If we’re going to host the G20, we’re going to host the G20 right. South Bank will host a spectacular Opening Night to mark the official start of G20 Cultural Celebrations.

The event will begin with a Welcome To Country, followed by non-stop entertainment. Funk band Electrik Lemonade will kickstart the festivities, before the spectacular Colour Me Brisbane lights are turned on, illuminating the city with an interactive lighting and laser display.

As the spectacular lighting show transforms Brisbane’s city skyline, you’ll relax and enjoy as Robert Forster, William Barton, ACPA singers and top Latin band Chukale take centre stage to showcase the impressive performances to come from the G20 Cultural Celebrations.

This free event, open to families and children of all ages, will be held at the South Bank Piazza on Friday 24 October from 5:30pm to 7pm. For more info, visit the event guide.
