The 2015 Valley Fiesta is just five weeks away and event organisers have released details of the first batch of artists confirmed for the annual free street party. The event, which will take place in Fortitude Valley from October 23 to 25, will feature live music, food, street art, markets and much more. Once again, the festival will feature an eclectic mix of Australian musical talent performing at multiple stages.
Artists already announced include Young Franco, Asta, Art vs Science and Alpine, along with local bands such as The Jensens, The Cairos and Baskervillain, with further announcements still to come to fill the remaining slots on the schedule. The festivities will kick off on Friday night with sets from various Live and Local competition winners in the Brunswick Street Mall.
Saturday will see three stages in action with Alpine headlining the Brunswick East Stage from 9:00pm. Additional stages in the Brunswick and Chinatown malls will provide plenty of variety for attendees throughout the night.
On Sunday, the Brunswick Street Mall Stage will host the Queensland Music Awards Showcase featuring Leanne Tennant, Electrik Lemonade, Michelle Xen, Waax and Halfway. Over at the Chinatown Mall Stage on Sunday, Fortitude Valley’s LBTGI community will present the Valley Pride program comprising a fun afternoon of entertainment, stage shows and music.
