Media Release: Who's Appearing Under The Trees?


Queensland's emerging indie and grass roots music and arts festival "Under the Trees" is gearing up for another great day out following on from its successful premiere event in 2017, announcing an exciting line up of Australian bands who will be taking to the stage on 6th October 2018. 


A laidback music and art festival, Under the Trees is located quite literally 'under the trees' between the soccer fields and oval at Jacaranda Drive, Boyne Island. Located just a short 30 minute drive south of Gladstone, Boyne Island is a picturesque coastal community centred on attractive beaches, riverside walkways, parklands and recreational activities. Under the Trees is organised by the community, for the community, entirely run and built by volunteers.


With just two months to go until the second annual Under the Trees festival, the first nine artists have been announced as part of the one-day family friendly event. Headlining the event is popular four-piece band Caravãna Sun, who will be performing at the festival as part of their Silver Linings EP Tour. Currently undertaking a UK/Europe Summer tour, the Sydney based group will be closing out the festival with their signature sound.


The Fergies, Brisbane’s home grown five-piece sibling band, are back by popular demand. Their toe-tapping folk, rock and blues easily made them a crowd favourite at last year’s festival and will no doubt prove to be popular once again.Joining them on the main stage will be the 10 piece brass ensemble Hot Potato Band, whose highly energetic performances have been festival favourites across Australia since they began touring in 2015.


In addition to feature artists on the main stage ‘The Nest’, the festival will have a second stage ‘The Shrubbery’ dedicated to showcasing local up and coming performers. Attendees will also be entertained with roving performances and fire spectaculars thanks to Meraki Circus, Dance and Entertainment. Offering a day packed full of entertainment, the 2018 line-up will have something for everyone and is not to be missed! The complete line-up announcement can be found following;
