If you knew Gang of Youths couldn’t possibly leave Brisbane off the itinerary for their upcoming national tour, today the Sydney band repaid your faith by going one better.
On Saturday November 24 Gang of Youths will take over Brisbane Riverstage to headline their own festival, A More Perfect Union. Along for the ride will be Luca Brasi, Jack River, Thelma Plum and Charlie Collins.
"A More Perfect Union is something we have been excited about doing for a while now," the band said in a statement.
“Bringing a festival to Australia that we can grow into something incredible for people. This is the first of hopefully many, and we have asked some friends we really respect to join us.”
Gang of Youths have partnered with PLUS1 as part of the festival, with $1 from every ticket going towards the Aboriginal Legal Service.
Tickets for A More Perfect Union go on sale at 11am tomorrow (August 9).
