Get amped: Rock on Riverside rolls into South Bank Parklands in May – and it’s rocking!

Rev your engines and get ready to rock at Rock on Riverside. Rolling into Brisbane in May, the festival brings some of Australia’s most-loved rock stars to South Bank Parklands – alongside all the usual heavy-vehicle fun.

The amps blast to life on Riverside Green between 5pm and 9pm Friday, May 19 and Saturday, May 20 for two mini music festivals celebrating the best of the Australian rock scene.

Nab a spot on the lawn and settle in for an evening of tunes in the lush surrounds as the sun sets over Brisbane’s glittering skyline.

Watch on as iconic Aussie rockers The Superjesus (pictured above) and Chris Cheney take the stage on Friday night to set the tone for the weekend.

Then, rock-royalty supergroup ARC (Australian Rock Collective) – featuring members of legendary bands Powderfinger, Spiderbait and Jet – with support from Phil Jamieson will bring it home on Saturday night, in true headliner fashion.

Free pre-registration is required with an optional gold coin donation. Registrations open on Tuesday, April 18.

All proceeds go towards Healthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds, South Bank Truck Festival’s nominated charity.

Presented by Live at South Bank, in partnership with South Bank Truck Festival and QMUSIC, this high-energy event is not to be missed.
