Hot on the heels of Brisbane Festival's scorching Kate Miller-Heidke reveal this week, the festival has now added three more musical firebrand's to its already incendiary 2019 line-up.
Emma Louise: the first announcement for the return season of Brisbane Festival's acclaimed Tivoli In The Round format. With one hundred million streams and two Top 20 ARIA albums, the multi-platinum indie pop songstress comes to Brisbane Festival to treat fans to special live versions of tracks from her ground-breaking latest album 'Lilac Everything; A Project by Emma Louise', as well the finest moments from her back catalogue.
The appearance forms part of the 'Wish You Well' singer's national tour, but it is only Brisbane Festival audiences that will have the rare opportunity to see her up-close and personal in the intimate Tivoli in the Round format on Thursday, September 19. Tix on-sale 10am Fri 7 June.
Justin Townes Earle: next cab off the rank, on the back of his brilliant new album the Nashville singer-songwriter plays Brisbane Festival for the first time in the fittingly ornate and old-time surrounds of The Courier-Mail Spiegeltent on Thursday, September 12.
Since JTE's last tour down under in 2017 he has married, became a father and released his seventh and eighth full-length albums, 2017's 'Kids In the Street' and the brand new 'The Saint of Lost Causes', the latter of which saw him reunite with long-time producer Adam Bednarik in Nashville.
Bruno Major: the debut Australian tour of British R&B singer-songwriter comes hot-on-the-heels of a breakthrough year amassing over 250 million streams, multiple sold-out North American tours, a UK arena tour with Sam Smith, and playing the likes of Live at Leeds and Bonnaroo.
For his debut album, Bruno Major set himself a task: to record and release one song a month for 12 months. What's impressive is not so much that he managed to pull it off, more that the challenge produced such a remarkable debut album 'A Song For Every Moon'. Catch his intimate solo set at The Courier-Mail Spiegeltent Thursday, September 19.
All three join the already announced The Amity Affliction: Heaven & Hell tour, Jacob Collier and Kate Miller-Heidke, with lots more TBA.
