Grass is even greener in Cairns
TICKETS are on sale now for The Grass is Greener (TGIG) festival 2021, set to rock Cairns Showgrounds on Saturday, October 23.
TGIG was born in our own backyard in Cairns in 2016 and has since become one of the most adored festivals Queensland has to offer.
Presented by triple j and featuring two multi-dimensional stages, the show will feature some of the hottest acts in the country.
Electronic dance acts will include Aria-nominated Crooked Colours, off the back of their latest single ‘No Sleep,’ as well as crowd favourites Young Franco and Boo Seeka making long-awaited returns to the festival stage to keep the vibes pumping well into the night.
Smooth funk and hip-hop will be delivered by Sydney band Winston Surfshirt, while rising Queensland hip-hop queen Jesswar will perform off the back of her widely acclaimed Tropixx EP.
George Maple and rising star Iyah May will deliver pure pop pleasure, and acoustic blues and roots singer Ziggy Alberts will once again perform his blissful one-man show worthy of the golden hour, along with many more awesome acts.
TGIG founder and director Oli Frost said it was great to see the festival return after being cancelled last year due to COVID-19.
“It means so much to us to be able to put this on once again this year. Last year we were scared it may never happen again and I am so keen to have one hell of a backyard bash!” he said.
“Since 2016 our tradition has been to invite exciting artists and represent the perfect balance of music for one hell of a party.”
It is a careful curation that has seen the event grow into a staple in the Australian festival community.
Early Bird tickets $100, General Release $115, Final Release $130, VIP $190.
