If you were contemplating staying in this long weekend, change your plans – The Wrong End Of The Valley festival is a two-day musical feast you’ll want to chow down.

Presented by BTM Management, the festival will see Brisbane’s burgeoning music scene spill out into Brunswick St with the New Globe Theatre and AMPED playing host to over 75 bands.

With a line-up that spans multiple genres, The Wrong End Of The Valley is sure to have something that appeals everybody.

“We’ve worked hard to make sure there is something for everyone – whether you’re a fan of metal, rock, rap, hip-hop, pop, metalcore, whatever – we want everyone to leave the festival feeling like they watched something they loved,” said festival organiser Ben Torley.

“Punters can expect to see a bucket load of talent over the two days. The line-up consists of local bands and some interstate acts too. Amongst the festivities we also have two single launches by The Seefelds and Micropsia and Bamford Cook’s EP launch. There’s a lot to look forward to.”

If the above isn’t reason enough, here’s five more reasons to pull out your credit card and book tickets to this two-day, musical smorgasbord:


  1. 75 bands over two days! If you like the Brisbane music scene (or well – music in general), it’s worth coming to see some of this killer talent.
  2. Micropsia will be playing their first show in what seems like 75 years (really just 10 months, but no one can go that long without seeing/hearing Phoenix).
  3. ForaySoul are sponsoring the event with some sweet MERCH prizes, as well as having a table at each venue.
  4. Stayclose will be there. Reports are that Jordan is giving out free hugs, all day and night (including during his performance). All you need is Stayclose.
  5. Eddie (the New Globe’s [very] American sound guy) will likely be doing sound. His banter is as good as his sound (which is fantastic) so everything will be sounding great all day – 100%. P.S. If you want to shout him a drink, he loves Gin.

The Wrong End Of The Valley kicks off 1 – 2 October at the New Globe Theatre and Amped in Fortitude Valley. One-day passes start at $10 (from the bands) and $15 (online) presale, and $20 on the door. Two-day passes are $30 (online) with VIP packages also available for $50.
