BRISBESTFEST @ West End, Brisbane

Not being on Facebook certainly has its drawbacks, namely finding out about gigs late. That was the case with BRISBESTFEST but I was still able to show up after work and take a few frames. Desmond Cheese were on when I finally arrived so there wasn’t long to go unfortunately.

Massive respect to Kel and the crew for organising an event like this and it was all for a good cause! Plenty of people still showed up even in the winter rain so good on you people, awesome to see. I’ve copied an excerpt from the official website which best summarises the event.

Brisbestfest is an exciting new “mini-fest” celebrating Brisbane’s vibrant urban arts scene with a day of live graffiti, hip hop & soul music, street food, a stunning art exhibition and more. The event kicks off at 2pm and runs until 8pm on 29 June at Loading Dock Café and adjoining car park, West End.

The block-party style event will feature music from The Optimen, Bankrupt Billionaires, Desmond Cheese, DJ Butcher, MKO, Rainman, Samedi Sound System and more, plus an exclusive “Brisbane-themed” group exhibition and live, large-scale mural art from Fintan Magee, Cezary Stulgis, Ellen Stapleton, David Don, Guido van Helten, Treaz, Sam Hillcoat, Magnus McTavish, Elana Mullaly, Ankia Lister, Drapl and other world-class local talent. There will also be a boutique beer and wine bar with all profits being donated to Brisbane Youth Service – a vital community service supporting Brisbane’s homeless and at risk youth.
