Dare to be Festive
As the end of 2020 comes into sight, we finally have more events to look forward to.

Getting intimate with your faves!
Hands up for who prefers live music over the studio versions? *Hands Up* we are! Though we are just a screen away from our favourite artists, nothing beats that intimacy of an acoustic session with just a few people in the room! Sure, we have streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music but watching the real magic happen in front of our eyes is just something else! Since festivals and concerts are the last things that will be happening this year, binging out on these amazing channels are sure to give you some real time EARgasms!!

Music makes the world go round.
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!
Locally grown; internationally loved
Some serious talent has come out of this wonderful city of Brisbane. No matter what era of music you grew up with, I can guarantee you know at least three. Whether you knew that they were from Brisbane is another ball game. Here are 20 now nationally (and internationally!) recognised bands that we love to claim as our own.
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.
