With an already stacked line-up littered with talented acts (think Cog, Mammal, Bodyjar, 28 Days, Aversions Crown, Nick Oliveri and a host more) Brisbane's Dead Of Winter festival have just upped the ante with a swag of fresh arrivals.
The festival has added 16 more bands and 4 sideshows including Brisbane death metal heavyweights Disentomb, New Zealand’s sludge metal kings Beastwars, Adelaide metal legends Truth Corroded, Singapore’s Truth Be Known, Melbourne metalcore act Earth Caller and Brisbane alien rockers Tai Sui.
Plus local sideshow sweethearts The Heart and Dagger Sideshow, Brisbane burlesque performer Lila Luxx, pole dancer Dolly De Ville and horror drag queen Dhalia Dyer.
But music is only part of the Dead Of Winter offering, with this year's festival (that scored a 94 per cent satisfaction rate among 2018 attendees) set to be zombie-fied as a horde of Australia’s best SFX make-up artists face off against each other as the zombie army will be out in force as per usual road-blocking the Valley, with punters encouraged to dress up in horror-fuelled outfits to win prizes on the day.
As 2019 celebrates ten years since Dead Of Winter began, and with a third band announcement still to be revealed in April, the Brisbane festival returns to haunt punters once again on Saturday 13 July at The Tivoli Theatre and Jubilee Hotel.
