HIP TO BE SQUARE: The Station to host two-day BCUBED Festival this May

Are you an unashamed festival freak who loved nothing more than great music, cold brews, and delicious food?

Well, you’re in luck because the brand spanking new BCUBED (beats, brews, and burgers) festival is making its way to The Station this May.

The two-day festival places a huge emphasis on community, homegrown talent, and creating a welcoming environment for all walks of life.

And the inaugural BCUBED hit-out offers up an eclectic line-up of talent, both from Newcastle and further afield with Sydney-based hip-hop artist Kobie Dee and genre-bending, guitar-wielding, rapper, producer and singer Blessed headlining days one and two respectively.

You can also expect to see stellar sets from musical shapeshifter Jannah Beth, DJ/producer XNYWOLF, R&B artist GLO, DJ Uncle Fiesta, as well as live art by Sophie Miller.

If that wasn’t enough, Newcastle talent is also strongly represented here with the likes of reggae outfit Issa Mane & The Casio Traders, neo-soul four-piece, Luna Menta, up-and-coming all-girl quartet Butterknife, the folk, jazz, soul and Brazilian-inspired sounds of Pikou Panez, and the funky crustacean himself DJ Professor Crabb, rounding out the lineup.

Providing the heavenly feeds on both days are local outfit Boys & Grills delivering vegan and GF meals for all with an array of locally inspired bites. Also joining the line-up are Cattleyard Brewing Co and Earp Distillery, delivering the sweet liquid that helps oil those cogs with their locally brewed and distilled refreshments.

“Delicious food, vibrant bands, hypnotic beats and your favourite brews! BCUBED is a stress-free zone where you can relax with your homies, ice-cold brew in hand, as the sun sets and the music serenades you,” promoter Kai Mcgilvray said.

“We see BCUBED as something that runs through and for the community, rather than an event that is just in the community.”
