Queensland Music Festival 2013

Queensland Music Festival gets set to once again take over the Sunshine State from July 12 to 28. With hundreds of events programmed in over 30 regions across Queensland, the best of local, national and international talent will perform every conceivable style of music to Queenslanders from all walks of life, from Warwick to Winton, Mackay to Mt Isa, Birdsville to Brisbane and beyond.

Queensland Music Festival Artistic Director James Morrison brings his own creative musical history and showbiz to this year’s QMF by igniting artistic potential, telling local stories and transcending boundaries.

For Morrison, each project echoes QMF’s vision to transform lives through unforgettable musical experiences.

“From one-off musical experiences, intimate storytelling-based events to large-scale free musical spectaculars and world record attempts, there are plenty of opportunities for Queenslanders to kick up their heels and experience live music like they’ve never heard it before,” Morrison said.

“In Gladstone we are staging Boomtown which tells the story of this vibrant city in a musical spectacular that is the largest production we’ve ever undertaken.

“Imagine hundreds of performers on stage, a set too big to fit in any theatre, singing, dancing, bands, choirs, a fire-breathing dragon and zombies…. and you’re only half way there!”

Brisbane will see the World’s Biggest Orchestra assemble and ‘blow in’ the opening of QMF with an official record-breaking performance that puts Queensland in the history books.

“Add to that the world’s largest trumpet ensemble (led by yours truly) and the Sunshine State will be swinging!” Morrison said.

Brisbane’s Riverstage will also come to life with How Deep is Your Love, where a star-studded collection of iconic Australian artists will pay tribute to the Gibb Brothers’ amazing songbook – all backed by a 35 piece orchestra under the stars.

“With so many great hit songs and so many of this country’s greatest singers, this will be a moment to remember in Australian music history.”
