MUSIC NEWS: Festivals are BACK, and Feb 2021 sees the almighty Cog headline an absolute ripper!
Christmas has come early with the recent announcement of a killer new festival to grace Brisbane next February, with a cavalcade of epic local heavy talent gearing up to thrown down at the stunning Fortitude Music Hall for 'The Other Festival'. Boasting the iconic Cog and Wolf & Cub as headliners, The Other Festival will bust out two stages, sixteen bands, DJs spinning heavy tunes and some rock and roll yoga to spread some good vibes after a diabolical 2020.
"We are excited to announce that on Saturday the 13th of February 2021, the Fortitude Music Hall in Brisbane will see 16 bands from all over Australia converge to present to you "The Other Festival...Huge sounds and epic visuals in a venue made for music.

Doors will open at 2pm in the afternoon and crank through late into the evening, with two stages operating throughout the Fortitude Music Hall - main stage and The Faction Stage, in the Outpost Bar, with The Faction DJs holding the vibes down in between sets on the main stage, and Rock N Roll Yoga to expel the body of the bad juju that was 2020!
