The Brisbane Trail

2024 Dates Announced Soon


There's never a better time to travel to Brisbane than September! With Sweet Relief!, Brisbane Festival and BIGSOUND all gearing up to set the tone of an unforgettable music adventure.

We're so proud of our 2023 Brisbane Trail! If you're from Brissy, you know that September is always a month jam packed with fantastic weather, music and arts events and of course, fireworks. And 2023 was no exception!

The Brisbane Trail kicked off with Brisbane Festival's iconic Riverfire by Australian Retirement Trust with incredible fireworks and a dazzling drone show lighting up the sky at South Bank. For 3 weeks, Brisbane Festival made the river and city landmarks the stage for some out of this world shows!

BIGSOUND followed strong and brought Fortitude Valley to life with a global gathering of musicians, industry, brands, media and music lovers. By day, BIGSOUND presented invaluable opportunities to meet new collaborators and learn from the best in the biz. And by night, showcased a massive line up of up and coming stars not to be missed!

Future Art launched next to shake up the art scene with an explosive fusion of digital art and live music. Featuring the world's brightest digital artists, live music from top DJs, and a multi-sensory and ultra-immersive experience changes how contemporary art is experienced for a night like no other.

By the time the 16th rolled around, we were itching for our turn and the launch of the first of our flagship Brisbane Trail event, Sweet Relief! Headlined by Groove Armada and The Avalanches, Sweet Relief! brought a musical haven to Northshore Brisbane. We hosted Australia's Biggest Dress Up Competition, hosted by Osher Gunsberg, Poof Doof Pride Patrol's first ever event in QLD, a fully immersive, all inclusive, tactile sensory Silent Disco experience & loads more.

What an amazing year for Brisbane's music scene. We can't way to see what's in store for 2024!
