Award winning national performers locked in for The Station launch weekend

Temper Trap

Multi-award winning Australian Indi rock band The Temper Trap have been locked in to perform as the headline act of the opening weekend of the refurbished Birtinya based entertainment venue The Station on Friday March 1.

The Station venue is the brainchild of locals Chris and Lauren Hignett who took over the lease of the site late last year.

Chris said he was thrilled to welcome such a high profile Australian band to launch the opening night of the launch weekend to mark the first stage of the venue.

“We had a ‘hit list’ of high profile performers who we wanted for our launch night and The Temper Trap were right up there. They have made their mark on the national and international music scene for nearly 20 years and I think they are a great fit for our venue and the type of people we want to attract to The Station.

“We are also pleased to announce that we have renowned DJ Havana Brown and DJ Brooklyn set to perform on the Saturday night and we round off the weekend with Raw Ordio and Ampersand on the Sunday.

“There’s a strong local flavour to our launch weekend with a number of Sunshine Coast based performers on stage including The Betty Taylor Band who will be supporting The Temper Trap on the Friday night along with Jonny Sonic (The Potbelleez) who will be supporting both DJ Havana Brown and DJ Brooklyn.

“We couldn’t be happier with the diverse range of music on offer for our opening weekend. This is the high quality of performers which our guests can enjoy every time they visit our venue,” Chris said.

Lauren said The Station team has been working around the clock to ensure they are all set to go for March 1.

“The venue looks fantastic and we’ve spent a lot of time and money to ensure patrons have the best experience by investing in the latest sound and acoustic equipment. Our commitment to supporting local suppliers in the food and beverage sector has also been a priority as we want to be known as the family friendly venue which supports locals and we aim to deliver this across all parts of the venue.

“Stage One of The Station will include a major concert venue, skate park, a scooter and skate store, pop ups, a food truck precinct and a bar area with over 20 beverages all from local suppliers which will all be open for our launch weekend commencing on 1 March.” Lauren said.
