After the debacle that causes the music industry to shut down last year, Brisbane’s Moondoll Festival returns this weekend, June 4, at the Mansfield Tavern, spread over 2 stages and featuring a great selection of rock, punk and metal guaranteed to appeal to music lovers of all tastes.
As part of HEAVY’s ongoing support of Moondoll, we asked some of the bands playing a list of questions to help get you acquainted with the bands before they take the stage.
Today we speak with Supertrooper
HEAVY: Moondoll 2022 is nearly upon us. Does it seem surreal that after all of the events of the last 2 years you will finally get to take the stage?
ST: It is surreal. We didn’t really think things would get back to normal, but they pretty much are.
What does it mean to you to be playing Moondoll?
We feel like we’re part of a family. We feel quite lucky to be chosen to play.
It’s a long day of music. What will you be doing to make sure you will still be standing come your set time?
I’m the drummer, so I don’t need to stand, but the rest of the band will be put on severe booze restrictions to ensure that they can both stand and perform.
Give me your Top 3 Festival survival tips.
