With meeting rooms, rehearsal spaces, a large performance space and a bar available, as well as technical support, please contact us to discuss your venue hire needs.

Amplified Music Event Venue Hire Policy

Large Scale External Events

FCAC welcomes proposals for large scale music festival venue hire activations that align with FCAC’s programming values and vision.

Large scale amplified music events require approval from both FCAC and Maribyrnong City Council, to ensure all relevant local laws are adhered to.

Proposals for large scale music venue hire events (750 pax+) on the FCAC Lawns must adhere to the following:

  • A minimum lead time of 6-7 months to allow adequate time for the Maribyrnong City Council permit process and adequate support and planning by FCAC. Proposals with less than 6 months will not be considered.
  • Adherence to best practice in noise management, safety, risk and harm minimisation, respect to our neighbours and the environment.

Note that venue hire and event management costs will be payable to FCAC for these types of events. Event permits may attract fees from local Council, which are the responsibility of the hirer.

Small to Medium Scale Events

For music events under 750 people, FCAC does not offer outdoor venue hire to external producers for amplified music events. Events with low level noise or acoustic music may be considered for outdoor events.

FCAC accepts venue hire enquiries for indoor music events, with a maximum capacity of 250-300 people available.

To find out more, please contact events@footscrayarts.com.
