What’s on in Brisbane this weekend

The sun is finally out, just in time for the weekend! Best we make the most of it. Lucky for us, from Thursday May 26 to Sunday May 29 there is plenty to do in Brisbane – you can celebrate community at a fun-filled street fiesta, eat your way through Brisbane's bug and oyster trail, discover a rising songstress or play after dark at an illuminated art show. Here's our pick of some of the best things to do this weekend ... more

Party like it’s 1982 – Gelato Messina is re-releasing its Gaytime and Viennetta-inspired hybrid gelato tubs

For many Australians born in the 1980s or 90s (or maybe just this writer in particular), there is little that can beat the nostalgia-inducing flavour sensation that is the Golden Gaytime. Toffee and vanilla flavoured ice-cream, dipped in chocolate then covered in mouth-watering golden biscuit pieces – what more could you want? That is, unless, the Gaytime is faced with the ultimate contender – the equally (if not more) kitsch Viennetta ice-cream cake. How could one ever decide? Thanks to our friends at Gelato Messina, you don't have to. more

Thankfully, a new luxury activewear label has entered the game and it’s giving us the motivation to emerge from under the covers and get our sweat on. Let us introduce you to KFIT, your new go-to selection of luxe yet minimalist workout attire. more

Kickstart your summer with Calvin Harris and Megan Thee Stallion at Festival X

While our winters in Australia may be milder than most, many of us still spend the cooler months patiently counting down to the glorious warmth of long summer days. Not only does summer bring picture-perfect escapes at the beach and a constant excuse to cool down with ice-cream or sneaky beverage, but it also welcomes a jam-packed festival schedule. The summer of 2022 is set to take festivals to another level, as international acts are finally ready to travel back to our shores and share their music with Aussie fans. Festival X is no exception to this rule, as organisers bring an epic line-up of electronic and hip hop artists to the Gold Coast as part of the five-show national tour. more

Painting, sipping and clay play – delve deeper into the Indigenous Art Program with this series of free events

With upwards of 60,000 years of history on the land we call Australia, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people carry a rich and storied cultural heritage that has been passed down for generations through art and storytelling. Celebrating First Nations artists and their depth of culture, the Indigenous Art Program brings these stories of truth, strength and determination into our streets and laneways, showcasing works in Brisbane’s sprawling Outdoor Gallery. From May 7 to August 7, you can discover the OUTstanding exhibition, which showcases new and existing artworks from 12 emerging and early career artists. Through large-scale banners, light boxes, projections, walking tours, workshops and more, the 2022 program acknowledges our unsung Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heroes and speaks to unresolved issues, conciliation and truth-telling in this country. To help you navigate… more
