Big West Festival is the leading community-based, contemporary arts festival in Melbourne’s West. A biennial festival, Big West stages high quality, cutting edge, multi-cultural and multi-artform events in the venues, cultural sites and suburban streets of the western suburbs, matching places and people in unexpected ways.

The next Big West Festival will take place from 20-28 November 2015!


We need your help!

The Festival is fast approaching and we need your help to make it as fantastic as possible! We're currently on the look out for volunteers to help us with events, front of house, marketing and more. If you've got some spare time and are keen to share your experience with our wonderful Festival team please check out Get Involved.

Call out to participate - children & guitarists!

Big West is commissioning a major theatre work for its opening weekend. Directed by Jessica Wilson, DWELLING, will be a visually rich theatre experience using animated projection, physical performance and special effects to explore women’s homelessness within the home.
