RIDE - Backbone Youth Arts

Hop into a car and drive around Fortitude Valley in this immersive two-night-only performance.

When you're heading out to see a show, you might hop in your own car, wait to get picked up by a mate or call an Uber. Whichever transport option you choose, it's usually just a means to an end. That's not the case with RIDE by Backbone Youth Arts. You'll still have to make your way into Fortitude Valley for this Valley Fiesta performance, but once you're there, you'll be jumping back into a vehicle and driving around town.

An hour-long show that's taking place at 6.30pm, 7.45pm and 8.45 pm on Friday, August 31 and Saturday, September 1, RIDE really is exactly what it sounds like — you'll ride around as part of the production, which involves searching for a big party. It all starts with a text message telling you to meet the driver in a secret location. Then, you'll get picked up, listen to music, talk, dance, sing and see where the show takes you. And, obviously, we mean the last part literally.

Tickets cost $20 for what sounds like a performance like no other, and groups of four can book if you'd like to experience the fun with your pals. Be warned: Backbone advises that there's no guarantees that you'll ride with the same group for the whole event, so that should give you an inkling of the kind of shenanigans that are in store.
