Discover a new world of art and music in the north of Tasmania

Ever since Launceston’s Junction Arts Festival announced their incredible 2018 program earlier this month, we’ve been chomping at the bit for September to roll around.

Now in its eighth year, the city wide festival will be inviting all-comers for five days and five nights of Tasmanian art, music, theatre, food, wine, and architecture.

Tasmania’s Junction Arts Festival is fast approaching. So here’s out guide to making the most out of this wonderful festival.

Considering how many things there are to see and do, approaching Junction Arts’ huge program can feel a little overwhelming. But we’re here to help you make the most out of this incredible festival.

Firstly, you’re going to want to start your Junction Arts journey at the Festival Hub in Prince’s Square. This is home base. Across the five days, this will be a free music venue and hotspot for the states best bands and producers.

The Festival Hub will also host a selection of food trucks, treating you to Tassie’s best produce.

Among the festival’s huge music lineup will be such acts as Hayley Couper, Heart Beach, ISLA KA, The Saxons, and many many others.

Elsewhere in the festival will be Roundabout , and if there’s one thing you definitely want to check out, it’s this.

Roundabout will be taking place on the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights… and will feature a unique marriage between dance, music and roller disco.

In a world premiere performance created by Junction Creative Director Greg Clarke in collaboration with choreographer Virginia Ferris, the performance will feature an original score by Launceston DJ and music producer Je Bahl.

Launceston’s Devil State Derby League, Launceston College dance students and the Allstar Cheer and Dance Tasmania will all come together for one spectacular performance around Prince’s Square’s iconic Val d’Osne Fountain.
