Nine Lives Festival
A huge day-long block party is taking over The Tivoli — and as well as featuring bands and markets, it's dog-friendly.
It's been nine years since Jet Black Cat Music set up shop in West End — so, to celebrate, it's hopping over to the other side of town and throwing a huge block party. Come Sunday, March 1, 2020, Brisbanites will find Fortitude Valley's Costin Street overflowing with tunes, markets and food at the day-long Nine Lives Festival, which'll kick off at 11.30am and run right through until late.
On hand to help: Aldous Harding, Angie McMahon, Julia Jacklin, Allah-Las, Kevin Morby, Kikagaku Moyo and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, with music taking over three indoor and outdoor stages. Dance in The Tiv's main space, catch female and gender non-conforming artists at What's Golden, and check out a heap of other bands in the carpark.
While you're outdoors, you'll also be able grab a bite from a food truck or at the onsite sausage sizzle, browse the stalls and go trawling the crates for records.
And, while the fest takes its name from a famous (but completely fictional) feline trait, this is a dog-friendly affair — so you can book your pooch a ticket, too. They will have to stay outside, though.
Tickets go on sale at 11am on Friday, October 25, with human tickets starting at $99.90 and doggo tickets costing $19.90.
