Venue Hire

FAC offers three unique spaces for concert hire, year round – the South Lawn, Front Garden and Inner Courtyard. We can cater for high-profile international acts, national and local performers. Previous acts include Nick Cave, CW Stoneking, Lauryn Hill, Chet Faker, Passenger, James Bay, Hot Chip, Paul Kelly, The Waifs, Archie Roach, PJ Harvey and Flying Lotus.

All concerts have a 10pm curfew. No bookings can be made until Fremantle Arts Centre has approved the act. All shows are 18+ unless otherwise negotiated. Ticketing is run through fac.oztix.com.au, Oztix outlets and Fremantle Arts Centre.

The grounds are not available for weddings, meetings, or other private functions. Canvas Café, nestled within FAC’s building, is available to hire for private events.
