MEDIA RELEASE - For immediate release

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.
