Winter Solstice Festival of Welcome

  • Federation Square (map)

The much-loved tradition of the Solstice celebration falls on the Saturday night closest to the winter equinox, marking the longest night of the year, and the turning point towards spring. Join us in Fed Square for a fantastic line-up of live music and performances from Robot Child (featuring Waleed Aly!), Ajak Kwai, Circus Oz, the Burundian Drummers, The Hard Aches, King Bell, EMPRESS Stiltdance and more.
