3-12 May 2019


Ten days of expertly curated music performed by internationally celebrated artists, with thought-provoking conversations and culinary surprises on the side – that’s the Canberra International Music Festival.

Twenty five years ago, members of the Canberra community who shared a love of music began presenting concerts in private homes and embassies. From these small beginnings, the Festival has grown to become a 10-day event with a national reputation for its commitment to excellence and innovation.

We think 25 years is worth celebrating. If you simply wouldn’t miss the Festival each year or this is your first time, we would like to invite you to join with us to make 2019 our “Best Festival Ever”.

See the city in all its seasonal beauty and experience masterpieces on period instruments, delve into the great epics of the past and discover the music of our time in new ways.
