Queensland Music Festival (QMF) is a biennial state-wide celebration of music, a major cultural and artistic success story with a national and international reputation, and an unparalleled geographic reach.
Every second year, over 17 days in July, the best of local, national and international talent perform every conceivable style of music to Queenslanders from all walks of life, in Brisbane, and in regional and remote centres from Thursday Island to the Gold Coast.
The majority of events are free, and many feature large-scale collaborations with communities. No music is left unloved in a program that moves and inspires with new and surprising musical exchanges from around the state, the country and the globe.
Working with communities throughout the state, QMF makes the joy of music accessible to all, creates unique experiences that connect people with place and community, and celebrates the richness and diversity of Queensland.
The festival ignites artistic potential. In collaboration with councils and the communities, QMF inspires participation in music-making and performances that reflect local culture and tell local stories.
