Brisbane Festival connects artists and audiences in ways that lift the spirit, disrupt the conventional and open our city to the world. Each September, it explodes across the city with a thrilling program of theatre, music, dance, circus, opera and major public events attracting an audience of around one million people every year. Brisbane Festival has only been annual since 2009, but in that time it’s been embraced by the city and admired by the world.
