St Kilda Festival has blank space for Taylor Swift

City of Port Phillip
Mayor Heather Cunsolo invites Taylor Swift to St Kilda Festival

Dear Taylor Swift,

Standin’ here, hopin’ it gets to you

We are all looking forward to welcoming you to Melbourne! It feels like the whole of Australia is ENCHANTED to meet you at the Eras Tour this February.

With your upcoming visit, we felt we needed to send you a MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE. I don’t know how it gets better than this, but our St Kilda Festival 2024 is being held the same weekend as the Eras Tour in Melbourne.

St Kilda Festival has a REPUTATION as the biggest free live music festival in Australia! Maybe it’s a coincidence or maybe it’s KARMA – either way, there is a big LOVE STORY between our community and our Festival, and we’d love for you to be a part of it.

We would like to formally invite you to come and visit our GORGEOUS St Kilda Foreshore and meet the MASTERMINDs planning and performing at this amazing Festival.

Since the launch of the first St Kilda Festival in 1980 (not 1989), this well-loved annual summer celebration has established itself as an iconic event that brings the Melbourne community together and displays a breadth of upcoming and established Australian talent.

During DAYLIGHT hours we have delicious food, activities, and fun for the whole family, and as we get closer to MIDNIGHTS, we continue to see some of Australia’s best musical talent to discover, if you’re READY FOR IT. We have some amazing bands that might be your STYLE, including Mallrat, Telenova, Chela, Lotte Gallagher, Thandi Phoenix, Eleanor Jawurlngali Triad, The Merindas, Katie Aspel and The Miffs.
