With only six weeks to go until The End of The Line Festival returns to Woolloongabba’s vibrant village precinct on Saturday, 24 October, festival organisers today announced an exciting line-up of live music acts that are set to impress this year’s festival-goers.
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 festival will also feature Jack Carty whose third studio album released in September last year “Esk” landed at number seven on the Australian Independent Record Labels Association’s Album Chart of 2014.
Filling out the festival’s impressive musical bill are local Brisbane acts including Machine Age, indie-pop artist BANFF, garage-psych/art-rock outfit The Furrs, three-piece The Goon Sax, solo artist project Big Strong Brute, singer-songwriter McKisko, and all instrumental jazz funk and rare groove ensemble Kerbside Collection.
All performances during the festival can be seen free of charge with the line-up playing on two stages, the Stone & Wood Jacaranda Stage and the Five-ways Stage, throughout the festival program running from 10am-11pm.
The one-day street festival is proudly supported by naming rights sponsor, South City Square, Woolloongabba's newest urban hub developed by Pellicano and Perri Projects.
