Local Festival to Support MND
The popular Stones Corner Festival is back this May for its sixth year with a stellar line=up of some of the country's best-known music acts.
Get ready to check out sets from Jebediah, Brisbane's own Darren Middleton of Powderfinger and Tim Steward of Screamfeeder's band We All Want.
Nineties ska-punk band Area-7 are also on the bill along with Brisbane rockers Cheap Fakes and Townsville punkabilly group The VanKeys. Sing along in the festival pub choir.
After consuming all that music and singing, grab a bite to eat at one of the many food trucks including Chipstars Loaded Gourmet Fries. Cool down with an assortment of specialty beers from brewers including Pirate Life, Brick Works and Little Creatures brewing companies.
This free festival will run on 5 May from 10am (for market stalls), 12pm (for the start of bands) and wrap up at 10pm at Logan Road, Greenslopes. Funds raised will support the MND and Me Foundation. The foundation which supports motor neurone disease was established by Scott Sullivan, a husband and father of two children, who was diagnosed with MND in 2010 at the age of 38. Recent statistics estimate there are approximately 1,200 people in Australia currently diagnosed with MND and about 400 new diagnoses each year.
So get along to this stellar, local event, enjoy the entertainment and food and support a good cause at the same time.
