Yesterday it was revealed that singer-songwriter City and Colour would be closing festivities at Brisbane Festival this year – and now, the festival have announced the full lineup this September’s music program – their largest yet.
The festival celebrates the 30th birthday of the iconic Riverstage amphitheatre, with a birthday bash kicking off proceedings on Saturday, 7th September. Hot Dub Time Machine are confirmed, along with a slew of Brisbane’s brightest stars – specifically, Cub Sport, Confidence Man, Last Dinosaurs and Clea. Sounds like a pretty good time to us.
