Singing comes to the streets of Hobart…and Beyond

Each year the Festival of Voices brings the city of Hobart and surrounds to life through the Choirs in the Community Pop-Up Performance Program. Whether it is amongst the buzz of a busy Salamanca Market, or fireside in the intimate comfort of the MACq01 Lounge,  choral groups both large and small will surprise and delight audiences of all ages.

In 2022 the ever popular Pop-Up Program returns, featuring familiar venues as well as a host of new ones. You can choose to hear your favourite choir, or just turn up to a pop-up venue and be surprised! One thing is for sure – you won’t be disappointed!

Bringing joy through song is what the Festival of Voices is all about, so come along and hear some unique performances and experience the power of voices in harmony.
