Jailbreak Festival 2019

Jailbreak Festival 2019

In March 1989, prisoners performed the single largest break out in Queensland’s prison history. Using a departing laundry truck for gate access, thirty prisoners made a dash for freedom. Eight prisoners, through gun fire from the tower made The Great Escape!

Thirty years later, Jailbreak Festival is coming to Boggo Road Gaol!

With an alt-rock line-up that celebrates Brisbane’s good, bad and downright ugly, it’s time to throw aside your corporate ties and put on your best boogie boots.

The first release of bands includes The Jensens, Great Såge, Bad Sext, Two and a Half Elephants, Shadows Without Substance, The Plane Sailors and  Gabrielle Kerr, with more acts to be announced.

Tickets are on sale soon! Jailbreak Festival is a licensed event that is strictly 18+. Poster art by Freak Street.
