Anywhere Festival returns in 2021 with a record 800 performances across South East Queensland - from Brisbane, Ipswich & Moreton Bay to Sunshine Coast & Noosa! Now in its 10th year, expect 17 jam-packed days of music, theatre, spoken word, cabaret, comedy, magic, walking tours and more to take temporary possession of our city in an intimate discovery of places and performances.
The full program is available for discovery and download and all tickets are on sale now at www.anywhere.is.
The Anywhere Festival is a festival like NO other, offering theatre, comedy, music, circus, cabaret, dance, poetry, walking tours, spoken word and even a little bit of magic in unlikely venues across the state. Think gyms, underground reservoirs, backyards, ferry stops, power stations, plant nurseries, golf clubs, rooftops, warehouses, cafes, trams, parks and heritage homes! PLUS in 2021, you can join in the fun online, in immersive virtual reality and real-time.
And all the types of strange nooks and crannies we've come to expect:
Other festival highlights include the real-life imagining of the classic board game of Cluedo or the Virtual Reality Big Brunch, where in a world first, three of the world's leading virtual reality proponents come together in the same room.
Or chill, head up into the rolling green hills of Mt Mee and laugh along with a collection of comical companions at the Tongue in Cheek Winery Tour, supping and sipping on a selection of fine cheeses and sample drops from the multi award-winning, Ocean View Estates as you go.
Also NEW in 2021 are 5 Anywhere Festival Hubs, each hosting multiple performances throughout the evening: choose from Arcana (Moorooka), Elements Collective (Fortitude Valley) Farrier Bar (Fortitude Valley), The Sideshow (West End) and The University of Queensland (St Lucia).
All details on the Hubs can be found in the program.
In the words of Qld's Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch, Anywhere Festival is "(a) homegrown true success story!" There's never been a better time to support Queensland's arts industry! Come and be part of the 10 year anniversary of Anywhere Festival 2021 and experience Queensland's creative and cultural spaces like never before!
