Across the first half of every year, Brisbanites are invited to descend upon two patches of the city to celebrate unique parts of town. What's better than one street festival celebrating a Brissie neighbourhood? Two, clearly. First comes Stones Corner Festival, which is happening in early May in 2024 — and then, when June hits this year, Teneriffe Festival will unleash its own jam-packed day of fun.

Teneriffe Festival was born back in 2010 when the part of Brisbane that's in its moniker was officially named a suburb. A decade and a half later, it's still going strong, with around 50,000 people heading along annually. Accordingly, when 10am–9pm rolls around on Saturday, June 8, there'll be tunes, food, markets and more, all helping locals and visitors alike make the most of the bustling locale.

Mark your diaries ASAP. Then, get excited about The Cat Empire and Thundamentals leading the music lineup. Who'll they'll be joined by is yet to be revealed, but this fest is serious about its tunes. 2023's event featured The Potbelleez and Screamfeeder, for instance, while 2022's welcomed Ben Lee and Resin Dogs to Vernon Terrace.

While the rest of the lineup is yet to be unveiled, stints of dancing in the street are always joined by plenty of opportunities to eat and drink. The area's bars and restaurants get in on the action, food trucks serve up their own feasts and markets sling plenty of wares. Past years have seen a jazz-fuelled, wine-pouring riverside garden and a pop-up beer garden also on offer.
