Ever heard a German use the word Gemütlichkeit?

There is no direct English translation, but step inside the Main Tent at Oktoberfest Brisbane for five minutes and you'll get a pretty good feel for the warmth and positive cheer that this word encapsulates.

Thanks to the fantastic media support for Oktoberfest Brisbane again this year, around 40,000 culture-seekers will continue to come to this festival annually to experience the Gemütlichkeit for themselves!
