The Junction Arts Festival, returns in the first week of September celebrating the heart-shaped island’s finest artists and performers.
Now in its ninth year, Launceston’s Junction Arts Festival (Junction) is an intimate festival of extraordinary experiences in unusual spaces. You’ll discover unique art installations and extraordinary performances created by Tasmanian artists which can’t be seen anywhere else.
Do something different: join a Tweed-adorned bike tour, head to late-night cabaret in the Little Devil, meet the drumming monkeys, or lounge at an outdoor Sunday sun-dappled soiree.
Junction’s Festival Hub is in the stunning 19th century Prince’s Square and is a playground of theatre, dance, art installations, food, wine, music and cabaret. In the buildings adjacent you’ll find site-specific art experiences, Club Barbezat (the Festival’s nightclub), illuminated evening art trails and access to Launnie’s most beautiful homes and spaces.
“Through collaborations with Tasmanian artists, dancers, performers and musicians and presenting their work in spaces unique to Launceston, we have been able to create special events that you will not experience anywhere else,” Junction’s Creative Director Greg Clarke said.
Spring is the perfect time to visit Tasmania’s wild north! Junction’s program has been designed to ensure that visitors can experience the majority of the festival’s key events in one amazing weekend.
