It's the hottest lineup of the season
With the start of spring upon us, it's time to look forward to bigger and better things. Luckily, that has been made super easy with a line-up of festivals to look forward (we've missed this). Your old favourites are back and they are bringing some new friends that you'll love just as much. Summer and spring present to you: the best festival lineup you've seen since BC (before covid 💁♀️).
The Real Qweens Of The City
While we wait for Drag Race to bless us with its presence in Australia, local Drag Queens and artists are working hard to provide us with a good time out and getting us to scream “YASSSSS QWEEN!” at the local bars like The Beat, The Wickham, The Stand and many others. Although with this covid-19 drama we are still working towards supporting small businesses and local artists. So why not give some recognition to the drag queens that constantly entertain us with their charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and, talent.

There are so many live gigs, in literally all the genres at the moment, that we are sure your music mecca is awaiting. Here are our suggestions to keep you busy for the next few weeks!

Laser shows and artistic wonders await this September
Boldly going where no festival has gone before, Brisfest is back with its 2020 Boldly Brisbane program. This year’s festival will look a little different, but the COVID safe plan means we still get to enjoy Brisbane’s most anticipated event of the year. Expect concerts in your street, laser light shows, and some pretty damn amazing art installations.
The Festival will run from September 4-26 and reach 190 suburbs with 91 events and 490 performances across music, art, theatre, and dance. Extra good news, 73 of these events are free!
We’ve put together the low down on this year’s Brisbane Festival, so read on to find out what’s happening this year.
