After a long wait of four years, hip hop enthusiasts are feeling exciting again as the premiere hip hop event in the country is making a comeback. According to the official statement released by the organizers yesterday, the Sprung Festival will be organized on 28th October at Parkwood in Queensland.
The popular hip hop event, Sprung Festival, became a regular event in Brisbane after its debut in 2011 but there was no further news for a long time after the last event in 2014. Even though the debut event was a major success with participation from Hilltop Hoods, 360, Seth Sentry, Illy, and Thundamentals, there was a 4-year break for some unknown reasons.
According to the recent statement released by the organizers, they were waiting for the right time to bring back Sprung Festival. It looks like the right time has finally arrived.
“We are now seeing artists that were once on at midday on our stages taking to the headline spots and a whole new wave of incredible artists that we can’t wait to showcase,” organizers said in their recently published statement.
This shows that the festival is all set to once again provide a platform to popular hip hop stars and some new talent that we can’t wait for anymore. The organizers may also have some surprises for the audience as their official statement on their website also talked about some last minute tricks up their sleeves.
It also looks like that Sprung Festival will become a regular yearly event for hip hop lovers as the organizers assured their followers that they are back for the long run. There is still no news about the final participants but like before, it is expected that the event will host a mix of old and new artists.
The final list of participants will be announced on this Friday, 18th August and pre-sale tickets will be available from 21st August, next Monday on the official website. For the general public, tickets will be available for sale from 24th August, Thursday.
The tickets for the general public are available for $79 while pre-sale tickets are available for $69 + b/f.
