A female-led, alcohol-free music festival, that was held in Melbourne’s Inner North in autumn 2019. Organised by a group of young women, Summer Dreaming was an event that tackles the gender imbalance in the creative industry, both on the stage, and in its development.


The full-day music festival focussed on the role that music and art play in creating community. On one stage, Summer Dreaming shined a spotlight on a predominantly female and gender diverse line-up. Alongside the concert, there were creative activities for all members of the community to participate in.

In 2020, Summer Dreaming lives on. Looking at expanding into different fields, Summer Dreamign will always be an accepting space for women, gender diverse, and non binary individuals to be as creative, and supported as possible.
