Main Stage

The festival spotlight falls on Main Stage artists and performers at Mother of the Nation 2018. This year’s Stage showcases top local and international performers remains a beloved festival centerpiece.

Like the Sydney Opera House, the grand scaffolding and trussed structure of the Main Stage serve as both performance platform and dramatic festival landmark. Audiences can assemble on the Corniche sands or relax at the Souq Café while enjoying the A-list roster of local and international entertainment or the grand fireworks displays for the opening and closing ceremonies.
