It was the best of times, it was The Blurst of Times. And it’s back. Exclusive to Brisbane for 2016, the one day rager expands its on-ground capacity, taking over not two, but three venues: The Brightside, The Zoo and The Foundry on Saturday April 16 2016.

They’ve done krautrock, guitar pop, folk-rock and even psychedelia and now Brisbane’s John Steel Singers have added another feather to their caps with, “Weekend Lover”. The single is from their forthcoming third album, Midnight At The Plutonium (named after their record label and studio) and sees a mix of seventies funk and soul.
PYRAMID is back in 2010 & bigger than ever!!!
|The colossal PYRAMID ROCK FESTIVAL is returning to Phillip Island for its seventh year in succession! Running from Wednesday 29 December 2010 until Saturday 1 January 2011, we’re ready to announce that this years Pyramid Rock Festival is going to be bigger and better than ever!|
After last years’ apocalyptic electrical storm there was a lot of speculation that PYRAMID ROCK FESTIVAL wouldn’t return to ring in the 2011 New Year. However, after the electrifying, but untimely display by Mother Nature described as a “once in a hundred year storm”, festival organisers have bunkered down to ensure that Pyramid 2010 has the capacity to deal with any out of the ordinary event.
Booking acts for Pyramid began early this year with artists from all over the globe showing their support for the festival, ensuring that this year Pyramid will undoubtedly be hosting its best line up to date with the first round of acts revealed on August 26.
|Having seen a need for a camping and music festival easily accessible to the music fans of Brisbane, the team behind Sounds Of Spring planned The Lost Weekend which was to be involve three days of camping and music situated less than an hour from Brisbane’s CBD.
Unfortunately issues beyond the promoter’s control have made running the event in the way that they envisaged impossible, and have forced the inaugural The Lost Weekend to be moved to the picturesque Brisbane Riverstage and Botanical Gardens.
The festival will no longer be a camping event and will now be held on Saturday March 6 and Sunday March 7, with the same diverse and exciting selection of international, interstate and local acts performing over three stages between 10am and 10pm on both days, still making it the perfect end to the festival season.

By the third day of the festival fatigue and the effects of alcohol made finding your tent site difficult.
It was another cracker, weatherwise… but I was keeping a close eye on the clouds forming in the distance… Click here for Photo Journal
