Where You Are Festival launched!

Where You Are Festival – It’s time to experience Canberra’s newest events, and there’s no better place than “where you are”.

Canberra is well and truly on the move again, and it’s time to enjoy what some of the city’s most creative people have been up to during lockdown. 

Where You Are Festival is the typical festival re-imagined, delivering a COVID safe program connecting the ACT community with the best experiences the Canberra region has to offer, both online and offline, from ‘Where You Are’ right now.

Delivered under the umbrella of RISE Canberra, the Where You Are Festival will feature unique Canberra experiences across art and culture, music, ideas and forums, community and food. 

Incredible experiences await, and here’s a small selection…


Hands Like Houses

Born and bred in Canberra, Hands Like Houses are a rock phenomenon offering an exclusive experience for people to go behind the scenes during a live performance as it’s streamed across the globe. The evening will also feature local businesses Megalo Studios, Capital Brewing, Grease Monkey, Mallaluka Wines and more.
