Midsumma Festival

Event Registrations Open for Midsumma Festival 2021

We want you to join us at Midsumma to bring our communities out of 2020 and start our planning for Midsumma Festival 2021. Our open-access event registrations are now open, and we are going to work with you to make this the best celebration of queer arts and culture that we can.

Midsumma Festival is open access, which means that anyone can register to be part of the festival. So be a part of the festival that celebrates queer or LGBTQIA+ creativity in all its glory and enjoy the warm embrace of our communities. We all have something important to say and each year we are widening the reach of your message.

Every January, Midsumma Festival expands over 22 days of summer with an explosion of queer events that center around hidden and mainstream queer culture, locally and internationally. The Midsumma program shares the lived experiences of those voices at the margins, the expression of queer history, and the celebration of new ideas that come to life through world-class art and performance. 

Our festival program is made up of diverse art forms and genres, including visual arts, live music, theatre, spoken word, cabaret, film, parties, sport, social events, and public forums. Featuring over 194 events in 2020, with involvement by over 5000 culture-makers in over 100 different venues across Melbourne and wider Victoria - to anticipated audiences of over 261,806.

Once you have registered your event, you will be able to go to eventotron.com to change details up until the deadlines associated with the various sections - the deadline is 24 August for printed guide information. Once you finalise your registration, you will need to contact us to request changes to your printed guide details.
