The Valley Fiesta is an annual event on the Brisbane live music calender which showcases some of the best established and upcoming music talent that Queensland has to offer. While Fortitude Valley has a colourful history as a centre for illegal brothels, Chinatown and a one time retail centre, it has long been an incubator for the Brisbane music scene as a performance, and recording hub for many artists.
The Valley Fiesta, which has been running for over two decades, is hosted by the Brisbane City Council and QMUSIC. This year's Valley Fiesta Ambassador is Ian Haug, a former guitarist of Brisbane band Powderfinger.
