Bloom Festival Release First Lineup Announcement

Bloom Festival Release First Lineup Announcement
Imogen Sloss

What’s better than a music festival that runs over two weekends and features amazing local talent? When it’s free! Presenting: Bloom Festival. 

Even better, Bloom Festival has been organised for Brisbane youth, by Brisbane youth. Put together by the students at the Fortitude Valley Music Industry College (MIC), guided by industry professionals, this festival has the advantage of a fresh take on the festival concept. It gives the students an amazing opportunity to put their learned knowledge to the test in a very practical sense. They are also lucky enough to have the support of Brisbane City Council, as Bloom Festival is a part of their upcoming Youth Week.

Not only does Bloom Festival showcase local musicians, it also spreads itself across multiple venues throughout Fortitude Valley. These include MIC’s very own 38 Berwick St, Winn Lane, Tym Guitars and Phase 4 Records.

The first lineup announcement has just been released and it’s already looking juicy, with Asha Jeffries, amongst many more, taking the stage.

Asha is looking forward to getting back to an old stomping ground. “38 Berwick St is like a second home to me, and it’s a venue run by students from Music Industry College. What a perfect venue to celebrate youth! I’m so excited to take part in Bloom Festival.

VOIID are going to be bringing their garage punk sound to Phase 4 Records on the last day of the festival, supported by up-and-coming post-rock musician Lucy Dron. In between, there will be something for everyone, with surf rock (Concrete Surfers), deep house (commacomma), punk (Guava Lava), self described “in-your-face” (Cold Pie).

There is more to be announced, so stay posted.
