Returning for its third consecutive year, the popular End of the Line street festival will once again be held in Woolloongabba in November.
The 2016 program is being billed as the biggest yet, with festival organisers promising a jam-packed schedule of events and entertainment.
Building on last year’s event, which saw 14,000 people crowd the two main stages, live music will continue to be a core component of the festival, with a number of local and national bands already secured.
Festival director Mardi Jenkins won’t reveal who’s on the bill just yet, but she says 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,” she says.
“Shannon has really stepped it up this year, hand-picking a mix of bands and solo acts that are set to go off on the 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.”
The festival will continue to showcase Woolloongabba’s arts and cultural scene, with a number of live installations confirmed, including a collaboration with the Queensland College of Art’s POP Gallery.
One of the interactive public art displays will be an open graffiti area, where people will be able to watch some of Brisbane’s best graffiti artists at work.
The festival will also serve as a celebration of the area’s dining precinct, with a number of Woolloongabba’s most popular restaurants and bars preparing festival-themed menus and extending their trading areas out into the street, to allow diners to enjoy the food and festivities al fresco style.
There’ll also be colourful market stalls, street entertainment, live demonstrations, children’s activities and family-friendly fun.
Retail stores will also be participating, with antiques and vintage treasures, homewares, fashion and jewellery on display.
The End of the Line Festival will be held in Woolloongabba’s Village Precinct (between Logan Road and Jurgens Street) on Saturday 5 November between 10am and 11pm. All events and activities will be free and open to all ages!
