Shop for vintage treasures

The Woolloongabba Antique Centre will also be a big part of the festival. The centre will bring together an eclectic mix of vintage and antique dealers and traders to create a collectors and pickers paradise called the Substation Antiques Collective. Based in the shadow of the old electrical substation in Jurgens St Park, the collective will centre around a version of the centre’s milk bar cafe.
Musician Golden Sound is set to perform at The End of the Line Festival. Peter Golikov (aka Peter G) is a keyboardist and producer hailing from Brisbane. He first began his musical journey in 1986, studying classical piano for 10 years, and a natural progression then led him towards jazz and funk music , and later to hand percussion and drums in 1995. Since then he has continued to follow his love of funk and soul music, adapting his “Golden Sound” live ensemble, to resemble the classic 1970’s feel good funk sound, with swirling synths, driving rhythms and sizzling horns, creating a palette of sonic goodness.
The Welcome to Country song at The End of the Line Festival will be performed by Maroochy Barambah. She is the Songwoman and Law-woman of the Turrbal People – the Traditional Owners of Brisbane and a direct descendant of Daki Yakka (Chief of the Old Brisbane Tribe).
