Get your notebook and calendar out and mark Saturday 1st to Sunday 9th February 2014. ‘Cause it’s St Kilda Festival again!
First held in 1980, St Kilda Festival is one of Australia’s oldest and biggest street festivals. At first just an epic one-day festival, the St Kilda Festival has evolved into a nine-day event spanning various venues and locations across the entire St Kilda precinct.
It’s an epic event you definitely shouldn’t miss!
More than 50 venues will play host to over 150 artists from Saturday 1st to Sunday 9th February 2014.
The Festival’s nine-day program will wrap up on the Sunday with the iconic Festival Sunday, where the sunset time slot will see Art Vs Science perform on the Main Stage, while King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard plays adjacent on the O’Donnell Gardens Stage and Bob Evans takes on the Alfred Square Stage.
The Main Stage will also host performances from soul and funk group The Bamboos, Mat McHugh from The Beautiful Girls, melodic duo Busby Marou, St Kilda local and Australian luminary Renee Geyer, indie-rock band Kingswood and emerging artist Shaun Kirk (winner of the New Music Stage competition in 2013). Readers can check out the full list of artists added to the Festival Sunday roster below.
The program also features visual art, comedy, film, dance, community events and family activities, providing opportunities for emerging artists across all art forms to shine alongside some of our best known and iconic acts.
