Brisbane’s favourite record store Jet Black Cat Music and Handsome Tours have announced the return of Nine Lives Festival! Taking place in Brisbane on Saturday 26th June 2021 following its acclaimed debut in 2020, the one-day, two-stage event will take the iconic Tivoli. The safety of patrons will remain paramount, with the festival taking place in a significantly reduced capacity, however dancing will be allowed as restrictions ease nationwide.
Leading the line up is Perth songwriter Stella Donnelly, jazz/kraut groove masters Mildlife and post-apocalyptic, acid punk scuzzheads Tropical Fuck Storm. We'll also be seeing South Sudan's King of Music, Gordon Koang, Melbourne's psych-collective Bananagun, genre-bending six-piece Cool Sounds Floodlights and Surprise Chef’s take to the stage.
If that’s not enough, Nine Lives has once again invited a bunch of the best up-and-coming acts from across the nation including Charly, Family Jordan, Lucky Idiot, Maple Glider, and Middle Name Dance Band. And as always, punters are encouraged to dance their way through the day as outdoors will be flooded with beats by DJs including Dameeeela, DJ Heartbeats, Mumgenes, Rock Lobster, In the Flowers and First Beige DJs.
