Brisbane Festival

Brisbane Festival is one of Australia’s premier festivals and Brisbane's annual cultural event.

Brisbane Festival was developed by the Queensland Government and Brisbane City Council in 1996 as an initiative to foster the arts.


The Festival evolved from Brisbane’s Warana Festival, first held in 1961. Warana, meaning blue skies, was the beginning of Arts Festivals in Queensland. In these early festival days, a trip to the Queensland ballet cost ten shillings, the Grand Parade of floats down the city-streets was a major event and the festival was a celebration of Spring and the city’s cultural activities. The theme of the Warana Festival was "entertainment for the people, by the people". Over the years regular Warana features varied, but included a drama festival and eisteddfod, a writers' week, a George Street Colonial Fair, a Miss Warana Pageant and various religious, sporting and other outdoors activities.

Brisbane Festival was held as a biennial festival from 1996 to 2008 and an annual festival from 2009.   Tony Gould was the Artistic Director from 1996-2004 and Lyndon Terracini was the Artistic Director from 2006-2009.  In 2010, Noel Staunton was appointed as the Artistic Director.

In 2009, Brisbane Festival combined with the former Riverfestival to make it Brisbane’s annual festival.
