The Procedure
NextBack The St Kilda Festival was established in 1979, has become one of the largest, best known, and well loved community festivals in Australia, continuing to promote St Kilda, music, the arts, and the local community. The Festival is successful because it is accepted by the local community, its longevity and size is testimony to this, and because it is about St Kilda – its varied population, and its well-known and iconic landscape. In its 30 th year in 2010, St Kilda Festival is the largest, single day, music event in the Southern Hemisphere showcasing a rich diversity of free music encompassing 60 bands on eight stages covering the entire musical spectrum of rock to pop, world music, jazz to funk, dance, rap, country to techno and everything in between. Whilst the music offers something for everyone and is the central focus of the festival, it is surrounded by diverse activity and a wide range of events from kid fun zones, rock climbing walls, fun fishing and extreme sports to buskers, art exhibitions and fine dining, converting Melbournes famous suburb into a huge pedestrian area in a festival atmosphere.
