Perth Festival 2020

Perth Concert Hall Website Header

On a bedrock of Indigenous culture, Perth Festival 2020 welcomes everyone to a glorious summer celebration of people and place.

More than 250 events across theatre, music, dance, opera, film, visual arts and literature and ideas – many of them free – will dazzle audiences from near and far from 7 February to 1 March.

Mavis Staples, Neil Gaiman, Meow Meow, Rufus Wainwright, Kate Tempest, Bryony Kimmings, Paul Kelly, Garrick Ohlsson, Michael Keegan-Dolan – our 2020 Festival artists are as wondrous as our 14 brand-new Festival commissions that celebrate such diverse figures as Gurrumul, Philip Glass, Beethoven and Bon Scott.

Beginning with the Festival theme of Karla – a Noongar term meaning fire and by extension country and home – new Artistic Director Iain Grandage’s four annual programs on Noongar Boodjar will capture an ever‐expanding orbit of stories from the local to the global.
