Intimate. Epic. Yours.

In 2016 The Tiv was saved from demolition and will live on as a gift to the music-loving people of Brisbane. Those who have played her stage will agree there is a magical quality to a gig at the Tiv – her walls not only ooze charm but house a deep musical heritage, as evidenced by the incredible backlog of artists that have graced her stage...

With gigs that feel as intimate as they are epic, The Tiv has become somewhat of a rite of passage for established touring bands and emerging locals alike. In 2017 we’re gearing up to inject new life into this grand old girl, and look forward to playing a continuing role in Brisbane’s renowned music scene. We thank you all, the promoters, the bands, and the fans for your ongoing support.
