After its inaugural event was staged just prior to the world closing down last year, Nine Lives Festival returns in 2021 with a line-up headlined by Stella Donnelly, Mildlife and Tropical F... Storm.
To return to The Tivoli (both indoors and outdoors) next month (26 June), Nine Lives Festival is the ultimate block party of indie music goodness to share with mates while having a boogie (yes, dancing is allowed and encouraged).
While the 2020 event sold out, given the current restrictions on larger gatherings this year's Nine Lives Festival will have a reduced capacity of less than 50 per cent of tickets than last year. It means there'll be more room to spread out and soak up the vibes, but you'll need to act quick to secure your passes.
There'll be two stages operating, with DJs (Dameeeela, DJ Heartbeats, Mumgenes, Rock Lobster, In the Flowers and First Beige DJs) spinning the tunes from noon into the evening hours of Tivoli's carpark alongside a healthy serving of the city's best food trucks.
The musical line-up is also a tasty treat; joining Perth's award-winning singer-songwriter Stella Donnelly, jazz/ kraut groove masters Mildlife and acid punk scuzzheads Tropical F... Storm will be Gordon Koang, known as South Sudan's King of Music, Melbourne psych-collective Bananagun, and genre-benders Cool Sounds.
If '80s-'90s alternative is more your jam, then Floodlights are for you, while those who dig jazz-funk instrumentals, Surprise Chef make a rare trip north.
A bunch of up and coming acts will also be part of the festivities: Charly, Family Jordan, Lucky Idiot, Maple Glider, and Middle Name Dance Band.
Tickets go on sale at 11am on 25 May. More information.Nine Lives Festival takes place at The Tivoli (Brisbane) 26 June.
