Looking for a day of free live music, art exhibitions, fashion parades, markets, master classes and an opportunity to explore some of Fortitude Valley’s best kept secrets? If so, the Hidden Lanes Festival in Fortitude Valley should be right up your alley (pun intended). Running tomorrow (Saturday, October 13) from 10.00am, the festival includes performances from the likes of The Delta Riggs, Jeremy Neale, Ben Ely, Hannah Rosa, Asha Jefferies and  another 30+ artists across several outdoor stages and established music venues such as Laruche, The Bowery and The Zoo.

Coinciding with the opening of California Lane, the latest effort from developer Arthur Apostolos to “activate the disused spaces in the heart of Fortitude Valley” and further enhance The Valley as Brisbane’s premier locale for dining, entertainment and creativity, the Hidden Lanes Festival is a celebration of everything that makes this part of Brisbane so unique.

In addition to California Lane, festival activities will take place in Winn Lane, Bakery Lane and Lucky Lane and, with more than 80 tenants spread across these spaces, there will be plenty of diversity on offer for festival-goers.  The celebrations commence at 10.00am and continues late into the evening, with an official after-party at The Zoo to wrap things up.
