Townsville turns up the volume this May with an epic three-weekend celebration of the best in Australian live music.

You’ll find music in every corner of the city – with pop-up performances in the streets by Australian music royalty, country music legends playing sets on suburban stages, intimate gigs in Townsville’s favourite venues by the best new artists – all culminating with North Queensland’s favourite day long festival – Tropic Sounds!

Whether you’re into dancing to driving techno tracks, toe-tapping to country anthems, chilling to the sounds of sweet swirling folk harmonies, popping and locking to heavy-hitting hip-hop beats, or singing along to the best in Aussie indie rock – there’s something for everyone!

Put the dates in your diary and make sure you register here for updates!
