The Blurst of Times festival announces 2016 line-up

Brisbane festival The Blurst of Times will return this April for a one-day rager across three venues – The Brightside, The Zoo, and The Foundry – led by a strong contingent of both established and new Aussie bands. Tapped to headline this year will be locals Dune Rats, SA’s Bad//Dreems, Perth’s Methyl Ethyl, and Kirin J Callinan.

A total of 24 acts will be split between these venues across Fortitude Valley, with the festival exclusively staying in Brisbane this year as opposed to also venturing to Sydney and Melbourne like previous years.

Also featuring on the all-Aussie line up are the reliable The John Steel Singers, indie soul duo Polish Club, and a whole heap of Brisbane champs like Twin Haus, Waax, and Deafcult. See below for the full line and check out more information plus tickets HERE. Tickets are on sale now and are set at $56.10 + bf.
