Gearing up for vast array of winter events as Festival of Voices tickets go on sale

Nic Street,Minister for Hospitality and Events

The Tasmanian Liberal Government has always invested in events that are seasonally and regionally diverse, with more than $11 million having been invested into 31 events that will take place in the coming six months alone.

From AFL football in the north and south, the Australian Musical Theatre Festival in Launceston, Dark Mofo in Hobart and the new AgriCULTURED festival in the north, the variety ensures there is something for everyone.

I’m pleased to confirm that tickets for the Festival of Voices have gone on sale for the coming festival that will take place from 1 July through to 10 July 2022 and I would encourage Tasmanians to snap up a ticket.

A long-time anchor of our winter events program, the Festival of Voices began in 2005 and forged the way for Tasmanians and mainlanders to get out and celebrate our state when it was traditionally quiet. Events have repositioned our state through this part of the year and fundamentally changed people’s perception of how to spend the longer nights.

This year’s festival will have a strong focus on encouraging participation from Tasmania’s regional communities, with activations and programmed events scheduled to occur on Tasmania’s East Coast, North West Coast and Derwent Valley areas, as well as in our major cities.

Highlight performances of this year’s event include Australian singer-songwriter Lior, Monica Trapaga and The Pocket Trio, and cabaret style band The Loveys as well as the iconic Big Sing event retuning to Macquarie Point.

The Tasmanian Government is committed to assisting our thriving events sector rebuild and recover. As part of this commitment, the Government, through Events Tasmania provides funding opportunities to a variety of events that attract people to our state and encourage regional dispersal of these visitors.
