Midsumma Festival is celebrating queer culture in Melbourne with a wide range of performing arts, visual arts, live music events, as well as community and sporting activities all running between 16 January and 6 February, 2011.
Offering a diverse, exciting and relevant program, the festival continues to attract a broad and ever evolving audience to Melbourne and Victoria. Each year over 80,000 individuals across Melbourne and Australia participate in and attend Midsumma Festival events.
The festival opens with Carnival on 16 January, a day-long celebration in the City of Melbourne’s Birrarung Marr, providing access to both queer and mainstream communities to picnic with family and friends as well as engage with community groups and browse the commercial stallholders.
The festivities continue long into the night with T Dance – one of Melbourne’s largest outdoor dance parties – featuring some of Melbourne’s and Australia’s most popular DJs.
Midsumma’s visual arts program features a range of exhibitions in and around Melbourne from emerging & established local, national and international queer artists. Yarra Arts and Queer City play home to many of the exhibitions holding this unique series.
For 22 years, Midsumma has continued to enhance Melbourne as a culturally sophisticated city and strengthen Melbourne's national and international profile as an artistically vibrant and invigorated city.
