Brisbane 2024

The 129th Queensland Eisteddfod will return to Brisbane over the 2024 Easter long weekend (March 29-31), being held this time in the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University, at beautiful South Bank.

Programme Books

Pre-ordered programme books for the competition have been posted. If you ordered a programme but have not received it, please contact us at

Further programmes are available for purchase from Trybooking for $10 plus $3 postage and handling. Purchases made after midday on Thursday 21 March will not be posted, instead being available for collection from the Eisteddfod Office from the afternoon of Thursday 28 March.

It is recommended that all competitors obtain a programme, as competitor numbers will only be published in that book (especially important for those in Items with Preliminiary rounds: Items 132, 133, 134 and 140).


All competitors, teachers, accompanists and audience members will require tickets to be admitted into the competition venues*. Tickets will be available for purchase through QTIX or the Conservatorium Box Office (more information to be provided here when these are on sale).

Season Tickets will allow entry to any venue for any session across the competition weekend, and is the more economical option for those attending more than two sessions.

Session Tickets will allow entry to any venue of the given session (eg. Friday morning).

* Competitors in Youth Choral Items (Items 116-120) will be admitted to the venue free of charge for the relevant sessions only.

Official Accompanists

For those without a programme book, a summary of the weekend’s competition is now available below, including a listing of the relevant Official Accompanists for each Item.

If you have not received this, please contact us urgently at We ask that all competitors contact their relevant Official Accompanists by Friday 8 March, as well as having provided copies of their music, and to arrange rehearsal times.

Rehearsal fees are $15 per selection (payable by the competitor at the time of rehearsal). There is no fee payable by the competitor for the actual performance at the Eisteddfod.

Submission of Own Choice Music

A new online submission process for own choice music selections is being trialled this year. Please complete the form on the Eisteddfod website separately for each piece being performed, no later than Friday, 8 March.

Own Choice Music Submission form

The following information about each piece will be collected: Item Number and Name, Competitor Number (if known), Title of Piece, Title of larger work if applicable (required for Opera, Music Theatre, or Sacred Oratorio/ Cantata), Composer of Piece.

We ask that each piece be submitted as a single PDF file, using the following naming format if possible: [Item No.][Competitor No.][Title of Piece].
eg. For Competitor 3 in Item 101, performing A Soft Day: 101-3-A Soft Day.pdf

Each competitor (soloist / duo / trio / quartet / ensemble / choir) must also complete and submit a Copyright Declaration Form, listing all music that the competitor will perform at the eisteddfod (ie. both set pieces and own choice selections), submitted online along with any one piece of own choice music. All competitors must complete Sections 1, 2, 5 and, if applicable, 3.

Please email with any issues or questions.
