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!


Braybrook Community Centre Relaunched

Braybrook Community Centre has been transformed and is being relaunched from 25-31 March. Big West Festival is bringing along some of our fave artists, Born In A Taxi and Jo Mott, for the 28 March celebration. For all the details click here!

Record 95 submissions

Thanks to all of the artists and community members who submitted their brilliant ideas for the 2015 Big West Festival! We received a record 95 submissions and unfortunately we're unable to accept any more (you'll just have to start preparing for BWF 2017!). For those that did make the deadline - we can't wait to see your work come to life in November.
