In its 22nd year, Caxton Street Festival has revealed a stellar lineup of homegrown entertainment that will be taking to the street on the Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend.
Following on from the success of last year’s festival, which attracted over 12,000 people to the revitalised precinct, the 2016 lineup is an all-Aussie affair, top-heavy with some of the country’s best musical acts across indie rock, indie pop, hip hop, electronica and more.
One of Brisbane’s biggest musical exports, Last Dinosaurs — who have just wrapped up two massive sell-out tours across Australia and Southeast Asia — will return home to headline the festival.
Hip hop powerhouse Urthboy will also be joining the lineup, after delivering a killer set at Splendour in the Grass and wrapping up his biggest tour to date.
Melbourne indie darlings Stonefield will also be making their way to the Sunshine State to perform tracks from their newly released sophomore album, So Above, So Below.
Fresh from a completely sold out Australian tour, Cub Sport will also be performing live, riding high off the release of their latest album This Is Our Vice and their recent appearance on Triple J’s Like A Version.
Sydney singer-songwriter Elizabeth Rose will also be gracing the stage with her unique electronic pop sound, following the success of her latest chart-topping album, Intra, and her national headline tour.
Brisbane indie rockers The Creases will be returning to home soil for the Caxton Street Festival following their national tour with Ball Park Music.
Also making its debut at Caxton Street Festival is the all-new DJ Stage, headlined by special guest Nicky Night Time, with support from a roster of Brisbane’s best DJs, hand-picked to keep the street pumping from midday ’til late.
Other local acts on the bill include Pocketlove, Brad Butcher, The Honey Sliders, The Walters, The Mad Mariachi, and many more.
It’s not just your ears that are in for a treat, either. The iconic street party will once again feature a huge selection of delicious gourmet street eats and seafood from the precinct’s many popular restaurants, bars and eateries. There’ll also be an abundance of pop-up bars serving Sirromet wines, craft beers and cocktails!
Caxton Street Festival will take place on Sunday 2 October. It’s a ticketed, fully licensed 18+ event (kids are welcome to accompany their parent or guardian to the festival during the daytime, but must exit the festival by 5pm); tickets are available now at caxtonstreetfestival.com.au/tickets.
