Event Info

About Foreshore

2012 will be Foreshore’s 6th year of award winning live music, friends, and summer celebrations. We have hand picked acts from around the globe - as well as your backyard - and created a line up full of the best electronic acts, live bands and noisemakers just for you.

Foreshore is moving back to the Foreshore in 2012. Commonwealth Park, encompassing Stage 88, Regatta Point and the lush surrounds will be the breathtaking setting for this year.

Foreshore is an 18+ event happening on the 24th of November 2012, gates open at 11am and headline acts are on early, so make sure you plan accordingly.

More than just music

Foreshore is more than just about the music, it is about the total festival experience including one of the most beautiful and unique festival sites in the country. We have plenty of room to grab a beer and chill on the grass with your mates or get right in amongst it on the stage barrier - take it at your own pace and have a great day.

Party in style

We have made sure there are lots of toilets in convenient locations, complete with toilet paper and people to clean them, bars with no lines, free water and a variety of interesting food stalls to eat at. Sound too good to be true? Check out our Event Facilities for more details.

Keeping it green

We are serious about reducing our festivals impact on the environment and spreading the environmental sustainability message. We have a highly effective recycling program on site to keep Foreshore and our planet green. Check out our environmental policies and initiatives.

Location location

Our festival site is on Ngunnawal land, please acknowledge and respect this when coming to Foreshore.

Foreshore is situated in the very heart of Canberra at Commonwealth Park. This is truly one of the most amazing festival locations in the country and is of significant national importance. Please treat our great new festival site with respect so we can return each year.

The 2012 Foreshore site will include Stage 88 and Regatta Point, taking the festival back to the Canberra foreshore. Doors open at 11am.
