Blooms & Tunes
Welcome spring with good company and even better vibes at Blooms & Tunes, an afternoon of music and picnic goodness held in Brisbane’s inner-city tropical haven, Roma Street Parkland.
Taking place every Saturday and Sunday in September from 1:00–4:00 pm at Celebration Lawn, Blooms & Tunes promises a relaxed afternoon of live jazz and blues matched with delicious picnic bites. Across the four weeks, you will be able to treat your ears to live gypsy jazz, world and blues from a range of talented local artists. Australian-Fijian singer Andrea Kirwin and the Yamanui Social Club will kick off the celebrations on Saturday September 5, followed by an afternoon of sweet melodies from Ingrid James Ensemble on Sunday September 6. The following weekends will be filled with beats from Cigany Weaver, CC the Cat, Soulergy, Blues Arcadia, Mzaza and many more.
The Garden Room Café will be curating jam-packed picnic hampers, which can be matched with a BYO tipple of choice. Guaranteed to tantalise tastebuds, the baskets are full to the brim with a mouth-watering collection of fresh fare, including delicious crackers, home-made dips, cured deli meats and farmhouse cheeses to snack on. If you want to take your dining experience to the next level, book a VIP picnic space with your hamper to nab the best (and cutest) spot on the lawn – there are only 25 spaces available though, so get in quick! Plus, Blooms & Tunes is dog-friendly, so you can bring along your four-legged friend too – just make sure they are on a leash at all times.
