We are not just another festival. We are The Other Festival. Connecting, building and supporting our entrepreneurial spirits in the face of an ever changing world.

We are the best, the strongest, the boldest of our generation. We are a squad of renegade businesswomen in the form of artists, musicians, chefs, photographers, entrepreneurs, activists, inventors, storytellers, designers, and we are here to make things happen.

Don't miss out on the biggest cultural event of the year. The Other Festival showcases the talented makers who are breaking the rules and redefining how business is done. Check out what we have in store here.

And this is only the beginning of our story.
