Bright Lights, Fond Festivities
Our lovely Brisbane Festival is back and better than ever. Featuring plenty of events in the worlds of theatre, art, exhibitions and shows, there is something for everyone. Here's our list of the 20 events you can't miss in this BrisFest 2021.
It's Brisbane's time to shine, literally
It's the night where we look back at Brisbane and think to ourselves, damn, you really are easy on the eyes. We are here to guide you through how best to make your Riverfire 2021 a truly spectacular evening.
Scandinavian Film Festival
After being 2020 covid cancelled, the Scandinavian Film Festival is back at Palace Cinemas around Australia showcasing the best new cinema from Iceland, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Norway. Perhaps surprisingly, Scandi cinema does not just focus on Vikings and Thor/Loki but has a long history of making films that focus on the many intersections of society, families, politics, morality, history, religion, and ethics (don’t worry, they make comedies too).
Look for Magic in Every Moment
Another week, another chance to enjoy life. Lay out a picnic rug, kick up your heels for a dance, or pick up some popcorn on your way into the theatre. We all have a love for something so why not share it with those who love it too?
Bright Lights, Big Nights
Wing your eyeliner, and strap on a heel, for the nights just get better as light disappears. From food to festivals, may you rock out and roll round the sites on offer. The lights are bright and neon, bringing everything to life.
Shall We Dance?
May the party get started and you find yourself dancing all night long. But don’t stop during the day. Whether you find yourself dancing in that new fit you’re feeling, your tongue dances to the taste of some new flavours, or your feet find some new moves on the d-floor, there is a dance for everyone on every occasion. Get up and get grooving, it’s about time we got moving.
Holiday Mode Activated
That time of year has rolled around again for some of you lucky ones to kick up your feet and sip on a mimosa in the sun... or rock and roll at your favourite gigs, or shovel popcorn into your mouth while you enjoy your favourite film, or musicals. Whatever the weather, and whatever the season, Brisbane is delivering event on event. So let the magic into your life and fill your cup with love, laughter and memories.
Tis the Season to Sing, Dance and Laugh out Loud
Filling out your calendar with things to do this year won’t be hard to do as Brisbane ups the ante and delivers something for everyone every day. The hardest part will be choosing between bucket list items or try to make it to everything on offer! May 2021 continue to fill with festivities and may we march with drinks in hand, soaking up every dance, laugh, song and art.
Weekend on my Mind
As we settle into 2021, there’s plenty to look forward to. From new restaurants for you to feast in, to concerts and festivals to get your boogie on. Everything is an art, and it surrounds us, leaving us plenty to see and do. So put on a smile, slip into your dance shoes, pick up your friends and go get a cocktail… or two… because there’s plenty to be looking forward to and there's something for everyone.
February is full of festivities of fun for you and the family to get involved in. The Lunar New Year is preparing us all for a year of celebration, and what’s better to celebrate than everything? Whether you’re filling your stomach, drifting into an adventure or feeling the love, there’s plenty of spirit going around that you need to get involved in!
Bring on the bubbly!

Whether your tastes are decadent or more laid back, you can count(down) on us to bring you the best of what Brisbane and surrounds has to offer this New Years Eve. You'll be walkin' in a confetti wonderland in no time!

CAMP HILL ANTIQUE CENTRE & TART CAFÉ
The total refit of the former 1950’s Planet Cinema in Camp Hill was an epic undertaking a few years ago but the results are stunning. The old cinema was saved from the developers axe and Brisbane has Camp Hill Antique Centre & Tart Café, a swish Antique and Vintage mecca to drool over. It's all here, sixty-five dealers of everything from antique and estate jewelry to mid-century furniture classics and collectibles with pieces sourced from Europe, The States, South East Asia and from every nook and cranny of Australia.
Hey, you're looking sharp!
Happy New Year - wait, what do you mean it's nearly February? 2020 is in full swing, and Brisbane's weather isn't the only thing that is stinking hot. Some crazy fun gigs, music, food and festivals are heading our way. We're here to prickle your fancy, c'mon, have a look - you'd have to be a succa not to.
A shoey and fairybread combo is surely on the cards
G’day mate – we’ll spare you the Aussie slang. Like clockwork, it’s January and with it comes Australia Day. It’s a politically hot discussion, and there are plenty of reasons to change the date. We’re rooting for May 8 to be the new, less-insensitive date. But, no matter what side of the fence you’re on, we’ve got the run down some events and gigs happening.
