New major musical festival

Music promoters and event companies from across the world are being invited to register their interest to be part of a new major festival in the City of Perth.

The City is calling for concepts for a multi-day music and dance festival to support the City’s hospitality, tourism and entertainment industries.

The idea stems from the incredible success of the Fred Again concert in March, proving there is a huge appetite for this style of event.

Perth needs a permanent, lock-it-in the calendar, comes-back every year large-scale event and the City wants to create an event which puts us on the map that supports local business and builds vibrancy for our City. 

The new festival may start in 2025 – possibly in late March/April. It could involve a number of acts spread across a few days.

The goal is to grow this initiative into an annual event which could be the biggest music dance music festival in the Southern Hemisphere.
