Pack a picnic or a romantic dinner for two and head down to South Bank this Saturday for City Sounds, with free live music for everyone to enjoy.

If you’ve never heard of it, City Sounds is Australia’s largest free live music program and it’s been running in Brisbane for the past 15 years. In that time, the program has grown from 50 shows and 150 performances to more than 750 shows and 2,200 performances a year.

Held at South Bank Parklands every Saturday from 3pm to 8pm, the program features an array of performances by emerging local talent and touring artists.

From alternative and folk, to jazz and electro, rock and everything in between, City Sounds has something to suit everybody’s music tastes.

Just some of the artists performing this year include Josh Lovegrove, Alphabet Street, Brad Butcher and Clea.

City Sounds’ performance locations change regularly and include some of South Bank Parkland’s most stunning spaces such as River Quay, Rainforest Green and the Little Stanley Street Lawns.

In fact, this Saturday (27 February) artist Maja and band The Viola Cloning Project will be delighting audiences with their music at Rainforest Green.

Lying down on the soft green grass surrounded by beautiful rainforest, relaxing with some tunes? Sounds like the perfect Saturday afternoon to us!

And, if you’re ever heading to a River Quay show – why not make it a romantic evening with a bottle of red or white? The green is licensed between 10am and 8pm daily. Please note that to consume alcohol at South Bank, you must be 18+ and you must have food to accompany your drinks. Drink responsibly.

If you’re on the other side of the river, City Sounds is also on in the CBD at various times and locations.

Whether you want to bring the whole family along for a fun afternoon out, or have a romantic picnic with your partner, City Sounds is a great opportunity for everyone to kick back and relax.
