“There has never been a more crucial time for people to support the hard-hit entertainment industry after COVID-19 health concerns shut down all live gigs for the better half of 2020,” reads a statement from organisers.
“After months couped up inside, event organisers at To The Point are excited to give people something to look forward to!”

The announcement comes after several Queensland venues announced they would be reopening for socially-distanced gigs next month. Brisbane favourite The Zoo will relaunch with a series called The Zoo Goes Anti-Social, which will see performances from Butterfingers, Bugs, The Steele Syndicate and more. Meanwhile, The Triffid has announced a month-long festival called Cabin Fever, which will include seated outdoor gigs with a lineup that includes Bernard Fanning, Troy Cassar-Daley, Hatchie and Sweater Curse.
In New South Wales, the government has announced it will relaunch live music in November with 1,000 planned gigs in Sydney and regional areas. Paul Kelly, Tones and I, Missy Higgins, Thelma Plum, The Teskey Brothers, Jimmy Barnes, Birds of Tokyo and more are among the artists who have already signed on to perform.
