Having successfully secured Björk for their 2023 edition, Perth Festival has now unveiled its full lineup for 2024. The lineup is once again full of international talent, including revered Beninese singer Angélique Kidjo, experimental artist Lonnie Holley, and UK singer Sampha.

A number of internationals will be making their Australian debuts while at the festival, including UK veteran funk outfit Cymande, and London singer Greentea Peng (who announced a wider Australian tour last week). On the local front, artists like Paul Kelly, Courtney Barnett, Mama Kin, Shane Howard, Lior, and more will all deliver sets across the festival, which will take place from Friday, 9th February to Sunday, 3rd March 2024.

Noongar Wongi artist Flewnt will return to host the Boorloo Block Party which will feature a bunch of First Nations artists, while the Perth Concert Hall will host a wide variety of orchestral and string quartet works – including Lior and Dr Lou Bennett AM performing Ngapa William Cooper with the Australian String Quartet

Perth Festival also features an extensive visual arts lineup (which is all free), as well as a film festival (led by the premiere of Copa 71, which explores the 1971 Women’s Soccer World Cup), a dance and theatre program, and more. The film festival will kick off earlier than the flagship event, getting underway next month.

The theme of the 2024 festival is Ngaangk – meaning the star, sun, and Noongar term for mother. Have a look over the full program on the website.
