The End of the Line festival might sound a little morbid at first, but don’t let the name fool you. It’s anything but dull.
The inner city suburb of Woolloongabba was once the final stop on Brisbane’s old tramways, hence the name of the festival.
On Saturday 24 October the event will once again take over the Village Precinct between Logan Rd and Jurgens St with organisers hopeful they’ll top 2014’s visitor numbers.
“Woolloongabba locals know what a unique pocket of Brisbane we have here,” says Cath Carroll, the Head of the Gabba Village Association, “but The End of the Line Festival allows us to share it with thousands of other people from around our city.”
Whilst food stalls are a festival staple, local restaurant owners will get into the spirit by extending their licensed areas and effectively spilling out on to the street. The aim is that their menus will reflect the theme of the festival.
If unique buys are your thing then don’t miss the eclectic market. If listening to music is how you unwind then make sure you check out the live entertainment.
Back by popular demand will be the skateboarding demonstrations, Jacaranda Stage and the Beer Garden.
Starting at 10am and going right through until 10pm, organisers are certain there will be something for everyone.
“We are working with some incredible local musicians and artists” says festival director Mardi Jenkins, “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.”
