Brisbane’s Music Scene Is Taking Centre Stage At Fortitude Valley's New Music Hall

It’s the renovation we’ve all been waiting for.

A brand-new music hall is coming to Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, and it’s already solidifying itself as a must-experience destination. Planning to open its doors in July, the Fortitude Music Hall is Brisbane’s missing piece and answer to a visceral musical experience celebrating local and national artists. Founded with unbridled passion and excitement, industry veterans Powderfinger bassist John Collins and Splendour and Falls Festival co-founder Paul Piticcio guarantee quality talents and a groovin’ time.

After Brisbane’s iconic Festival Hall was demolished in 2003, Fortitude Music Hall was born from a dream to fill the void left behind. Inspired by some of the world’s most-loved live music venues, Fortitude Music Hall will still pay homage to the iconic venues of Brisbane’s past. From classic art deco theatres to larger clubs, venues such as Cloudland, Philadelphia Fillmore, and Festival Hall inspired the glossy, atmospheric and cutting-edge space. Think: a large ballroom and old theatre style space with the ultimate blend of rock and elegance.

To celebrate its opening, the must-see space will house bonafide Brisbane artists who will no doubt establish the haunt to become an iconic music destination from the get-go. Ball Park Music, DZ Deathrays and Tia Gostelow will handle the bulk of the entertainment duties as Powderfinger alumni Bernard Fanning and Ian Haug, Custard frontman Dave McCormack, The Grates frontwoman Patience Hodgson, Busby Marou, Velociraptor frontman Jeremy Neale, and singer-songwriters Thelma Plum and Sahara Beck will all jump on stage for special appearances through the night.
