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.
The special guests for Greazefest Brisbane didn’t disappoint either, with pin-up legend Sabina Kelley posing for photos and mingling with crowds on both the Saturday and Sunday.

Pinstriping legend Von Hot Rod was back again for the third year running, sharing his tips and tricks in a series of workshops, and personalising cars and items with his trademark pinstriping.

The bands didn’t disappoint in 206 either, with headliners fro the USA, The Rhythm Shakers joined by the UK’s John Lewis, along with local Aussie favourites including The High Boys, The Flattrakkers and Pat Capocci.
Kustom Kulture fans south of the Queensland border need not worry, Greazefest will again travel to Melbourne this weekend (12-14 August) for the southern version of the event, following the success of last year’s event at Sandown Racecourse.
