St Kilda Festival is known as Australia’s largest community festival – a celebration of community spirit, Australian talent, and the beautiful St Kilda foreshore. The past two years have been nothing short of a rollercoaster, but it’s finally time return the festivities to St Kilda this February.

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. For it's 41st edition, 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 activated specific St Kilda precincts with an eclectic array of programming from February 5 – February 13.
With over 50 artists performing across the nine-day event―plus street performers, family entertainment, sports demonstrations, market stalls, local community group activations, and more― it did not fail..St Kilda Festival brought the ACTION.
