How do you ensure patron safety at Brisbane Festival?
The safety of our performers, audience members and staff is and always will be of paramount importance to us. Brisbane Festival ensures all social distancing requirements are adhered to as part of the organisation’s COVID-19 safety plan. Read more on our Stay COVID Safe page.
In 2020 we focused on finding new ways to bring Brisbane together, without encouraging crowd gathering. We look forward to delivering another safe and exciting program this September!
Why didn't Sunsuper Riverfire go ahead in 2020?
The one true consistency during COVID-19 has been unpredictability. Like many organisations, Brisbane Festival reimagined the 2020 Festival so it could proceed mindful of the need to adhere to social distancing restrictions. Certain elements of the 2020 program, including Sunsuper Riverfire, were unable to go ahead because they encourage crowd gathering.
Will Sunsuper Riverfire go ahead in 2021?
The Brisbane Festival team is committed to delivering an exciting program for Brisbane this September. We have not announced any 2021 events yet.
Keep an eye on our website and social media, or sign up to our newsletter to receive updates including event announcements.
Can I use my camera or recording device inside the theatre?
Photography and recording during in-theatre performances is generally not allowed, however please check the individual event information available at the venue on the day or evening of the performance.
What is happening with the giant finches after the festival?
Florentijn Hoffman’s artwork Messengers of Brisbane was created as a beacon of hope, and to bring joy to all those who witness the larger-than-life sculptures perched on iconic landmarks of Brisbane. The message is simple, but powerful: look up and smile. We are delighted that the Finches will have a life outside the Festival. Stay tuned for the details.
