Free Live Music Brisbane Festival
The Brisbane Festival has well and truly kicked off, and this year Santos GLNG is bringing an exciting new event to the programme.
The Twilight Music Series will take place at the River Quay Green in South Bank every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, between 5 and 7pm during the festival period, and will feature a number of relaxed evenings of free live music, showcasing an array of incredible up and coming Australian artists.
So now that spring is finally here and the weather is warming up, why not head down to the river, bring a picnic rug, a bite to eat and some drinks, and enjoy a chilled out evening of stellar music, good company and great sunset views over the city.
Picnic rugs will also be on sale at the event for $10, and the money raised will be donated to CareFlight in order to help with their incredible life-saving aeromedical evacuation & retrieval work that they so impressively undertake.
Check out the list of artists performing in the programme detailed below!
