Let the Music Play 2022
The multi-venue fest will take over Fortitude Music Hall, The Zoo and Brightside Outdoors this winter, and turn Warner Street into a big disco street party
June 08, 2022
With its four-word title, Brisbane music festival Let the Music Play sends a clear message. After a couple of years of lockdowns and restrictions, all of which have impacted the city's live music scene, this event wants to let gigs go on. That was the case in 2021, too, when it first popped up and took over multiple Fortitude Valley venues. Being told to stay home may currently be a thing of the past, but the fest is back for another huge day in 2022 anyway — complete with an impressive lineup.
Taking place at the Fortitude Music Hall, The Zoo and outside at The Brightside again on Saturday, August 13, Let the Music Play celebrates everything we know and love about heading to a gig — including being able to hop onto the dance floor. So, you'll be able to do just that as you mosey between venues and check up a roster of talent that spans Northeast Party House, Thundamentals, Wafia, Jesswar, Mash'd N Kutcher, Bullhorn and more.
Running from 3–11.30pm, the fest is being called "the largest ticketed single-day festival in Fortitude Valley history", if you need an idea of just how big it'll be — and it'll pop up in a fourth venue as well. For the day, Warner Street will be shut down and turned into an outdoor precinct dubbed 'Unicorn Alley'. Brisbane's own Fluffy will be behind it, hosting a huge and characteristically opulent disco-themed street party.
