Jailbreak Festival

March 23, 2019 6:00 pm - 11:30 pm $42.50

In March 1991 a group of prisoners hijacked a garbage truck and drove it straight through the gates of Brisbane’s most notorious prison. To this day the act remains one of the most daring that Boggo Road Jail has ever seen – until now. Join the Jailbreak Festival, with an alt rock line up featuring The Jensens, Great Såge and more for six hours of live music, plus a licensed bar. Former prisoners Wayne and Itchy giving tours in the cell blocks in between sets, showing their cells telling what it was like at Boggo in the turbulent 1980s, Itchy being one of the hunger strikers.Tickets are limited as the jail is a heritage site, and are on sale now.
