Events, amplified music venues and filming

To achieve the vision for our vibrant, creative city, Brisbane City Council encourages a range of festivals, events, live entertainment and creative enterprises, such as filming.

Council regulates these activities to ensure public health and safety and protect the amenity of the area for Brisbane residents. You may need a permit from Council if you are:

  • planning a festival, event or market
  • operating an amplified music venue in the Valley
  • filming or taking photos for commercial purposes.
