’s two live stages, the Jacaranda Stage and the Five-ways Stage.

“While we can’t say much more at the moment, we can’t wait to unveil the festival’s stellar musical bill in the coming months and give festival-goers a taste of what they can expect to see and hear on the day,” she said.

In addition to the main stage acts, the festival will continue to showcase the best of Woolloongabba’s thriving arts and cultural scene with a number of live art installations confirmed including an exciting collaboration with the Queensland College of Art’s POP Gallery which is located within the festival site.

One of the interactive public art displays already announced is an open graffiti area where people will be able to wander through and watch some of Brisbane's best graffiti artists paint live.

The festival’s celebration of talented local artists and musicians will be matched by its appreciation for fine food and drink.

Well-known as one of Brisbane’s best dining districts, Woolloongabba’s popular restaurants and bars will be preparing festival themed menus on the day and extending their trading areas out into the street to allow diners to enjoy their food and the festivities al fresco style.

Other festival favourites on offer will include colourful market stalls, street entertainment, live demonstrations, children’s activities and family-friendly fun.

The precinct’s vibrant retail stores will also be participating in the day with antiques and vintage treasures, homewares, fashion and jewellery on display.

All events and activities will be free and open to all ages with the festival program designed to appeal to the diverse and eclectic nature of the Woolloongabba community so families and friends and young, old and in-between, can all find something to enjoy on the day.

The festival is proudly supported by naming rights sponsor and foundation partner South City Square and will be held in Woolloongabba’s Village Precinct between Logan Road and Jurgens Street between 10am and 11pm.

Details of bands, performers, artists and stallholders attending this year’s event will be announced in the coming months.

With a strong focus on showcasing talented local and Australian bands, the festival organisers worked hard to bring together a diverse line-up of musical talent to appeal to a range of audiences and musical tastes.

 

“We were really lucky to work with Shannon Logan of Jet Black Cat Records who curated the incredible musical line-up for the festival and she has been amazing to work with,” explained Festival Director Morgan Jenkins.

 

A panel judge for the prestigious Australian Music Prize and local music aficionado, Ms Logan helped the organisers assemble a unique mix of bands and solo acts that reflect the eclectic nature of the area and Brisbane’s thriving music scene.

 

“No matter how old you are or what music you’re into there will be something for everyone to enjoy from rock and indie-pop to jazz funk, electronic and folk music,” Mr Jenkins said.

 

The musical draw cards for the day are award-winning singer-songwriter Jess Ribeiro, local Brisbane quartet Blank Realm,Melbourne band the East Brunswick All Girls Choir and Sydney-based folktronica artist Caitlin Park who was shortlisted for the 2014 Australian Music Prize.

The End of the Line Festival will return on Saturday 24 October to Woolloongabba’s vibrant Village Precinct between Logan Road and Jurgens Street from 10am to 10pm.

 

Last year’s inaugural festival delighted over 12,000 festival goers with live performances from 12 bands across two stages, eclectic market and food stalls, street entertainment and even a flash mob dance performance that received rapturous applause from the surprised crowd.

 

“I’m thrilled that The End of the Line Festival is back and bigger than ever in 2015,” said Cath Carroll, head of The Gabba Village Association.

 

“Woolloongabba locals know what a unique pocket of Brisbane we have here. But The End of the Line Festival allows us to share it with thousands of other people from around our city.”

 

Named after the final destination of Brisbane’s historic tramway, The End of the Line Festival will once again be presented by South City Square - Woolloongabba's newest urban hub, located only two minutes from the festival site and Logan Road shopping and dining precinct.


Developed by Pellicano and Perri Projects, South City Square will be the most significant urban regeneration project in Woolloongabba and will define the area as a true mixed use precinct with a supermarket, movie theatres, cafes and restaurants, a childcare centre and a boutique hotel.

 

Pellicano Queensland Development Manager Mr Kent says the $600 million project is strategically located on a 2.1 hectare site within an important urban renewal area and is part of the Woolloongabba Centre Neighbourhood Plan.

 

"It will become a new destination for Brisbane that will not only boost the state economy through job creation during construction, but it is set to create over 350 permanent jobs through the delivery of exciting new retail opportunities and lifestyle amenities for local residents and the wider community.”

 

The End of the Line Festival will build on the success of its inaugural year with participating restaurants again extending their licensed areas out onto the main street and theming their menus specifically for the day. Other crowd favourites such as the skateboarding demonstrations, Jacaranda Stage and the Beer Garden in the Park will be back again with new highlights under development by the festival organisers who are keen to see the event develop into something truly unique for the area and for Brisbane.

 

“We have been having really exciting discussions with a number of local firms doing very interesting things in urban space,” says one of the festival’s directors Mardi Jenkins.

 

“We are working with some incredible local musicians and artists, and we are even chatting to some of the projection artists involved in the Sydney’s Vivid Festival which will add another dimension to the site on the day.”
