What Is Brisbane Festival?

Brisbane, the capital city of the state of Queensland in Australia holds a biennial event supporting the arts, known today as the Brisbane Festival.
The Queensland Government and Brisbane City Council created the festival in 1996 as an initiative to foster a deeper appreciation for the arts, evolving from the city’s Warana Festival first held in 1961. From 1996 to 2008, the Brisbane Festival worked under had two artistic directors: jazz musician Tony Gould and operatic baritone Lyndon Terracini. Under their successive watches, the festival turned into one of the most highly respected and acclaimed international arts festivals in the world. In 2009, the Brisbane Festival merged with Riverfestival, a week-long festival held in September each year at South Bank Parklands and surrounding areas to celebrate the Brisbane River.
Since then, Riverfire has usually opened the Brisbane Festival. It includes a 30-minute display of fireworks from the city’s three major bridges, boats, and buildings. Sunsuper is another main event. The Santos City of Lights is also a must-see during the festivities. True to its thrust of promoting the arts, the Brisbane Festival organizers also treat attendees to a whole collection of art exhibits, dance and theater performances, and live and canned music of varying genres.
