Brisbane's G20 Entertainment & Street Closures


With the international spotlight shining on Queensland for the G20, Brisbane is set to welcome the world's leaders with a celebration of music, art, dance and entertainment culture.

Embracing and enjoying the talent and diversity of Brisbane's entertainment scene, 'Cultural Celebrations' is a three week programme of free events hosted by the Queensland Government. Showcasing our beautiful state and enviable lifestyle, there will be something to suit everyone's tastes.

'Colour Me Brisbane' will light up Brisbane's most iconic buildings and signature landmarks while you can test your creative flair at one of the 'Paint You City' touchscreen kiosks. The 24 day line-up will see parades, circas, a colourful welcome of spring, art exhibits, get togethers, Halloween parties, dances and of course music.


Arts Minister Ian Walker says that hundreds of Queensland’s most talented musicians will take to stages across the city and suburbs of Brisbane to perform solo, collaborative and one-off shows as part of the G20 Cultural Celebrations.

“There will be 4,000 delegates and about 3,000 media who will visit Brisbane during the G20, making it a once in a generation opportunity for Queensland ... In all, there will be about 14,500 Brisbane hotels rooms booked for this event, which is great news for our tourism industry.

“The economic boost to Brisbane alone will be $100 million, so the flow-on effects to Queensland generally will be enormous ... The G20 is really something to celebrate and this free music program allows us to do just that.

“It is designed to appeal to a range of audiences and the artists throughout this program represent Brisbane to the world as the tremendous music city that we all know it to be.”
