ASPIRE International Youth Music Festival is proudly linked with a number of sponsors and key partners. We acknowledge our 2017 key partner, Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University. Their partnership has provided the ASPIRE International Youth Music Festival with a world renowned performance space and brings with it some of the world’s most talented musicians to the forefront of the ASPIRE event.
If you are attending the ASPIRE event from outside the greater Brisbane region, travel must be booked directly with Student Horizons. For all International, inter-state and regional travel enquiries, please email (AUSTRALIA) or (NEW ZEALAND) or contact the Festival events team at
