QMF Unveils Huge
20th Anniversary Program

Queensland Music Festival has launched its massive 2019 program. The state-wide program for the festival's 20th anniversary will run 5 July through to 28 July and bring "the gift of music to all corners of the state". 

The program features a number of events all across Queensland. Immersion will see artists like Clea, Asha Jefferies, Sahara Beck, Ben Ely, Emily Wurramara and more performing intimate, secret gigs in hotel rooms around Brisbane. Beloved music legend Archie Roach will perform at The Tivoli with the Tinalley String Quartet and acclaimed actress Sigrid Thornton will be joined by her mum, activist Merle Thornton for an in-conversation with live music from Pink Matter.

Fresh from Eurovision, Kate Miller-Heidke will join Erkki Veltheim and Paul Grabowsky in a celebration of one of Queensland’s true musical masterminds, John Rodgers. The Help Is On Its Way events will see Busby Marou join two-time ARIA Hall of Fame inductee Glenn Shorrock, The McClymonts and Travis Collins plus thousands of people from across Queensland and Australia, singing together and raise their voices in support of positive men’s mental health.

“Queensland Music Festival has always reflected the Queensland of yesterday, today and tomorrow and this year’s event is a true representation of that. It shines a light on things Queenslanders hold dear, hidden stories of our state and gives opportunity for the public to participate. Anyone with a voice can sing and using music to engage, educate and inspire is what Queensland Music Festival is about.”

Katie Noonan
Artistic Director, Queensland Music Festival

The QMF has a 20-year history of delivering live music experiences throughout Queensland, moved by music’s power to foster a sense of community, to encourage individuals to come together and participate in the creation and enjoyment of music. The festival celebrates how music can create connections between people in a way that transcends their predispositions and understandings of one another, and can foster a powerful dialogue for important issues.

This festival, there are plenty of ways for members of the public to get involved and be a part of the state-wide musical community. You can add your voice to the choir as part of Help Is On Its Way. Track down and tinkle the ivories on 20 pianos, painted brilliantly by local artists and community groups and hidden around Brisbane for Play Me, I'm Yours. Indigenous community members and elders can tell their stories and share their memories as part of Mission Songs.
