Your prayers have been answered. We’re thrilled to welcome London Grammar for the Festival's marquee music event, supported by international act James Vincent McMorrow along with Australian acts The Kite String Tangle, Mansionair and Wafia.
This massive all-ages show at Riverstage is exclusive to Brisbane Festival.
London Grammar is the Brit Award-nominated three-piece whose first full studio album ‘If You Wait’ was iTunes’ Album of the Year. The long-awaited second album ‘Truth Is A Beautiful Thing‘ - which shot to the number one spot in the UK album chart when it was released in June - will be the centre piece of this Riverstage concert, making Brisbane audiences some of the first to hear the band’s haunting new sound. Produced by the legendary Paul Epworth (Florence + The Machine, Adele), the album is an introspective reflection on relationships, heartbreak, trust and truth.
Dublin-born singer/songwriter James Vincent McMorrow stunned audiences last year when he performed at the 2016 Splendour In The Grass. Earlier this year he performed five sold-out headline shows across Australia, showcasing material from his heralded album, ‘We Move’. Now the folk star, turned R&B maestro returns with material from his most recent release ‘True Care’, bringing his majestic voice to hit songs such as ‘Higher Love,’ ‘We Don’t Eat,’ ‘Get Low,’ and ‘Rising Water’.
Home grown talent The Kite String Tangle is fresh from releasing his stunning debut self-titled album (which hit #1 on iTunes' Electronic chart) and playing an awe-inspiring set at this year's Splendour In The Grass.
Mansionair have had a whirlwind three years since releasing “Hold Me Down” in early 2014, and have since sold out headline shows, played the coveted Laneway Festival and Splendour in the Grass, with their newest single, “Easier”, just released.
Wafia is the Brisbane-based singer-songwriter who has already packed out the Tiny Dancer stage at Splendour In The Grass and performed at the Sydney Opera House, carving a niche for herself as one of the most distinctive voices in the crowded field of rising local R&B stars.
Don’t miss out on the chance to have your soul shaken by your ethereal faves and their friends at this stunning day and night at Brisbane’s Riverstage.
