Seven reasons to go to St Kilda Festival’s 40th anniversary event
Now in its 40th year, St Kilda Festival 2020 is set to be bigger and better than ever.
Australia’s biggest free live music event will take over the St Kilda foreshore on 9 February as an expected 400,000 people flock to the 40th St Kilda Festival.
The festival, which has launched the careers of numerous Australian musicians, will feature more than 50 acts over eight stages and a “secret guest” to be announced on 31 January.
This year’s line-up features some of the nation’s best musicians performing on multiple stages from 10am to 10pm, as well as an eclectic program of workshops, kids’ entertainment, sport, dance, carnival rides, food and drinks, markets, shopping and more.
Revellers are encouraged to dress in ’80s garb – think shoulder pads, big hair, leg-warmers – in a nod to the first festival in 1980.
Roads in and around the festival precinct including Upper Esplanade, Jacka Boulevard and Fitzroy Street will be closed to traffic from 3am and delays are expected on streets leading into the area.
