Forging a bold path in the heart of Fortitude Valley, The Foundry is a mammoth two level complex that is part 300-person live room, part rock'n'roll bar, part collaborative space and home to 20 creative studios.
What sets The Foundry apart is its potential to unite the local industry as one giant powerhouse. The top level has been transformed from an abandoned backpackers into the Foundry Studios - an entire floor of studios and office space set to house Brisbane's brightest artists, booking agents, publicists, street press, blogs and 4ZZZ. Supporting Brisbane's creative community takes precedence over profits, with tenants paying rent that matches a music industry sized budget. They’re also provided with free-wifi and the freedom to deck out their studios as they please.
The Foundry's commitment to supporting Brisbane’s music scene does not end here. There's also a dedicated room where touring bands can crash for the night, free of charge. There are dedicated rehearsal studios. The venue does not charge bands venue hire, and it gives them free use of a high quality backline.
The Foundry's 300-person live room is a welcome addition to The Valley’s growing live venue quota, and will surely become a staple for any gig goer, showcasing the best in local and touring acts. Punters can also shoot the shit in the beergarden or shoot some pool next to the rock'n'roll bar.
Confirmed tenants of the Foundry Studios include 4ZZZ, Smackface Records, Lost Movements and Mucho Bravado.
