Taking over the city during September, Brisbane Festival does many things. It gives everyone an excuse to devour entertaining cultural delights — and it serves up a new hangout.
Actually, make that hangouts. Yes, Brisbane Festival's central hub offers multiple spaces in one. Revamping South Bank's Cultural Forecourt, Treasury Brisbane Arcadia boasts everything from pop-up food stalls to the spiegeltent to everything in between.
Indeed, as well as offering a place to go when you need a wine, craft beer or food between shows, there's two places you'll want to check out. Stop by Divine for a dose of drag entertainment over a frosé, plus late-night DJs — or head to The Box for outdoor dancing and pop-up parties.
Other events in Arcadia's vicinity include the House of Mirrors, Seance and a nightly light show, plus the feast of performances at The Courier-Mail Spiegeltent. That's where you'll catch many of the fest's headliners, including LIFE - THE SHOW, Tkay Maidza, Jen Cloher and the California Crooners Club.
