Welcome to Saideira, Queensland's original, and only dedicated Brazilian festival
celebrating all the colours of Brazilian life, culture and music!
From the streets of Rio, the clubs of Minas Gerais and the towns of the north-east, come the sounds of rejoicing and sharing in the spirit of Brazilian life. Saideira simply and joyfully communicates the rhythms of the everyday in an exuberant celebration of a beautiful and rich musical and cultural heritage.
With music at the heart of Brazilian life, Saideira features some of the finest Brazilian bands in the country, from long-established, award-winning international touring bands, to new-comers; all of them made up of musicians from both countries. A true OzBrazilian blend of music, and the perfect way to celebrate the friendship of two cultures.
In 2014, for the very first time, Saideira welcomed an internationally acclaimed artist as its Festival Ambassador: the legendary drummer,
Mestre Marcio Bahia was in the house!
