Brisbane's thriving music scene is taking over an unexpected venue, and it's turning the volume up loud. For almost eight months between Friday, August 30 and Sunday, April 19, the Museum of Brisbane will play host to High Rotation. The in-depth exhibition showcases the city's songs, singers, stars and all-round sonic wonders from the past 30 years; celebrates the wide range of folks helping make Brissie's music magic happen; and explores the local industry's national and international impact.

Across a range of film clips and photos, instruments and souvenirs, plus other bits and pieces, more than 80 artists will be in the spotlight. Whether you like pop, rock or indie, adore today's up-and-comers or obsess over big names that have shaped the last three decades, you'll find someone to tap your toes to. That includes Regurgitator, Custard, Powderfinger, Savage Garden, Kev Carmody, The Veronicas, Sheppard, George, Kate Miller-Heidke and Keith Urban, as well as The Grates, Violent Soho, WAAX and Thelma Plum. The lineup goes on, and it'd make quite a playlist — or festival bill.

Fancy creating your own all-Brisbane playlist while you're perusing the CBD site's walls? Playing along with some of the city's standout hits? Hearing the tales behind the tunes from folks who've spent their lives reporting on them? Listening to those who've been living the rock 'n' roll life, such as music labels, managers, artists, producers and venue managers, all recount their experiences? They're all on the program too, as are other talks, panels and workshops.

Tickets cost $12, with MoB open daily from 10am — closing at 5pm every day except on Fridays, when you can revel in Brissie music history until 7pm.
