After a challenging past 12 months for the live music industry, Winter Sessions is all about celebrating our city’s amazing live music scene. Taking place in Brissie’s most iconic venues, from the CBD to the suburbs, the Winter Sessions program features a stellar lineup of established and emerging artists, across a wide range of music genres.
The inaugural year of this festival includes more than 30 free and ticketed events, with over 100 artists performing in 16 venues. This music festival delivers 6 days and nights of programming, including performances with your favourite Brisbane music legends, as well as an epic street party, and culminates in the ultimate Ekka Holiday celebration. Brisbane Winter Sessions will kick off on Thursday 5th August and end on Wednesday 11th August 2021.
Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns across our nation, some Winter Sessions events have been postponed. The good news is that there are still plenty of amazing artists hitting the stage from Thursday 5th August to Wednesday 11th August for a range of free and ticketed gigs. If your favourite act is no longer listed above, you’ll be able to find the details of any postponed shows here when they become available.
