Rolling Up at St Kilda Festival

First held in 1980, St Kilda Festival is one of Australia’s oldest and biggest street festivals. A Melbourne tradition, it is a celebration of summer, showcasing Australian artists and talents against the spectacular natural beauty of the St Kilda foreshore.

Since 2011 we've been providing Roll Up Bicycle Valet Parking's shiny red-white pushy park on St Kilda Festival’s Big Sunday, with constantly growing bike racks to cater for the bike riding masses. This year there will be two bike valet locations: If you’re coming from the city, take Catani Gardens, here you’ll also find the tune-pumping Silent Disco, fabulous food + chanting from the Hare Krishna Vedic Village and carnival fun in the Kids-Zone.

Because we love to reward you for riding to the Festival (instead of not finding a carpark or sitting in a sweaty tram…), we thought we give a lil’ extra something back and have teamed up with our new friends, the pedal powered smoothie people, Bike n’ Blend who have their juicy-orange tent just next door: Every rider who rolls up at the Catani Gardens bike park  (grab your voucher from the Roll Up desk) will get a discount smoothie ($1 off) … pedal your own: Mango-Speed-Coco Nuts, Apple-Berry-Boost or Tandem-Tangy-Slushie!

The second Roll Up bike park crew will welcome you on the corner Jacka Boulevard/Cavell St., next to Luna Park , where emerging Aussie Hip-Hop, Electro and Indie-Pop artist will be featured on the Push Stage, also not far from the Songwriters Collective, Main Stage and a food truck heaven by the beach.

We’re super stoked and very glad that it’s all happening again, hope you care and come and maybe even give a buck – and then look forward to see you all rolling up at our favourite bicycle valet service:
