The big one in the little pub.
The little pub-stival that keeps chugging along, El Grande is back with a new line-up for 2016.
11 Mar sees Alithia, Opia, Bayharbour, Balloons Kill Babies and a bunch of other rock/prog/punk/metal adherents converge on the New Globe Theatre's two stages. 12 Mar The Grand Hotel will get the same treatment from Caligula's Horse, Awaken I Am, Osaka Punch, Satellites (the list goes on).
"...We really wanted to provide something for the punters that is affordable and reasonable, while also being a mind-blowing experience [...] I reckon we've definitely hit that mark," says Festival Organiser Nathan Bedford.
Tickets go on sale 13 Jan and are available from elgrande.oztix.com.au and The Grand Hotel in Gladstone.
