How do you react when part of Brisbane is officially named a suburb? In Teneriffe, you throw a party, which is what locals did back in 2010. It's now 2023 and that shindig is now attracting 45,000 people a year — and, still going strong, the Teneriffe Festival is returning for another year with GANGgajang and Odette among its live music lineup.

2023's event will boast another wide-ranging day of fun, aka the kind of shindig that previous attendees have come to expect. When 10am–9pm rolls around on Saturday, May 27, there'll be tunes, food, markets and more, all helping locals and visitors alike make the most of the bustling locale.

This is all familiar news, because the fest had already announced its date for this year; however, now the event has also revealed its roster of onstage talent. There's still a secret headliner to be unveiled, but the bill so far also includes Flowertruck, Felivand, The Moving Stills, Betty Taylor and Dizzy Days, with the crew from The Triffid — they are right there in the neighbourhood — doing the curating.

Also hitting Teneriffe Festival's two stages: Kurilpa Reach, Doggie Heaven, Tjaka, Radium Dolls and Ghost Mutt, as well as Neish, Smallest Horse, Melody Graves and The Hokum Redemption and Dave & The Mudcrabs.

Between stints of dancing in the street — including the return of the fest's a jazz-fuelled, wine-pouring riverside garden — Brisbanites will be able to sample the area's bars and restaurants, find a feast of from a food truck, hit up a pop-up beer garden overseen by Stone & Wood, then walk around bespoke market stalls.

Tickets are now on sale, with an extra incentive: a free drink. Be one of the first 200 people to purchase and you'll score a voucher for a free glass of wine in that aforementioned waterfront spot.
