The hugely popular free festival promises to have something for everybody across 14 streets activated with 13 stages and 7 activity zones, bringing together music, traditional cultural performance, community groups, dance, buskers, circus, parades, fun for the kids, and more.

Among the fabulous lineup of over a hundred acts from Newtown and beyond, including the already announced headlines Ria Hall and Bic Runga, Newtown Festival presents a programme featuring emerging talent alongside established favourites.

Local venues are participating during the festival as well as hosting after parties.
