Event Registration


Premier and Open-access Event Registrations

Please scroll through the information below if you're interested in having an event as part of a future Midsumma Festival, and please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to chat about your concept. Also, check out Resources for Midsumma Event Producers for lots of additional background material and information sources. The 2018 Midsumma Festival will open with Carnival and T Dance on 14 January 2018, and will close on 4 February.

Premier Events are selected registered events assessed against selection criteria to ensure they: are relevant to the queer community; have artistic merit or satisfy a community need; have high production quality; are produced by an experienced or proven team; are well organised, especially with regard to publicity and marketing materials; and result in a balance between locations, venues, event types and target markets to ensure the festival is broad and inclusive. Premier Event submissions for Midsumma Festival 2018 have now closed.

Event registrations for Midsumma Festival 2018 will open in late May 2017 and will close on Friday 28 July 2017.
