Stones Corner is slowly coming out of a dry patch, many retailers left when the outlet stores that populated the shopping moved themselves out to DFO. The precinct was left a bit empty and with no reason for people to go there, the area went quiet. Newer retailers and eateries began moving in, the pub went through a revitalisation and the Stones Corner Festival was born 6 years ago.
Headlined by Jebediah, Area 7 and Brisbane favourite Darren Middleton, the music line up was stellar, with a bit of everything for everyone. With the biggest attendance to date, the crowds still moved freely, and people had places to sit and catch up. A kid oriented play area down the Old Cleveland Road end ensured that the festival had a family vibe. The festival is only going to get bigger next year (they might need to expand a bit!) and if they deliver the amazing music, craft brewers and food offerings again, it will continue to grow.
