QMusic Presents Queensland Week Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Music Showcase

As part of The Queensland Government’s 2013 Queensland Week celebrations, QMusic is pleased to present a celebration of the work of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performers from across our great state, in conjunction with the Brisbane Powerhouse.

The showcase is a free family event, kicking off 8pm, on Brisbane Powerhouse’s Turbine Platform Stage. 

The Queensland Week Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Music Showcase will feature one of Toowoomba’s finest exports, singer songwriter, Sue Ray; the funky pop sounds of Rockhampton’s Slip on Stereo; Yarrabah reggae rockers Djun Djun Jarra; and upcoming MC CY, out of Stanthorpe.

The showcase is an important part of the Queensland Government’s Queensland Week celebrations. Running June 1-9, Queensland Week commemorates the state’s official separation from New South Wales, and celebrates everything that is great about living in Queensland. On 6 June 1859, Queen Victoria signed the Letters Patent, authorising Queensland's separation, and confirming its status as an independent colony. This day—6 June—is now known as Queensland Day.

Don’t miss your chance to join in this free community event, celebrating some of the finest talent our great state has to offer.
