After much deliberation, the Greek Community of Melbourne believes that it is in the best interest of the community to postpone the 2022 Antipodes Festival.

The safety of our staff, performers, contractors, and audience are our primary concern and responsibility so we have decided to move the dates of the festival to later in the year.

The new dates are October 22nd and 23rd so save the dates now! We can’t wait to have you join us for the biggest celebration of Greek Culture in Australia.


Antipodes festival is back!
Mark your calendars for Saturday 22nd October and Sunday 23rd October 2022 so you don’t miss out on the largest celebration of Greek culture in the world.
The team at the Greek Community of Melbourne are busily planning behind the scenes in partnership with both State and Local Government so that we can produce the best festival while also being covid safe.
Get excited! It’s going to be a weekend to remember, and we can’t wait for you to be a part of it!

Over the weekend, 100,000 people descended onto Lonsdale Street for Australia’s largest Greek Street party and celebration of all things Greek, the 2020 Antipodes Festival.

Organised by the Greek Community of Melbourne, the Festival featured a record number (over 90) of food, retail and community stalls, over 40 hours of free live entertainment programmed across three stages, children’s rides and attractions as well as plethora of delicious authentic food offerings. 

The event was a huge success and still regarded as the largest celebration of all things Greek outside of Greece, attracting a good mix of intergenerational first-time and regular attendees from all walks of life.
