“There’s never anything to do in Townsville.”

Ha! Try again.

It’s hard to believe we’re already a month in to 2017, but what’s even more unbelievable is the number of events that are already filling up our calendars! We’ve rounded up our top five picks of what to do across the city this month.

  1. Indo Pop: Indonesian Art from APT7, Perc Tucker Regional Gallery

This is Indonesian art like you’ve never seen before – telling the story of artists’ lives during the Suharto regime in all mediums from sculpture to video, there is something exciting to experience for all ages in this exhibition. Runs until March 19.

‘Green Hypermarket’, Edwin Roseno.
  1. Townsville Choral Society presents: Grease, Townsville Civic Theatre

Perhaps the most well-known musical with the catchiest songs, there is no way you can miss singing along when Sandy and Danny take over the Civic Theatre stage from 8-18 February. Read a Director’s Note from Kate Retzki here!

  1. RÜFÜS Full Bloom Tour Street Party, Shamrock Hotel

With five ARIA nominations under their belt and a bunch of US Festivals including Coachella and Lollapalooza behind them, RÜFÜS are road tripping around regional Australia before they bunker down to pen their next album. Catch them headlining the Shamrock Street Party on February 25.

RUFUS will headline the Street Party on 25 February.
  1. LO’99, Secret Location

Flinders Social may have shut up shop for now, but the boys are still working hard behind the scenes to keep live music pumping in Townsville. LO’99 uses incredible rhythm and vocal lines to deliver unbelievable performances, with rhythms like no other. Supported by Hood Rich, High Life and more, the venue of this event will only be shared with ticket holders. With doors opening at 9pm this Saturday, 11 February, grab your tickets now!

  1. Fri-YAY Mini Markets, Bella Dance Affairs

The inaugural Mini Market will feature stallholders selling everything from crafts to makeup, with stall sizes ranging from tables and tables to those selling out of a suitcase. The first market will be held from 6pm on Friday, 17 February, and is sure to get bigger and better with time!

There are so many exciting events popping up all over the city, so don’t just take our word for it – visit your local venues, message local creatives, keep an eye on and find out what’s coming up!
