Featuring a mass of local Queensland artists that will have you running to purchase a ticket, Red Deer Festival has upped the excitement levels with their second line up release. One step closer to lift off, Brisbane’s favourite BYO festival has announced another 12 acts will be joining the likes of The Preatures and The Kite String Tangle for a weekend of astronomical entertainment at the Mount Samson Amphitheatre on 14 October.

With locals Kingfisha bringing you the dub-reggae party of the century, Transvaal Diamond Syndicate giving off the perfect blues-rock vibe and sibling duo Alex & Bec Crook providing tunes that will make you fall in love with country, punters are well and truly strapped in for a cosmic musical experience.

Offering BYO camping for comfort, a third stage for entertainment and list of acts that will make your head spin, Red Deer Festival is also THE camping party of the year. With house party vibes and a space oddity theme, punters will be transported into a wonderland filled with music and excitement says Festival Co-Founder Bas Pelly.

“Red Deer is basically a house party at your mate’s place, except your mate lives on 40 acres of pristine grazing land beneath the rolling hills of the D’aguilar Range,” he said.

“Instead of listening to an awful playlist on your mate’s iPod, you’ll boogie to an exciting and eclectic mix of emerging acts from around the country while you sip your BYO bevvie of choice, on your BYO couch, while pondering which food truck’s menu you’ll explore first.”

Other artists already on the bill include MEZKO, Leanne Tennant and Fire and Whistle Theory alongside Red Deer Residencies by The Lyrical, The Dashounds and DJ Blake Thompson.

Festivalgoers will have their pick of a smorgasbord of activities and entertainment such as belly dancing, meditation and hula-hoop workshops, the annual ‘Fashion of the Fields’ dance-off contest, and a return of the much-loved Red Deer sack-race.

Whether you’re camping out under the stars or enjoying the music just for the day, you won’t want to miss this year’s biggest out-of-this-world experience!

With ticket’s available from as little as $79 there’s no excuse to not be jumping on this space party rocket. Grab your ticket, couch, and booze and get ready for a space and music extravaganza.
