#About Us

The Queensland Government established the Queensland Music Festival (QMF) in 1999, inspired by an ambitious vision of how a state-wide biennial music festival might help address the geographical and social disadvantage experienced by our significant regional and remote populations. Over its 23-year history, QMF has delivered events to over 1 million people across over 100 towns and cities across Queensland. These events have embodied QMF’s unique and ambitious artistic programming model, bringing leading artists and communities together to create music experiences that celebrate the cultural identity of Queensland’s people and places.

QMF is currently undergoing a significant transformation of the way it partners with communities, artists and other organisations to stage music events that create measurable social and economic value for Queensland’s cities and towns. In 2021, the organisation launched Queensland Music Trails, a world-first music tourism initiative, and is entering a period of growth in its delivery capacity from 2023.

QMF recognizes the importance of First Nations leadership and collaboration, and we commit to walking together on a journey of shared learning. We respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the country on whose lands our projects are created, performed and celebrated.
