COVID-19 Update

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we bring you the news that the 2021 St Kilda Festival will not go ahead due to risks and uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

We know this will bring disappointment to those who support the St Kilda Festival year on year and we too feel that sadness. Our thoughts are with those in the arts and events industries who work tirelessly to deliver the events we love, and continue to feel the strain and devastation of cancelled events due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To our partners, event staff, artists, suppliers, stallholders, volunteers, local traders and, of course, our enthusiastic festival-goers, we can’t wait to see you when we return in February 2022. 

And to steal a phrase from Hot Dub Time Machine (pictured closing out the 2020 Main Stage), it'll be the Best. Party. Ever.
