Big Night Out for Cairns Arts

Tanks Arts Centre has been long reputed for embracing and promoting the local arts scene in the region. Now, it is showcasing a ‘big night out for Cairns arts’ with three great events on the one night on Friday the 6th of November. The Big Night Out kicks off with the QMusic Networking Session industry event, then celebrate the launch of the highly anticipated “With Others” exhibition by Regular Rick and friends on the same night. Wrapping up the evening is Tanks Unplugged, featuring fantastic home-grown music.. This is a great way to spend an evening experiencing all the incredible local talent across the arts spectrum in the Far North.


QMusic welcomes anyone in the music industry to attend a networking night at Tanks, right before the final Tanks Unplugged show for the 2015 season. Have a drink on QMusic and hear from Executive Officer Joel Edmondson as he tells us what makes QMusic and its core industry events tick (Bigsound and Qld Music Awards). After mingling with your musical peers, move up to Tank 5 to enjoy the local sounds that have made Tanks Unplugged a permanent event in the Tanks Arts Centre’s annual season! Cost – FREE


Devised by Regular Rick (Ricky Beresford), the art exhibition explores the idea of collaboration and social interaction through art in a contemporary regional context.

Featuring a diverse collection of work from more than 50 of Far North Queensland’s leading and emerging artists, musicians and filmmakers, the project also engages a large cross section of the Cairns community in its development processes. More than 400 participants have had input into the exhibition, from government organisations, local businesses, community groups, schools and individuals. Meet the artists and musicians at the artists’ garage sale, Tanks November Market Day. Cost – FREE


After a four year hiatus, our own Troy Brady, a Kuku Yalanji songman, returns to the local music scene for an exclusive performance of material from his new album. With 20 years of musical experience under his belt, Troy Brady has a compelling way of delivering his distinctive songs that makes you sit up and take notice.

Following the recent release of their latest album “Troppogumbo”, local retro, roots, roustabout and funkabilly legends, Clarketown, will also take the stage to perform their new songs.

One of North Queensland’s most exciting up & coming singer/ songwriters, Greta Stanley, will open the night with a dash of folk and a sprinkle of pop, setting up a wonderfully well-rounded evening of song from some of our best regional talent. Cost – $12
