BrisFest brings free concerts to the suburbs

BrisFest brings free concerts to the suburbs

This September, BrisFest is bringing free concerts to our inner-western suburbs with a stacked lineup of homegrown talent.

‘Street Serenades’ will showcase live music and performances at pop-up venues throughout Toowong, Auchenflower, Milton, Taringa, St Lucia, Indooroopilly and Fig Tree Pocket.

The impressive lineup features favourites like Kate Miller-Heidke, Beddy Rays and Evangie, plus many more fantastic artists performing indie pop, acoustic, jazz, electronic and classical music.

Brisbane’s music scene has produced some exceptional talent over the years, but unfortunately the pandemic has taken its toll on the arts industry.

Street Serenades is a great opportunity for us to support local performers, reignite our love of music and be inspired by incredible new artists!

Here’s who you can see in Brisbane’s inner-western suburbs.
