Midsumma Festival

From Sunday, January 20, 2019 to Sunday, February 3, 2019 January 20, 2019 February 3, 2019 Hotel Grand Chancellor

Since it was first held in 1988, Melbourne’s Midsumma Festival has been championing LBTQIA+ culture, creating a safe and inclusive social environment for the Queer community and friends to come together for a collaborative, innovative celebration of queer arts and culture. Held over three weeks from 19th Jan – 10th Feb every year, the Festival program is a loud and diverse mix of visual arts, theatre, spoken word, cabaret, film, live music, parties, sport, social events and public forums in over 100 different venues across Melbourne and wider Victoria to anticipated audiences of over 200,000.

Kicking off with Carnival on Sunday 20th January in Alexandra Gardens and closing with the annual Pride March in St Kilda, Midsumma Festival offers plenty to see and do this summer in Melbourne. For full program information, get out your laptop and go to
