Provoking and inspiring, Melbourne Festival seeks to connect art forms, people and ideas. At the heart of Melbourne’s culture of creativity, we curate unique experiences that bring people together and break new ground in culture and the arts. Melbourne Festival is one of Australia’s leading international arts festivals and has an outstanding reputation for presenting unique international and Australian events in the fields of dance, theatre, music, visual arts, multimedia, free and outdoor events over 19 days each October. What began as a sister festival to Festival dei Due Mondi in Spoleto, Italy, is now not only one of Australia’s flagship international arts festivals, but also one of the world’s major multi-arts events.
