A festival like no other, The Other Festival is set to triumphantly return later this month, bringing all of the rock, riffs and rollicking good times to The Tivoli in Brisbane on Saturday 28 January.

Following its inaugural event in 2021, The Other Festival has rapidly built a solid reputation as a one-of-a-kind musical experience. From showcasing and celebrating an eye-watering array of local talent from the Aussie rock, metal and alternative scenes, to offering an event run by music lovers for music lovers, this ain’t your average festival. Expect a day packed full of wall-to-wall musical goodness, including some of the best live acts in the country primed to incite moshes, bust out some grooves, ravish us with riffs and remind us all why live music truly is the best medicine.

Helming the 2023 The Other Festival lineup is none other than Aussie rock icons Cog. Recently appearing onstage around Australia in 2022 at Monolith Festival alongside Karnivool, Plini and Ocean Grove, The Other Festival will mark the trio’s first live show for 2023 – and a definite must-see for anyone with a pulse and/or an affinity for pounding and prolific rock. The Other Festival will also feature beloved Brisbane heavy-hitters and sequin jacket aficionados Osaka Punch bringing their unforgettable live performance to life, with fellow Brissie prog luminaries The Stranger also locked and loaded to dazzle with their progressive metal delights.

And like a veritable box of rock’n’roll chocolate, Saturday 28 January will also feature the explosive stylings of Sydney’s Bare Bones, Gold Coast spooky punks The Wrath, rugged Brissie heavy rockers Rhino, modern alt mavericks Mass Sky Raid, Brisbane progressive chameleons Kodiak Empire, Northern NSW groove merchants Minds?End, Brisbane post-punks Prince Peace and Gold Coast funk machines Hot Cobra.

But wait, that’s not all! Throughout the day punters can also catch some extra special DJ sets courtesy of DJ Pricey, Osaka Punch’s very own Chrispytown and the enigmatic Beaver Fever.
