Greazefest Brisbane 2016

 Greazfest Brisbane 2016 promised a few changes, like a new venue south of Brisbane, but the popular kustom kulture festival produced the same great bands, markets and big names in kustom kulture scene.

This year was the festival’s first at the Cleveland Showground, with the new venue south of Brisbane offering more room for markets, cars, an expanded stage area with lots of seating, and a bigger bar area.
