Media Release: Second Stage Lineup Announcement For The Three Week Countdown For Under The Trees 2018
Under the Trees Festival has just announced their second stage line-up of local and emerging bands to appear live on “The Shrubbery” stage at the 2018 festival.
They’ll be joining visiting bands from around Australia who are gearing up to descend on the tranquil Central Queensland coastal towns of Boyne Island and Tannum Sands as the three week countdown begins for one of Queensland's newest emerging indie and grass roots music and arts festival "Under the Trees".
The small combined population of Boyne Island and Tannum Sands is set to swell as music enthusiasts flock to the region for a rocking day of music from local emerging performers and bands from around Australia.
Following on from a successful premier event in 2017 despite adverse weather conditions, with less than three weeks until event day on October 6th ‘Under the Trees’ is forecasting bigger crowds and clear conditions for a fantastic day out for the whole family.
‘We’re really keen to showcase our local and emerging talent from the Gladstone region. And our little town of Boyne Island/Tannum Sands is set to swell” explains one of the festival’s creators, passionate musician (and by day the local GP). Gaston Boulanger. “Under the Trees’ is a family friendly music and arts festival for all ages, organised by the community, entirely run and built by volunteers and lovers of music”, said Gaston.
The crew of festival volunteers have been hard at work creating a number of art pieces that will be decorating the festival site under the trees on Jacaranda Drive, Boyne Island.
With two stages operating throughout the day, the festival will be featuring both local up-and-coming artists from the local area as well as established, popular Australian bands and musicians.
Other acts from around Australia include popular four piece Sydney band Caravãna Sun fresh off the back of a European summer festival tour, Australian festival staples Hot Potato Band and Brisbane’s home grown sibling band The Fergies. Joining them throughout the day on main stage ‘The Nest’ will be Jesse Morris and the Shakedown, The Urban Chiefs, The Benny Nelson Band, The Threadz and Ornaments.
Attendees will also be entertained with roving performances and fire spectaculars thanks to Meraki Circus, Dance and Entertainment who proved a crowd favourite last year with their show stopping acrobatics and fire tricks.
