What is Nine Lives?


The cat is out of the bag! To coincide with its landmark 9th Birthday, Brisbane’s favourite record store Jet Black Cat Music is teaming up with Handsome Tours to present the inaugural Nine Lives Festival. A one-day, three-stage event to take place indoors and outdoors at the iconic Tivoli, Nine Lives promises to be a very Brissy block party for lovers of tunes, friends and community. There will be BBQ's burning, coffee and beverages brewing, dogs tails waggin’, and a world class line-up of artists including Aldous Harding (NZ), Angie McMahon, Julia Jacklin, Allah-Las (USA), Kevin Morby (USA), Kikagaku Moyo (Japan), Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and many, many more. The music will take place across three stages. Indoors will be the gorgeous main theatre inside the Tivoli as well as the very special Double Dingo stage in the What’s Golden room, devoted entirely to showcasing female and gender non-conforming artists. Outdoors will be an open-air stage in the carpark as well as a summertime bazaar of food-trucks, sausage sizzles, record crates, market stalls and activities for one and all. The invitation extends to four-legged friends too – with Nine Lives making available a very limited amount of Doggie Tickets so that a handful of quick punters can bring along their favourite pooches! At the heart of Nine Lives lies its carefully curated line-up, which unites world-class artists from home and abroad.
