Roaring crowds will take the streets for the fifth year of electrifying live music, street food, and open-air markets at Brisbane’s Stones Corner Festival. As one of the city’s largest and most-anticipated street parties, the all-day event will return with a flourish on Sunday 6 May – a prequel to Monday’s Labour Day public holiday. Having boasted some of the country’s favourite acts in the past (Regurgitator, Sahara Beck, Mental As Anything, The Badloves), this year will see the precinct celebrating some of Australia’s best talent, including iconic Brisbane act, Custard.
Live acts will take the stage from 10am, drawing crowds for dynamic sets by The Mavis’s, Screamfeeder, Shagrock, and much more. The members of Custard will strut the stage as this year’s headliner, reviving their cult pop following live and loud.
This year will also see the festival expand its offering across the board. With record numbers each year organisers have been conscious to create the ideal experience and have upgraded their licensed areas a larger beer garden to handle the growing numbers and for the first time offering a limited VIP Canadian Club & Byron Bay Brewery experience with all the bells and whistles.
The festival is famous for bringing together a wide range of craft beer and wineries, coupled with only the best food trucks from the greater South East Queensland only furthering their support of local business. A range of market stalls will also showcase wares from a diverse spread across the community as well as a slew of activities for the whole family.
In 2018, the Stones Corner Festival is working to raise much-needed funds for the MND and Me Foundation. The not-for-profit organisation works to support and empower those suffering from Motor Neurone Disease, in addition to funding research for a cure. Prior to the event, donations can be made here.
