Brisbane Festival’s Epic 2018 Line Up

This September catch Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Violent Soho, Meg Mac, San Cisco, Tkay Maidza plus heaps more!

The 2018 Brisbane Festival line up just got a whole lot bigger! From the 8 – 29 September the river city will come to life with three weeks of music, dance and circus attracting millions of people from across Australia. And to top off this year’s event, organisers have delivered a stellar line up including two epic parties with some of Australia’s best and brightest musicians.

Ball Park Music and San Cisco will open up the annual event with one HUGE show at The Riverstage, supported by Ruby Fields and Tia Gostelow.

For the rest of the 3 week festival, venues across the city will play host to local and international artists, including Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Gareth Liddard Destroyer, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Yothu Yindi and The Treaty Project, Touch Sensitive, Tkay Maidza, Polish Club, Eskimo Joe, and more. Yep this is the real deal and we’re just as excited as you are!

And here’s the best part…

For the first time ever Brisbane Festival is holding one epic closing party at Riverstage which will be on the same night as the spectacular Riverfire display. Aussie greats Violent Soho will provide the perfect soundtrack as the night sky lights up and becomes a firework extravaganza, supported by rising superstars Meg Mac, Methyl Ethel and WAAX. It’s going to be pretty damn epic.
