Pause Fest

Pause Fest is an independent, industry-driven movement with a mission to bring diverse intelligence together to fuel the next generation forward.

We’ve been described as ‘Australia’s SXSW’‘Octoberfest for business’ and ‘Woodstock for digital natives’. In 2019, we welcomed over 500 startups, 1500 businesses and over 24 media outlets from across Australia.

In fact, over the course of nine years, our event has seen 65,000 movers, shakers and creative change-makers come through its doors.
