Strap on your dancing shoes and gather your party pals because The Valley Fiesta is back baby! From Thursday 19 – Sunday 22 November 2020 the Fortitude Valley precinct is set to come alive with an absolutely bangin’ four-day line-up of live gigs across 14 different venues. Did someone say four-day fiesta? Sign us up!
For more than two decades, Valley Fiesta has been Brisbane’s weekend-long extended party, showcasing the established and emerging talent of Fortitude Valley’s live music scene in new and heritage venues. At this year’s Valley Fiesta, presented by Brisbane City Council and QMusic, music fans are invited to party-on-down to a jam-packed program of homegrown acts.
The first line-up release features an inspired mix of artists that includes local luminaries from legendary singer Robert Forster and ‘90s alt-rockers Screamfeeder to new talent including dance-punksters DZ Deathrays performing a special DJ set and singer-songwriter Jaguar Jonze. Rounding out the all-Queensland line-up so far are indie rockers The Cairos, indie-folk singer-songwriter Greta Stanley, punk rockers Total Pace, local DJ Dameeeela, eclectic dance act First Beige, our first lady of song Kate MillerHeidke, plus new Brisbane transplants, rock ingenues Tired Lion.
These stellar acts will be showcased on stage at top live music venues in and around Fortitude Valley, including Black Bear Lodge, The Brightside and The Brightside – Outdoors, O’Skulligans, The Tivoli and The Triffid. There is a genre and venue for every type of live music lover!
With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing a shutdown of Brisbane’s beloved Fortitude Valley Live Entertainment Precinct earlier this year, there’s never been a better time to welcome people back to clubs and venues. Brisbane City Council Community, Arts and Night-time Economy Chair Councillor Vicki Howard said Valley Fiesta provided a fantastic platform for the city’s emerging musical and creative talent in the world-renowned Fortitude Valley Live Entertainment Precinct.
