Become A Festival Friend

Perth Festival of the Arts has an incredible network of Festival Friends who support us, attend events and enjoy benefits. Their support helps us develop our Festival each year and supports our work as a local charity.

We need our Friends' support to help us through this very different year in 2021, as we move our Festival online and outdoors. Whilst we are unable to offer any live concert tickets at this time, we have created a range of Friends benefits that include priority booking for our Drive-in Cinema, priority access to our online interview/ Q&A interview sessions with artists, and for Best/ Lifetime Friends, the exclusive opportunity to view a recording session in progress, should regulations allow.

We have 3 annual membership options so you can choose the benefits that best suit you.
