Want to have some fun after things are over in the park on on Friday and Saturday night? At night we move out of the park and over to the Perth Brewery Patio at the Crystal Palace.

The Crystal Palace becomes a licensed  After Hours venue (age 19+), where you can enjoy an amazing night of live music for a $10 bracelet fee each evening.

Did you love a performer so much you wanted to take them home? Well, you can have a little piece of the magic. The CD Tent is also where performers stop by to sign autographs. Autograph opportunities will be announced daily. It is located in the Marketplace right near the mainstage in Stewart Park.

Check out our Marketplace with Artisans, Food Vendors and our Wellness Centre (located in the Bandshell).

There are over 20 restaurants and 15 patios inviting you to sit back, relax, and enjoy a delicious meal.
