POP – UP PROGRAM

The Light in winter!

Over 150 Pop-Up performances across Tasmania

Each year Festival of Voices brings the city of Hobart and surrounds to life through the Pop-up performance program. Whether it is amongst the buzz of a busy Salamanca Market, or fireside in the intimate comfort of the MACq01Lounge, choral groups both large and small will surprise and delight audiences of all ages.

In 2024 the ever popular Pop-up program not only returns, but goes statewide! This year’s mammoth program features more Tasmanian choirs, as well as interstate choirs performing and traveling all over the state!

Check out the program online and keep an eye out for printed versions. You can choose to hear your favourite choirs, or just turn up to a 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.
