Despite our short history; Guitar Brisbane already has showcased a variety of talent from around Australia, the USA, Italy, Spain and France.
Based at Magda Community Artz, Guitar Brisbane is a regular concert series. Our venue is a renovated Church, previously St. Mary Magdalene, in the leafy suburb of Bardon, Brisbane. In this space, audiences have the chance to sit up close and hear some of the worlds leading guitarists and musicians in a beautiful, relaxed intimate environment.
We hope to see you at one of our upcoming concerts.

In 2016 Magda Community Artz jumped at the opportunity to host a concert with Italian guitar maestro, Adriano del Sal. Adriano was in Australia as a guest of the Melbourne Guitar Foundation, performing and adjudicating at the Melbourne International Guitar Competition. His concert at Magda's was one of three on this whirlwind visit. So we established the Brisbane International Guitar Festival - BIGFest, 2016.
Almost immediately we received requests from guitarists everywhere - literally everywhere! - to come and play. With a growing number of stunning, local guitarists also eager to perform, it became apparent that BIGFest needed a sister organisation. So it is with tremendous pride, we have created an umbrella: GUITARBRISBANE.ORG.
