About Simmer Down Festival
The festival’s inter-cultural programme features internationally acclaimed artists alongside the very best in home grown talent. The programme is delivered across three stages including the bandstand, marquees and consists of live music, dance, spoken word, plus educational workshops, and participation activities.
In addition, there is a dedicated young people’s programme in the Children’s Meadow area alongside several fun activities for all the family including face paintings, family rides, a community cricket match, and a selection of belly- busting food stalls offering a diverse range of treats from across the city.
This year for the first time SDF will be a ticketed event, we have kept the festival free for over 10 years for our communities and our diverse intergenerational audiences, in doing so we have created some amazing, shared moments and collective memories.
