About The Trails
It's the ultimate music festival meets road trip!
Grab your friends and pack the van. Queensland Music Trails is the latest player on the Australian festival scene, bringing you world-class music set in the most beautiful places in the country. From stunning coastal mountains and sun-drenched beaches to the lush rainforests of the far north or the endless horizons and open plains of the west - we will give you unique ways to explore Queensland one incredible music event after the other.
Feel the soft grass of hinterland hills while warm strains of folk, blues and roots fill the air. Dance on tropical sands while a haze of surf-psych and reggae paints the sky. Witness epic stories under desert stars as cellos and dancers play across ancient rocks and riverbeds. Or squeeze your bestie’s hand by the rooftop bar and cheers the setting sun as the DJ drops the beat.
All this and more awaits you on the Queensland Music Trails.
We kicked things off in 2021 with The Outback Music Trail – a 1,300km pilgrimage from Jimbour to Birdsville with pop, rock, opera and puppetry along the way. In 2022, we swapped the red desert for rolling green fields and put on The Long Sunset - an unforgettable one-day festival in the Scenic Rim that brought rapture to 5,000 joyous punters as Angus and Julia Stone, Ball Park Music and many more strew musical gold through the valley floor.

QMF is a strategic music agency that helps communities unlock the power of music to create a brighter future.
The QMF team is an expert collective, brought together by the shared belief that music’s potential value to our society is yet to be fully realised.
The programs we facilitate are typically partnerships between leading artists and arts organisations, local communities, government, corporate and philanthropic partners.
We like to think that we tie it all together.
QMF is an initiative of the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
