Feelin’ lucky? Well, you’d be feeling right, because the best thing since sliced potato is coming to Brisbane, and it is going to absolutely shamrock your world - and we're the lads with the code to knock $10 off your ticket!

Brace your festival boots, because Brisbane’s Paddyfest is rolling up in a very large wagon for its second year, with a few more tricks up its bright green sleeve.

Set to be the biggest St Patrick’s Day party in town (or the Oktoberfest of all things Irish, if you would) Paddyfest is bringing an authentic Irish celebration to our very own doorstep, with plenty of room to move if you can’t stand hanging in over-crowded pubs *raises hand anxiously*.   

Come Saturday, March 16, you’ll be able to get a very real taste of Ireland, especially if you purchase tickets to the Emerald Isle VIP party, letting you paint the town green with reserved seating, the best views of the stage, and a three-hour food and beverage package (get ‘em here). By the luck of the Irish, you’ll still be set for a stupendous time if you hit up general admission tix, especially with $10 off with the code ‘GG’!

All Paddyfest goers can expect a day of good beer and great craic, with everything from huge headline act Kingswood (festival regulars at Splendour In The Grass, Falls Festival and Groovin’ The Moo), to a stellar lineup of Irish rock, folk and pipe bands and traditional dancers.

The grass will be greener on the festival grounds with tonnes of options featuring authentic Irish eats from Diddly Dee Food Truck, classic Aussie snacks, and stacks on stacks of pop-up bars where you can get around everything from a Guinness (obviously) to a cheeky cocktail. You’ll find us Dublin up with both.

The Food & Wine Lane makes up just one of four new exciting zones to explore this year, with others including Paddyfest Central, O’Donoghue’s Ale House and Little Leprechauns Kids Zone, making the event fun for all the clan! Hitting all zones will be a new laser light spectacular show for kids and the young at heart, followed by a Leprechaun DJ set to keep the party going.

What it all comes down to is that for a pitcher perfect day, you’ve gotta hit up Paddyfest. Follow the digital rainbow to the pot of golden tickets here.
