You’ll totally nail it with these brilliant Brisbane-based ideas
Any event manager worth their salt will tell you that entertainment can make or break an event. The challenge is to keep turning up fresh, amazing performers that everyone adores.

Lucky for you, we’ve got our finger on Brisbane’s entertainment pulse. Here we share five of the edgiest roving acts – plus extras we just couldn’t leave out – to make your event nothing short of brilliant.


Why go a-rovin’?

Roving entertainment covers virtually any act performed away from the traditional spot on a stage. It gives so much flexibility to think outside the square for how to create atmosphere, work the space and engage your guests. Roving includes:

  • Stilt walkers
  • Acrobats
  • Statues
  • Character Acts
  • Jugglers
  • Sight acts
  • Moving Musicians
  • Fire breathers

Roving entertainers can interact with audience, creating a more engaging, intimate experience. Costume and lighting transform even the plainest venue into a realm where reality is suspended and imagination takes over.

Most roving performers can tailor their act to meet the needs of your event format, venue and audience tastes.
