Four festive weekends not to be missed.
Celebrate iconic Brisbane landmarks from the river to rooftops, theatres to parks.
Stunning installations, new commissioned works, contemporary music and high drama should all be on the wish list for visitors to Brisbane this September.
#02 Reach for the Stars
Turn your gaze to the stars as we celebrate the celestial. One of the hits of last year’s festival, Brisbane’s Art Boat will take to the river again, bedecked with a stunning installation by internationally renowned, Brisbane-born artist, Lindy Lee. And over at West Village, international artist Luke Jerram’s Planet Series kicks off with Museum of the Moon — a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight, and surround sound.
#03 Celebrating our Storytellers
Festivals celebrate and include a multitude of voices and perspectives. And the stories of artists are at the heart of connecting, engaging and uplifting audiences. From epics to achingly beautiful, from comedy to starkly haunting, there’s a story for everyone.
#04 Raise the Roof
Brisbane Festival’s closing weekend Raises the Roof. In a celebration of Brisbane’s stunning lifestyle, six rooftops will be taken over by six Brisbane creatives who will create their own utopia for one night only at Raise the Roof. And to close out the celebrations, Riverstage comes alive with Queen’s Wharf Disco Wonderland. There are no rules here, just disco. Welcome to the party.
