UPDATE: Line-up announced as Grass is Greener brings another music festival to Cairns
UPDATE JUNE 4: Wolfmother will headline this year's Scene & Heard music festival, bringing hits like Joker and the Thief and Woman to Cairns.
Much of the line-up has been announced today.
You Am I and Alex Lloyd will also rock the crowd, along with Magic Dirt and Perth powerhouses Jebediah and Gyroscope.
Festival organisers are also welcoming back Connie and Black Angus after Sneaky Sound System proved a crowd favourite at the first ever Scene and Heard in Newcastle last year.
More artists are still to be announced.
Cairns music lovers will be treated to back-to back music festivals this year, with The Grass is Greener teaming up with Newcastle’s Scene and Heard festival for a full weekend of frivolities.
The Grass is Greener (TGIG) will be held on the 26th October, with Scene & Heard continuing the party on the 27th.
It marks a significant expansion in the portfolio of events for TGIG boys Oli Frost and Johnny Eddings.
Mr Frost said they’ll use the same stage set up and venue to run on consecutive days.
“We are looking forward to delivering another spectacular, albeit, larger festival season,” he said.
“With The Grass is Greener on Saturday and Scene and Heard on Sunday, it is going to be a huge weekend for Cairns!”
Scene & Heard debuted last year in Newcastle, featuring the likes of The Living End, Spiderbait, Something for Kate and Sneaky Sound System.
This year’s line-up for the expanded events in Cairns and Brisbane will be announced on the 4th June, but organisers promise it will hark back to a time when festivals such as LIVID, Homebake and the Big Day Out became etched into Australian folklore.
