Music Events to Attend this NYE
Michelle Zhu | On 30, Dec 2015
If you’re still looking for something to do for New Year’s Eve that will include hours of dancing both before and after the countdown, sharing a smooch with a special someone (or just a sweaty stranger), and drunkenly talking about new year’s resolutions that you may or may not forget in the morning, we’ve compiled a list of gigs to help you ring in this New Year’s Eve!
NYE AT BLACK BEAR LODGE
For something close to home, head to one of the grooviest venues in Brisbane for a cracker celebration of the new year. An impressive lineup awaits, as LA’s Gooch Palms, Byron Bay legends Skeggs and our very own Rolls Bayce take the stage to usher in the new year with some good old garage band fuzz.
FALLS MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL
There are still tickets left for thisÂ big four-day music festival, with a huge and varied lineup including Weird Al, Mac DeMarco, Leon Bridges, Disclosure, Bloc Party and so many more that will extend the New Year’s party till the 3rd of January. Take a road trip down to Byron Bay and bid adieu to 2015 with The Wombats and thousands of others music fans and lovers- not bad company if you ask us.
WOODFORD FOLK FESTIVAL
A festival like no other, you can be sure to encounter the weird and the wonderful at the Woodford Folk Festival.Â Woodfordia always ensures a good time, with a huge programme that includes lead acts by Courtney Barnett, Josh Pyke, Donnie McLean and so many more interesting and diverse artists. Music is but one major part of the Woodfordia experience,Â as there is also meditation, dance hours, and plenty of arts and crafts, which will also ensure some pretty wild stories when you head back to reality.
NYE AT THE MILK FACTORY
If you’re looking for a different scene in Brisbane, head to the Milk Factory to enjoy the sweet sounds ofÂ some of Brisbane’s favourite local names, such as The Major Leagues, Good Boy and Cheers G’Day! We would be very surprised if you could find a more Australian way to spend your New Year’s, we really would.
