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.”
