February / Pause Fest / Melbourne 2019

World’s leading creativity-infused business event.

A catalyst for change, a uniter of all industries, Pause Fest is a platform for the future.

We’ve been described as “Australasia’s SXSW” and as “Woodstock for digital natives” (shucks!). In 2018, we welcomed over 400 startups, 1200 businesses and over 35 media outlets from across Australia.

In fact, over the course of nine years, our event has seen 50,000 movers, shakers and creative change-makers come through its doors.
