Australia’s The Grass Is Greener music festival, which first debuted in 2016, returns for its 2022 edition – fanned across two locations and two weekends! The Grass Is Greener will open with its first event on the Gold Coast on Saturday, October 22, and will travel to Cairns, the birthplace of the festival, on October 29. It will feature performances from Alok, YG, Brux, PNAU, Sticky Fingers, and many more acts. Tickets for the event are brought to you by Ticket Fairy.
Handpicked Group, an independently-owned events and hospitality company, and CADA Radio, Australia’s home of hip hop and R&B, present The Grass Is Greener (TGIG). TGIG’s first stop will take place at Doug Jennings Park, Main Beach in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, and will feature the most exciting international and local acts in music across electronic, hip-hop, indie rock, and alternative rock genres. Doug Jennings Park, located on The Spit in Main Beach, has a capacity of over 10,000 people and hosts music festivals and other events on a regular basis. At this venue, TGIG will have two stages: the Need2Freak stage and the main stage.
Attendees will be spoiled for choice as the show begins at noon on the Main Stage and the Need2Freak stages! Singer-songwriter Gaudion will kick things off on the main stage, which will also see performances from headliners rapper YG, electronic dance music trio PNAU, indie rock band Sticky Fingers, deep house and techno DJ Alok, musician Boo Seeka, DJ duo Sidepiece, and singer Aluna, who is returning to Australia for the first time in five years, and many other opening acts throughout the day.
Gaudion expressed his delight at being added to the festival’s lineup on Instagram, saying, “GOOD GOD!! GOLD COAST!! I just got added to TGIG festival on October 22nd!! Tickets are in my bio, and I’m sure you will enjoy your day with this lineup. This is by far the biggest stage I have ever played on and I’m humbled, happy and so fkn excited! See you soon.xx Gauds.”
Elizabeth Maniscalco aka Brux will be part of the festival performing at Gold Coast 12:40 PM onwards on the main stage. Her performance down under comes as part of her BADBOI EP tour, which was released in August earlier this year. Describing her music, Brux told DJ Mag in September 2022,” I don’t know if I should try not to label it, or confine it, because I really do like to switch it up with every release — I’m always drawn to gritty, commanding, noisy music, though.”
Brux also shared a comment with us at TFword about her upcoming performance at TGIG. She said, “The festival is part of my EP tour “BADBOI” and I’ll be playing a special live set singing, rapping, and fiddling with synths and a drum machine.”
Dylan ‘Dizzy’ Frost, frontman of Sticky Finders, also shared a video hyping TGIG at Gold Coast. “We are coming through the Goldie this weekend to Grass Is Greener… its been a few fxking years since we’ve been there so yeah we’d love to see you there and come watch your boys crush it! CRUSH IT!” says Dizzy in the video.
Need2Freak stage will showcase musicians Little Fritter and Wongo, TDJ, Crush3d, electronic duo Sean Rault and Oliver James of Market Memories, Noah Devega, Shimmy Disco and newly added to the lineup, electronic pair Volaris, to name a few.
