The good times begin with Brisbane Festival, a three-week celebration of the arts, theatre, music, dance and activities for young, old and everyone in between!

Next, gear up for BIGSOUND, the southern hemisphere's largest music industry gathering, which will transform Fortitude Valley into a hub of global musicians, industry professionals, brands, media and music lovers. By day, BIGSOUND offers invaluable opportunities to meet new collaborators and learn from industry leaders. By night, it showcases an incredible lineup of emerging stars that you won’t want to miss!

On Sat 7 Sep we present the hotly anticipated return of Sweet Relief!, an iconic day-tonight festival of music, art and performance. This year’s festival is here to satisfy party lovers with a nostalgia fuelled celebration of dance floor hits, led by the icons behind them.

Be treated to an Australian exclusive performance from Kelis, the pioneer and provocateur of Y2K R&B pop, famed for her unforgettable anthem “Milkshake”.

Joining her are acclaimed Aussie party starters The Presets, who will perform their electrifying live show, fresh from the Eurovision stage the ever-vibrant duo Electric Fields, bold electro-pop-icons Haiku Hands, genre-bending DJ dameeeela and pop mavens JUNO.

It's the most music you've ever seen in your life, and it's all happening this September in Brisbane
