PERTH FESTIVAL'S STORY
Perth Festival is a not-for-profit multi-arts festival that brings world class performance, music, film, visual arts and literary events to Perth, Western Australia, every summer.
The Festival has been celebrating Perth, its people and its culture on the shores of the Derbarl Yerrigan (Swan River) for nearly 70 years as Australia’s longest-running arts festival. Grounded on Noongar Boodjar, it is uniquely placed to celebrate the oldest living cultures in the world by championing rich Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander traditions and contemporary arts practice.
Founded in 1953 from the University of Western Australia’s annual summer school entertainment nights as a ‘festival for the people’, the Festival has seeded and cultivated decades of cultural growth through commissioning major new works and engaging diverse audiences.
Festival time in Perth is when the best artists from Western Australia and the world stand shoulder to shoulder in creative unity within the community.
