What an incredible way to celebrate 25 glorious years....

We thought our 25th Festival was seriously great – do you agree? The reviewers certainly do. With comments like "This was a superb festival, like so many over 25 years" (, "...there were more than enough standout performances across the long weekend to create a thoroughly satisfying and well-balanced festival,” (The Age) and “The twenty-fifth edition of ‘Wang’ will be remembered as a monumental program of towering talent and diversity” (The Australian), we're thrilled with how the Festival was received.
