A storm brought a premature end to the Valley Fiesta last night, curtailing proceedings before headline act Architecture in Helsinki could take to the main stage. A big crowd was on hand in readiness for the performance when heavy rain swept across Fortitude Valley and left organisers with little choice but to abandon the show. Prior to the rain, the likes of Art of Sleeping, Jeremy Neale and Gold Fields had performed, with photos from the event available here.

The festivities continue today from 2:00pm to 7:00pm with events on the Valley and Chinatown mall stages. The Queensland Music Award Winners Showcase on the Valley Mall Stage will feature Cub Sport, who will have a plaque laid on the Valley Mall walk of fame in their honour. The Chinatown Mall will celebrate Queensland’s LGBTI community with performances from the likes of Paulini and Dan Murphy.

All the public stages of Valley Fiesta are FREE and ALL AGES. For more information about Valley Fiesta, including venue maps and the full line-up of performers, head to the event website or visit them on Facebook.
