Calling all two-wheeled transport lovers! If you’re yet to visit GOMA’s The Motorcycle: Design, Art, Desire exhibition, don’t fret – The Motorcycle Up Late is speeding into GOMA from Friday March 19 to Saturday March 20 and promises to deliver its trademark mix of twilight tunes and starry exhibition experiences. Think top-notch Aussie music acts, DJs, bars, access to the blockbuster motorcycle exhibition after dark and some uber-cool pop-up activations. Strap in, this is going to be one wild weekend.
Don your best leather jacket and denim jeans – The Motorcycle Up Late is the perfect evening experience for lovers of motorcycles and music. It all kicks off on Friday March 19 with a rock-and-roll set from The Hi-Boys, followed by lush melodies courtesy of indie-pop singer-songwriter Tia Gostelow and a dazzling stage takeover by Brisbane punk outfit WAAX. Saturday revs up the action with all-female punk four-piece VOIID and Tweed-based Gudjinburra rapper JK-47 making an appearance. The cherry on top of the decadent line-up comes in the form of a spellbinding set from Australian rocker Tex Perkins, joined by Jez Mead, Lucie Thorne and Christian Pyle.
Alongside the roster of riveting concerts, event-goers will be able to immerse themselves in the rich memorabilia showcased in GOMA’s The Motorcycle: Design, Art, Desire exhibition well into the night. Bike enthusiasts and engine addicts can also get a behind-the-scenes look at some monster machines thanks to Brisbane-based motorcycle custom shop Ellaspede, which will be hosting a pop-up experience that gives an up-close peek at the custom design process and some truly unique bikes. If that’s not enough excitement for rev-heads and revellers, you can also hop to GOMA’s cinema for a special screening of The Great Escape on Sunday March 21, as part of GOMA’s jam-packed Motorcycles on Screen program.
