The End of the Line Festival 2017

Woolloongabba's free street party returns.

A day of revelry is coming to Woolloongabba — and despite the suburb's most prominent landmark, it has nothing to with sport. Instead, The End of the Line Festival is returning for another massive outdoor outing. It's free, it'll be jam-packed with music, performance and art, and it also aims to showcase the best restaurants and eateries the area has to offer.

In its fourth year, the fest is going boutique in terms of its band setup, with one stage, no clashes and an afternoon-to-evening format. WAAX leads the cohort heading to Jurgens Street from 2pm on November 4, alongside fellow Brisbanite Jeremy Neale, Sydney's Flowertruck, and Melburnians Terry, Slow Dancer and Loose Tooth. As curated by Jet Black Cat Music's Shannon Logan, locals Nice Biscuit, Future Haunts and Spirit Bunny are also on the bill.

Those after something other than ace tunes can experience a unique performance that blends live painting, Japanese butoh and singing, thanks to Zoe Porter, Megan Janet White's Theatre of Thunder featuring Stormbodies and guest, Zen Master Jinen Nagai and a few monks that will be visiting from Japan. Or, if visual art is more your style, POP Gallery will be hosting an exhibition overseen by American-Australian artist Bill Platz.

Food-wise, the on-site likes of Pearl Cafe, Canvas, Sorelina, Enoteca, ABFab and Electric Avenue will be serving up their finest food and beverages, in the part of the street party fun that you'll need your wallet for.

The End of the Line Festival takes place from 2pm on November 4 at Jurgens Street, Woolloongabba. Head to the festival website for further details.
