Brisbane Live Music Venues

If you are looking for live music during your stay in Brisbane there are plenty of venues to choose from. Depending on your music genre there is plenty of variety from rock to jazz. Brisbane is not only a destination for many touring artists, but is also home to a fantastic variety of local bands and musicians that play on a regular basis.


On weekends the streets of Brisbane City come alive with free live music. City Sounds is Australia's largest and longest running live music program that presents local and touring artists in Queen Street Mall, Post Office Square, South Bank and more.

International and larger national acts touring often play at Riverstage in Brisbane's Botanic Gardens or at The Tivoli or The Zoo in The Valley and Max Watt's in West End plus Brisbane's newest live music venue, The Triffid in Newstead.

Also worth checking out is the Black Bear Lodge, X&Y, Alhambra Lounge and Ric's – all hosting nights dedicated to featuring mostly local and occasionally interstate bands on a regular basis.

For something a little different, Lefty's Old Time Music Hall in Caxton Street, brings a slice of country music and Americana to Brisbane's inner city and Brooklyn Standard specialising in jazz, funk and blues. Then there is Sonny's House of Blues in Rowes Arcade.

Of course there is the Glen Hotel's own brand of live music with Live Music Wednesdays, Friday Knockoffs and Sounds on Sunday.
