13 – 24 Dec
The City Sounds Christmas Up Late
7pm, 8pm, 9pm at Queen St Mall

While you are doing your late night Christmas shopping this festive season, get your fix of live music at the Queen Street Mall, The City's live music hub. The City Sounds Christmas Up Late is a stage for touring national and international artists. Showcasing only original artists across multiple genres, the line-up will be a celebration of emerging Brisbane music talent. It’s all free for you to enjoy as you discover the magic of Christmas throughout The City.

Once this is all over and the turkey has been eaten and you have heard your Great Aunt tell the same story hundreds of times it goes without saying that the real shopping action and slashed prices begin on Boxing Day (if you are game enough) otherwise the New Year is the perfect time to snap up a bargain or twenty.
