Australia’s most cinematic rock and metal festival, Wallapalooza, is going national.
Since launching five years ago, the Gold Coast event has become one of the most successful and long-running independent festivals in Southeast Queensland, drawing crowds in excess of 1000 people. And now, it’s taking on the East Coast.
The festival will hit Byron Bay, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne, and each event promises to be a unique and unforgettable experience for punters, with festival organiser, Andy Clark, giving it the Hollywood touch.
“Each show will have a different theme,” he says. “The themes will incorporate difference creative media and props and FX makeup by the team at Killer FX.”
Festivalgoers are also encouraged to dress for the occasion, with themes encompassing, ‘sirens’, ‘dungeons’, ‘dragons’ and ‘pirates’.
Clark says pressure from other cities was the driving force behind taking Wallapalooza beyond the Goldy.
“We’ve had overwhelming feedback from people that Wallapalooza should not just be confined to the Gold Coast,” he said. “So we’re hitting the road.”
The full lineup for each location will be announced shortly. Watch this space.
