Melbourne International Arts Festival 2009 Melbourne International Arts Festival is Australia's premier celebration of international performing and visual arts and Melbourne's flagship cultural event.
Since first being staged in 1986 as the third Spoleto Festival (with Spoleto, Italy, and Charleston, USA), Melbourne Festival quickly forged an unique identity and remains the
only festival in Australia to be born from international heritage.
Held over 17 days each October, Melbourne Festival is the pre-eminent destination festival in the nation, exclusively debuting and premiering some of the finest national and international artists and companies. Each Festival brings an unparalleled feast of dance, theatre, music, visual arts, multimedia and outdoor events from renowned and upcoming Australian and International companies and artists to Melbourne.
Through excellence, diversity and accessibility, Melbourne Festival presents the best possible artistic experience to as many people as possible. It proudly offers a wide variety of venues and ticket prices, plus many free events.
