“RE//Perth is the latest in a series of new events being developed in Western Australia in line with our events strategy, as we focus on having an ‘always-on’ approach and strive to populate an exciting, diverse and world-class calendar of events year-round.

“This festival will continue to create vibrancy in Perth during the winter months, bringing more people into the city to experience the multitude of experiences RE//Perth has to offer.
