What is Fairbridge Festival?

(that's a huge question!)

 

Fairbridge Festival is one of Australia’s most loved, family-friendly music and camping festivals. Held since 1992, it is a place of wonder and magic, with inspiration and delight for all ages at every turn.

 

HistoryThe Team

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

One of the best things about Fairbridge Festival is that there truly is something for everyone here. We have a massive lineup of artists and performers, from all corners of the globe to right here in our own back yard. Nestled in the beautiful surrounds of Fairbridge Village, the festival site is divided up into a few precincts, to cater for everyone from 1 year olds up to 100 year olds! Over the three days, there is an abundance of music, dance, free workshops, crafts, market stalls, delicious food, street theatre, comedy, in-conversation, jam sessions and so much more! Let us show you some of the venues on site that are home to the magic!

MANDJA

The beating heart of our festival, Mandja (Noongar for meeting place) is our main concert venue and home to spectacular live music shows. Head here for the large-scale festival moments, combined concerts and spectacular evening shows. Pop over to Gus’ Bar between shows for a refreshment and a singalong!

THE CHAPEL

Located at the top of Market Street and adjacent to the food stalls area, Chapel is a hallowed place of musical worship. This beautiful acoustic venue is ideal for vocal and intimate music concerts. The adjoining lawns are set up for fun activities for all ages and provide a great place to relax.

KALEIDOSCOPE

Provides all day entertainment for the younger ones (Mums and Dads too!).
Find us east of Clubhouse (museum end) and behind the swimming pool.

PAPER, SCISSORS, ROCK

Located under the trees opposite Kaleidoscope, this space offers hands on art and creative workshops for children of all ages. You will find Face Painting nearby too!

CLUB HOOPLA

Located on the basketball court near the west end of the festival precinct, Club Hoopla hosts a bit of everything, from early morning yoga to a late night jam session! With a relaxed atmosphere and food and drink right where you want them, Club Hoopla has got it all. Put your dancing shoes on and head over for an energetic and enlivening experience!

GUS'S BAR

Centrally located opposite Mandja and the catering area, Gus’s Bar is a Fairbridge Festival institution and absolute festival favourite. This is where you meet up with friends old and new and rub shoulders with artists! Rest your feet and sample the wide selection of beers (including our favourite Guinness). Eftpos available.

CLUB WEST

Located in the west wing of the Clubhouse building, Club West houses many of our workshop program items. From Friday afternoon, right throughout Saturday and Sunday, come along to enjoy festival artists revealing the tricks of their trade.
