Valley Fiesta back at its best with live music and great entertainment on offer

Join the street party and soak up the atmosphere as Valley Fiesta returns from November 3 to 4 this year to celebrate music, culture and community.

Brisbane’s biggest annual party returns to the streets of the Valley with outdoor stages featuring a huge line-up of acts including headliners Mallrat, Mildlife and Hatchie supported by the best local acts curated by the team at Brisbane’s iconic Tivoli Theatre. The program also features a packed schedule of events and parties that will electrify the Valley precinct.

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner described Valley Fiesta as the cornerstone of Brisbane’s music and arts scene since it began in 1997.

“This free event continues to captivate attendees with a diverse line-up of musicians and artists spanning various genres and styles,” Cr Schrinner said.

“Calling all foodies as the festival kicks off with the much-loved family-friendly King Street Food Fiesta on Friday 3 November featuring some of Brisbane’s favourite emerging artists on the outdoor stage, roving entertainment and a fantastic array of pop-up dining options from King Street restaurants.  

“Saturday sees Valley Fiesta back at its best with Fortitude Valley coming alive from 3:30pm with a massive line up of acts over two outdoor stages in Brunswick Street playing the best live music through to the evening.  

“Other fiesta experiences include Hidden Lanes Bar Trail, with local bars offering special deals and DJs playing in Winn Lane and Bakery Lane. The After Parties will be keeping the party going with local venues opening their doors late into the night.

“Beyond the music, Valley Fiesta immerses attendees in a vibrant cultural experience that embraces the city’s creative spirit and fosters a sense of community. It is a unique opportunity to explore the rich tapestry of Brisbane’s music and arts scene, discovering new talent and embracing the city’s cultural diversity.

QMusic CEO, Kris Stewart, said Valley Fiesta is an iconic event offering attendees an exhilarating experience showcasing the best the city has to offer.

“We’re so excited to be bringing the best version of Valley Fiesta back, with awesome live music and cultural experiences free on the streets. There’s nothing like a street party to celebrate our vibrant music scene, and Valley Fiesta is the best free street party in Brisbane!”

“Valley Fiesta is more than just a festival; it is a testament to the enduring power of music, culture, and community. It showcases the vibrant heartbeat of Fortitude Valley, inviting everyone to join in the celebration and create lasting memories.”
