Kickstart the midweek public holiday with a night of live tunes by Pandamic, Total Pace, Annoying Neighbours, Mitch Please, Hot Reno and more.
August 08, 2022
The strangest public holiday of the year is upon us, Brisbanites: the Ekka public holiday. This year, the Royal Queensland Show is well and truly happening. And, the day off we all get to enjoy it strawberry sundaes is back in its traditional Wednesday slot. It's still all a bit odd, though — as smacking a public holiday in the middle of an August week has always proven.
No, that isn't a complaint. Yes, if nothing feels ordinary around your Ekka day off, thats understandable. Here's something that'll help you kick things off in style the night before, though: the return of the Hekka Festival to Greaser.
Live tunes will hit the Fortitude Bar's garage stage, as well as a second stage, with the fest starting at 5pm and keeping on keeping on till late. On the bill: Pandamic, Total Pace, Annoying Neighbours, Mitch Please, Hot Reno, Pvcker Up, Naaki Soul, PHD!, Laura Mac and Black Bugs.
