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 and 2021 we focused on finding ways to bring Brisbane together safely. We look forward to delivering another safe and exciting program in September 2022!

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.
