The Perth Festival is a nonprofit, multi-arts celebration that annually delivers world-class performances, music, film, visual arts, and literary experiences to Perth during the summer season.
With a history spanning over six decades, it’s no wonder that this festival consistently captivates audiences. The program boasts a wide range of events, from world-class performances to thought-provoking exhibitions.
Exploring Northbridge: the heart of Perth’s cultural scene

Northbridge is where the action happens, and you’ll find an array of venues to keep you entertained before and after festival events.
