What began as a festival of Americana-appreciation in Williamstown, Melbourne last year will this year shift its roots to Brisbane; with Out On The Weekend set to return with another array of international blues acts.

Artists announced for this year’s festival are Nikki Lane (‘the new Wanda Jackson’), Robert Ellis, The Delines, Jonny Fritz, Emma Swift, Halfway, Paddy McHugh, and The Warren Earl Band.

The one-day event will be held at The Brightside in Fortitude Valley, with food to be provided by Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall – its whiskey-house inspired menu ranging from popcorn shrimp to mini corn dogs. Out On The Weekend will run between 12 pm and 8 pm on Sunday October 26th. Tickets are $49 and can be found at www.oztix.com.au.
