Stay COVID Safe

Being COVID Safe continues to be a shared responsibility. We want you to enjoy the Festival and stay safe. Please follow COVID Safe practices when attending Festival events.

Brisbane Festival will adhere to current COVID-19 restrictions as specified in the Queensland Chief Health Officer Public Health Directions.

#We recommend you

Stay home if you are unwell

Stay home if you are unwell or have a cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath. Be sure to take a rapid antigen test (RAT) if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

Practice good hygiene

Wash your hands often using soap and water or hand sanitiser. Hand sanitiser stations will be available at festival sites and venues.

Wear a mask when required

Consider carrying a mask, and wear a mask if you are required (for example by a healthcare provider or by Public Health Directions).

#Do not attend if...

you have a fever, cough, sore throat, headache, distorted sense of taste, shortness of breath, chills, vomiting or any cold/flu like symptoms.

  • If you become unwell during an event, locate event staff or first aid. In venues, approach a venue usher or staff member. In public spaces, locate a BF usher who will be wearing a BF t-shirt and lanyard.
  • Businesses have the right to refuse service and must insist that anyone displaying COVID-19 symptoms leaves the venue. This applies to events held in and around performing arts venues, as well as in public event spaces managed by Brisbane Festival.

Brisbane Festival expresses deep respect to and acknowledges the First People of this Country.
