Want to stage an event at the Pride Centre? – Midsumma 2024 EOIs are now open!

Expressions of interest for Midsumma Festival 2024 are now open! The Victorian Pride Centre is excited to host its second year of Midsumma programming which will feature events that connect, support and amplify LGBTIQ+ voices!

As Midsumma Festival is Australia’s premier queer arts and cultural festival, a broad range of performances will be curated that showcase the Pride Centre’s values of pride, support, celebration and belonging. These performances will cover a range of styles across cabaret, comedy and theatre from a mix of bright, emerging artists and established acts within our diverse LGBTIQ+ communities.

We are accepting expressions of interest for performances to take place in our stunning Theatrette which comes equipped with a sound system, lighting and projector and other spaces around the centre, in consultation with our Venue & Events team. We will be holding multiple shows in the evenings, with a run time of 1 hour per show (later shows may run longer by negotiation). Daytime sessions are also available. Venue hire fees for free events will be by negotiation. 

Applications will remain open until Midsumma Festival registrations close (September 1, 2024) however we will be programming shows as we receive expressions of interest so slots may fill up before then. Get in quick!

Fill in your expression of interest form on the website HERE.

The Victorian Pride Centre’s Theatrette is a wheelchair accessible venue with hearing loop.
