Valley Fiesta Brisbane
In the entertainment precinct of Fortitude Valley life seems to be one non-stop party that couldn’t get any better.
Once a year though they step things up a notch for the Valley Fiesta, a 3 day street festival that’s a vibrant, eclectic collection of live music, DJs, hip-hop and even disco acts.
There’s also market stalls, food and drink, with many local cafes, restaurants, pubs, and clubs participating with partner events.
Spread over 3 outdoor stages and several surrounding venues, the festival, presented by the Brisbane City Council, is an all ages event attracting well over 100,000 party goers every year.
Valley Fiesta – August 2015
This year’s event is still in the organisation stage but is rumoured to be looking even bigger than last year.
Working in partnership with over 40 local venues, Brisbane’s biggest street party will draw party going masses to see a long list of headliner entertainment and a smorgasbord of live bands, DJs and musicians.
So keep your ear to the ground for more information about the 2015 line-up.
Date of next event: August, 2015
Location: Brunswick Street Mall & participating Valley clubs
Cost: Free shows on public stages, some club performances have door charge
There is plenty of accommodation in and around Fortitude Valley so you can stay right in the middle of the action for the whole fiesta. Brisbane accommodation include hotels, holiday apartments, motor inns and backpacker hostels in convenient walking distance from all the main events.
The festival draws large crowds to the Valley so parking right near the performances may be a problem. There are a number of secure parking facilities in the area but it’s advised to catch public transport. The Fortitude Valley Train Station is right in the middle of the Valley and there are plenty of other local transport options.
Most street events are free but some shows in participating venues will have a door charge. You should be able to pay on arrival but check the Valley Fiesta website for ticket and pricing information.
