Brisbane Festival

Home > Brisbane > Festivals | Community Events
This year's Brisbane Festival presents a selection of local, national and international artists and performers that embody the eclectic, multicultural city that we call home. The festival kicks off with Rivefire on 4 September and rumour has it that this is the last year the F-111's will do their dump and burn (of course, that's been the rumour since 2008.)

The festival will continue until 25 September at venues all throughout Brisbane. Some highlights include:

A retrospective of the works of prolific Canadian photographer Douglas Kirkland at the Gallery of Modern Art,

Are We There Yet?, a vaudeville inspired road show to be performed in suburban parks,

Former Australian Idol contestant Casey Donovan debuting new material at the Brisbane Powerhouse on 16 September,
Internationally renowned Cuban dance group Danza Contemporánea de Cuba showcasing their Afro-Carribean/classical European/modern American fusion style at the Queensland Performing Arts Complex on 14 and 18 September, and

The Queensland Symphony Orchestra, the Queensland Choir and the Brisbane Chorale performing The Last Night of the Proms at QPAC on 25 September.

Popular Brisbane Festival mainstay The Spiegletent, a Belgium inspired cabaret club, will set up at King George Square this year. Expect nightly performances from international musicians and weird and wonderful performance artists, plus lots of Belgium beer.

With 22 days of music, theatre, arts, dance and loads more, you'll find that co-ordinating your Brisbane Festival experiences is almost as hard as planning your Big Day Out!
