Event Registration

The annual Midsumma Festival returns in 2018, running from 14 January to 4 February 2018.

Midsumma Festival is an open-access festival; this means that anybody can register their event within Midsumma Festival. In 2017, there were 125 events across 70 venues featured in the open-access stream of the festival. We celebrate queer arts and culture through performance, visual art, sports, social events and queer family events. To get an idea of past Midsumma events, check out the 2017 program guide, the 2016 program guide or the History section of our website.

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.

Event registrations for Midsumma Festival 2018 will open in late May 2017 and will close on Friday 28 July 2017. We're currently updating our registration system, so check back here in late May for information on key dates, registration fees, ticketing and everything you need to provide to register an event with us. However, we can tell you now that at the time of registering you will need a high resolution promotional image, a confirmed venue, a clear concept for your event and be ready to pay the registration fee.

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].
