What is Anywhere Festival?

Anywhere Festival is a festival of performances and events held anywhere - comedy in cafes, music in parks, opera in libraries, new plays in car parks, poetry in record stores, storytelling in parks. Anywhere but a theatre. Instead, the events are held in businesses and public spaces.

Over four years, Anywhere Festival has grown in Brisbane from 26 events in 2011 to 420 performances in 2014 to become one of the great arts success stories.

In 2015 Anywhere Festival is growing further to Mackay and Isaac regions, Parramatta and Frankston.

Each Anywhere Festival draws locals and tourists alike with expected attendance in 2015 of a combined 30,000 ticket purchases, 100,000 experiencing a free performance and a broader awareness exceeding two million through marketing and media.
