Following the first announcement of Portland's Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Brisbane Festival continues to deliver on its promise of a world class 2018 music line up with its second artist announcement.

Hitting Brisbane Festival solo Canadian musician Dan Bejar (The New Pornographers, Swan Lake & Hello, Blue Roses) will be bringing his revered indie guitar project Destroyer to The Courier-Mail Spiegeltent Saturday September 23rd. Coming off the back of the release of his 12th studio album Ken', this is Destroyer's first time ever on Australian shores.

The Artist:

A celebrated Vancouver based anomaly of musicality and lyricism overturning genres such as glam MIDI, yacht rock, and even underground Spanish independent, Destroyer (Bejar) was proclaimed "Rock's Exiled King" by The Fader. His is a body of work that consistently flouts convention in favour of musical leaps of faith, statements of purpose cloaked in subterfuge, and the joyous refrain of an optimist's heart cloaked in cynicism.
