What's on at The Sound Society, Roma Street Parkland

Brisbane’s newest, free live music program will mellow your soul and leave you relaxed as you embrace chilled tunes in the lush green surrounds of Roma Street Parkland.

Held in Brisbane’s tropical inner-city oasis, The Sound Society embraces the true meaning of ‘easy like a Sunday morning’. Unwind to great tunes, good company and tasty treats – all in the natural surroundings of the Parkland.

Set amongst the towering Banyan trees, it is the ideal place to pull out a picnic rug and enjoy the beauty of live music. Bring your friends, or even come alone – whichever you prefer, you are sure to have a delightful morning that will soon become your regular Sunday outing.

Bring your own picnic snacks or grab a bite to eat from one of the food vendors, Juice Power, Zen Sisters and Cheese Lane – this will be your new monthly Sunday brunch spot!  The Sound Society will be held on the first Sunday of each month, starting in March 2018, and entry is free with live music from 9am to midday.
