Located on the fall of land between the Festival Theatre and the Dunstan Playhouse, The Summerhouse is our Festival home and hub.
This beautiful chequered pavilion houses a relaxed open-air auditorium where from eight in the morning you can begin your Festival day listening to the brilliant minds of Tom Wright and his guests as they discuss the issues of the day atBreakfast with Papers.
Come back around sunset and hear the country’s coolest contemporary musicians and DJs playing in a line-up of shows that will have you wanting to return night after night after night.
And finish your day overlooking the shimmering waters of Karrawirra Pari as you meet your friends for a pre or post-show drink in our fabulous Crescent Bar.
Come and join us and play and talk and laugh and listen under the stars in this precious circled corner of our world.
