One of Queensland's most adored music, food and art festivals The Grass Is Greener is growing in 2022 and today announces its long overdue national expansion: "With our plans to grow The Grass is Greener into a national festival falling through in 2020, we couldn't be more thrilled to bring regional Australia a truly unique offering they deserve."
From Saturday, October 22nd, The Grass Is Greener will be kicking off at the Gold Coast and for the first time ever heading south to Canberra on the 23rd of October, then onto it’s beloved birthplace of Cairns on the 29th of October, before journeying even further south and finishing in Geelong on the 30th of October.
Starting as a pipedream amongst mates, The Grass Is Greener quickly became the marquee festival in the FNQ. Since its triumphant debut in 2016, The Grass is Greener began to play a vital role fostering local emerging Australian artists in regional centres alongside major Australian acts Amy Shark, All Day, Hayden James, Ocean Alley and spotlighting international hip hop Tyga when he was at the height of his career.
This year, the festival will continue its pledge of creating memorable moments for regional punters with a considerable investment into the construction of each venue. Multiple themed stages, adventurous activations and a renewed VIP package program that will provide festival goers with an unforgettable experience.
