Third year of camping festival picks up some tasty headliners.

More Regurgitator More Regurgitator

Now in its third year, Brisbane's Red Deer Festival is really starting to pick up some steam as people begin to hear about the festival, which is so close to home for Brisbane revellers and so very relaxed. The organisers have decided it's time to ramp things up a little bit; not too much, but enough to get a few more punters through the gates to realise just how good this camping festival is, so they've snagged a couple of high profile headline acts for the 2012 event which will kick of spring in the finest of ways.

Headlining are local legends Regurgitator, with Clare Bowditch not far behind and a local contingent of acts including Evil Eddie, Darky Roots, Pigeon, Charlie Mayfair, The Lyrical, Oceanics, Asa Broomhall, Miss Elm, The Dashounds, J & the G Beats, Blake Thompson [DJ set], Little Buffalo, Hawkmoon, Brother Fox, The Bright Side, Hailey Calvert, Jackson Dunn, Open Channel Flow and the winner of the RD12 Band Comp.

The event is BYO and very laidback, but this means there is a limited number of tickets available; you would be wise to buy one soon after they go on sale from OzTix this Friday morning at the cost of $65 + bf. If you're in Brisbane you can also buy tickets at Ed Hope Hair in Paddington (cash only).

The event happens Saturday 1 September at 291 Foggs Rd, Mt Samson.
