Brisbane Festival 2016

Three big weeks of international and local arts are on their way in September with tickets now on sale for Brisbane Festival 2016 (3 - 24 September). This year the festival puts the public centre stage with participatory shows and events that engage the audience.

From brass bands to dance legends, international theatre and music from across the globe, Brisbane Festival offers world premieres and brand new work, to familiar stories told in intriguing new ways. 

Queensland arts organisations will be front and centre with productions from La Boite, Opera Queensland, Circa, Access Arts, Metro Arts and Dancenorth. In a ground-breaking production exclusive to Brisbane Festival, Grammy-Award winning artist Pharrell Williams teams up with choreographer Jonah Bakoar and scenic designer Daniel Arsham for the spectacular show, Rules of a Game.
