Brisbane International Guitar Festival

The Brisbane International Guitar Festival (BIGFest) was established in October 2016 by Artistic Director, Mervyn Langford, as a means to bring together the Brisbane guitar community and present a weekend of concerts and master-classes featuring international artists, Adriano del Sal and Gian Marco Ciampa. The success of BIGFest’s debut resulted in a massive expansion of the festival for 2017. It now spans from March to September with more concerts, master-classes and events.

All BIGFest events are hosted by Magda Community Artz.
