Looking for something unusual and fun this Sunday, perhaps a Sunday session with a difference?
This Sunday 8 June the Staddie Hotel is holding its Inaugural JUNEtunes Music Festival.
The highlight of the Festival will undoubtedly be GANGgajang, always a crowd favourite. Along with GANGgajang, patrons will love listening to Asa Broomhall, a frequent face on the local music scene who always puts on a great performance.
General admission tickets are $30 available through Oztix. $25 locals tickets with postcode 4183 ID and $60 Festival Club VIP tickets are only available from the Straddie Hotel.
With a public holiday Monday, and a setting on Stradbroke Island overlooking the ocean, the JUNEtunes music festival will hopefully be a regular on the Brisbane festival list.
Sundays are made for relaxing. Enjoying a cold beverage while gazing over the Pacific Ocean and listening to GANGgajang sing Sounds Of Then (This Is Australia) - well, does it get better than that? To ensure you don't miss any of the fun, be there at midday to hear Clara Durbidge, John Malcom, Erle Louk and local musician Adam James. The festivities kick on throughout the afternoon and into the evening with Rawrvanity, Kingston Stompers, Pippi Lips, Asa Broomhall and GANGgajang wrapping up the night.
Tickets are strictly limited so don't miss out! See the Facebook page or the website for further information.
