The QUBE Effect


Are you an emerging artist or band? Want to take your music career to the next level? Brisbane City Council's The QUBE Effect 2022 program provides 24 musical acts the opportunity to take part in a six-month music development program.

Being part of The QUBE Effect will provide artists with the opportunity to network with and be mentored by some of Brisbane's most influential music industry experts. Musicians will develop their skills in publicity, copyright and live stage performance, as well as have their own live music video filmed for thousands of people to watch and vote for in the People's Choice Award.

There will be great prizes up for grabs, including performing at some of Brisbane City Council’s major entertainment events.

Applications for 2022 closed on Monday 4 October 2021.
