A world class arts festival in Brisbane

Brisbane Festival is back in 2019 from 6th to 28th September. It is a world class arts festival featuring some incredible acts of music, theatre, dance, comedy, opera, circus and more.

It is not just for the adults either, there is plenty for the kids to enjoy. Including the incredible Sunsuper Riverfire, which is an explosion of fireworks over our stunning city.
