Music

Livespark + Mixtape

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Sugarrush Music

Breeze into the week with a good dose of free live music on Sunday afternoons.

Join us at Livespark each Sunday for an ever-changing and eclectic mix of indie, pop, folk, alternative country and rock. 

Mixtape continues on the last Sunday of every month, offering unique collaborations between singer-songwriters. Three musicians are brought together to discuss the music that drives them and to perform their own mix tape of original songs or covers. 

Check out our line-up for May–June:

28 May     Francesca de Valence, Emma Dean, Sarah Collyer and Natalie de Jager

04 June    Ruby Gilbert + Chris Pickering

11 June    Lisa Crawley + Roz Pappalardo

18 June    Heed the Porter + Dave Orr Band

25 June MIXTAPE:    Hannah Macklin + Ash Kerley

Over the past decade, SUGARRUSH Music has emerged as one of Queensland’s most diverse music companies. Originally solely an independent record label, SUGARRUSH now releases and manages artists, while also promoting shows and rolling out a host of community music programs. Run by Deb Suckling and Craig Spann – both artists themselves – SUGARRUSH has a proud history of supporting artists from across the genre spectrum. And it is that emphasis on diversity that they will be bringing to the Livespark program in 2017 – one of Brisbane’s longest running and most popular free live music platforms.

Brisbane Airport is keeping this free. Mixtape is proudly supported by APRA AMCOS
