Not that long ago, the narrow spaces around Fortitude Valley were just that — spaces, not vibrant laneways. These days, the area boasts not one, not two, but now four jam-packed alleys. Yes, that's a development that's worth celebrating.

In fact, it's a change worthy of a day-long festival, which is exactly what the returning Hidden Lanes Festival is all about. On Saturday, August 14 from 9am till late, Bakery Lane, Winn Lane, California Lane and Lucky Lane will turn into a flourishing — and free — party, complete with markets, beverages, art, food, fashion and more than 45 live musical acts.

Here, you'll eat, drink, dance, shop, chat, learn something, marvel at art and restock your wardrobe, all across one huge day and a quartet of busy spaces.

Naturally, the event will definitely involve the long list of businesses who call the four laneways home — and, tunes-wise, the lineup is headlined Raave Tapes, Connor Brooker and Buttercats, who'll hit up across multiple stages with plenty of company.
