First held in 1980, St Kilda Festival is one of Australia’s oldest and biggest street festivals. A Melbourne tradition, it is a celebration of summer, showcasing Australian artists and talents against the spectacular natural beauty of the St Kilda foreshore.
At first just an epic one-day festival, the St Kilda Festival has evolved into a nine-day event spanning various venues and locations across the entire St Kilda precinct. The Festival routinely attracts between 300,000 and 400,000 attendees who enjoy a wide variety of Australian music and interactive activities, from extreme sports to visual arts to comedy and dance classes, to family activities and fun workshops hosted by local community groups.
The flagship event of the St Kilda Festival is Festival Sunday, held on the second Sunday in February every year. The streets of St Kilda are closed to all traffic the cream of Australian musicians play over five music stages, while people of all ages are entertained with a vast range of performances, workshops and events, from kids’ entertainment to extreme sports demonstrations, dance classes, community activities, buskers and a whole lot more.
