Dots+Loops Nonstop brings a kick-ass line-up of artists to Newstead Brewing Co. in Milton
Brisbane’s music scene is absolutely thriving at the moment. New and established artists are once again taking to the stage after a rollercoaster 21 months. The next big concert celebrating local talent arrives in the form of Dots+Loops Nonstop, which is set to take over Newstead Brewing Co. in Milton on Sunday December 12. If you’re looking for an excuse to gather your mates to sink a few beers while listening to some killer beats, consider this it.
Uniting an eclectic selection of local Brisbane musos, Dots+Loops Nonstop returns for a six-hour celebration of some of Brisbane’s most exciting artists. The tune-filled fiesta will transform the upstairs Barrel Hall of Newstead Brewing Co. Milton into a festival wonderland with two stages, an art gallery and an indoor beer garden. The event will kick off with a Welcome To Country by Shannon Ruska, followed by two of Cre8tive Nations’ incredible artists, Poji and Sela Mahe. A magical line-up of performers follows hot on the heels of this enchanting introduction, with singer and composer Shoeb Ahmad, composer and producer Madeleine Cocolas and cellist David Moran taking the stage. Aria-nominated composer Erik Griswold and the string sensations of Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra will debut Hollows Out of Time for the first time in Brisbane, whilst composer, producer and improviser Cameron Bower will surprise and delight audiences with his unique sound. We suggest bringing your boogie shoes, as more dazzling performances will come through thick and fast courtesy of folk-jazz outfit Cigány Weaver, producer Expo 88 and DJ AVAXA.
Alongside this bewitching bounty of musical talent, the festival features visual art curated by The Third Quarter, a multidisciplinary installation from local artists Tim Tate and Zenobia Frost, and a special exhibition of photography in memory of Cre8tive Nations’ co-founder, LaVonne Bobongie. In between all of the action, punters will be able to tuck in to some tantalising bites and knock back Newstead Brewing Co. beers – which just so happen to be brewed onsite. To make sure everyone can join in, tickets for Dots+Loops Nonstop are ‘pay what you can afford’ (minimum $20), with the suggested ticket price being $35. Remember, every little bit helps support Brisbane’s arts community, which has been dealt a particularly tough blow during COVID times.
