ARIA award-winning band Lime Cordiale today toured the new Kingston Butter Factory (KBF) Cultural Precinct with City of Logan Mayor Darren Power ahead of their scheduled concert on Sunday, May 8.
Their show on KBF’s new outdoor stage is part of band founders Oli and Louis Leimbach’s annual travelling festival The Squeeze.
Along with Lime Cordiale, the line-up will include Thelma Plum, Client Liaison, The VANNS, Teenage Dads and Merci, Mercy.
Logan City Council is in the final stages of transforming the historic KBF into a world-class community precinct for arts, culture and entertainment.
Mayor Darren Power said he was thrilled to welcome the band to KBF and the city.
“It will be wonderful to have them take to the KBF stage and fire up this new facility,” he said.
“We look forward to attracting many artists of this calibre to KBF as this new venue starts its journey in the coming months.”
City Lifestyle Chair, Councillor Laurie Koranski, said the KBF would become a live music and cultural icon, attracting visitors from outside the city.
“KBF will transform the way our growing city entertains its community and we also look forward to welcoming visitors from Brisbane, Ipswich and the Gold Coast,” Cr Koranski said.
“We are delighted to announce Lime Cordiale will be playing at the new precinct and look forward to many more exciting announcements”.
Oli Leimbach from Lime Cordiale said it was ‘crazy to think how The Squeeze has grown from an indoor event to a major outdoor national festival for its third year.
“After the industry has been hit so hard it’s a great feeling to know that we’re pulling this off,” he said.
Tickets for the City of Logan concert are available now from Logan Arts.
