Support our journey empowering communities through music

We have a vision to transform lives and communities through music. 

A global leader in community engagement, we have reached one million people through projects in over 100 regions.


Your support plays an ever-increasing role in delivering life-changing musical experiences where they are needed most. We invite you to join the Queensland Music Festival journey.

“Our communities face significant 21st-century challenges, such as social polarisation, climate change, and the loss of local cultural identity. The tools available for communities to actively participate in solutions are few. Music has the unique ability to create a context of togetherness in which communities can create a better future for themselves. Your generous contribution ensures Queensland Music Festival can create transformational musical experiences with genuine social impact.”

  -  Joel Edmondson, Executive Director, Queensland Music Festival

Transforming Communities

Social Impact
Social Impact programs are developed with, for and by communities and use the power of music to bring people together in unique and transformative ways.
Future Music
Future Music initiatives ensure local stories are told on the world stage through commissions, professional development and educational opportunities.
Youth & Education
Youth and Education programs increase access to performing arts experiences and arts education for regional and remote schools.
Indigenous Champions

First Nations initiatives are delivered year-round in Indigenous communities, providing educational, economic and well-being benefits, as well as developing and promoting local artists.
