Since the first St Kilda Festival in 1980 this well-loved annual summer celebration has established itself as an iconic event that brings the community together. Now entering its 42nd year, St Kilda Festival re-emerges fresh-faced and ready for a revival after a necessary pandemic-induced powernap. With a rich history of showcasing the diversity, talent, and creativity of Australian live music artists, the Festival is back to fill the foreshore with the jubilant sounds of local, live music.
Shifting from the one-day format of recent years, the extended nine-day program in 2022 will activate specific St Kilda precincts with an eclectic array of programming from February 5 – February 13. The same event you love, with a little more time and space to enjoy it.
