The annual Midsumma Festival returns from 19 January to 9 February 2020. Registrations to be part of the 2020 festival will open on Tuesday 11 June  and close on 23 August 2019. For enquiries phone 03 9296 6600 or email [email protected].

Midsumma Festival is an open-access festival; this means that anybody can register an event within the Midsumma Festival season. Midsumma is a champion of queer arts and cultures. We work year-round to support producers in the lead-up to the annual Midsumma Festival, providing ongoing advice, workshops, event services and resources.

Want your event to be part of Midsumma Festival 2020? There are five steps to registering an event with us:

  • READ the information below for everything you need to know about registering an event. We recommend familiarising yourself with the registration form before you start to understand what you will need to provide. Feel free to use the Preparation Checklist below to ensure you are ready to start the process.
  • TALK to us. An initial conversation is the best way for our staff to help make your event as successful as possible. Call 03 9296 6600 or email [email protected]. Midsumma is also National Relay Service ready!
  • GET a high resolution promotional image that represents your event for the Official Festival Program Guide and website. You will need to submit this at the time of registering. Read "Your Event Listing: Image" below for more information on the various formats required.
  • LOCK in a venue. You will need to provide a contract or Letter of Agreement with your confirmed venue at the time of registering. Need help finding the right venue? Check our Venues Database or speak with a friendly Midsumma staff member.
  • REGISTER online by the closing date, which will be confirmed once registrations are open. Be ready to pay your registration fee at the time of registering. Late registrations, registrations with missing information, registrations without a confirmed venue or promotional image by the closing date will not be accepted.
