Archie Rose Takes On Brisbane, And You're Invited

Celebrate Brisbane Festival and BIGSOUND with Archie Rose

Introducing your September celebration itinerary — in good spirits — at Brisbane Festival and BIGSOUND this September.

Brisbane Festival

1-23 September

We’re excited to support Brisbane Festival — for the sixth year running! — as the heart of arts and culture in one of our favourite sunny cities. The river and iconic city landmarks are our stage and Archie Rose is flowing. With Brisbane Festival’s commitment to inspiring you with new ideas and experiences, Archie Rose couldn’t help but join in as the cherry on-top (with a few drinks to match). Over three spirit-packed weeks, the specially curated international program will take you from performance art to immersive light installations, theatre and dance shows, and back again. Click here to see what’s on.

Find us across some of these iconic festival venues to enjoy this breathtaking festival with a glass of Archie Rose in hand.
