Engaging and exciting, the Melbourne Cabaret Festival is back from 19 June to 1 July 2018. Melbourne icon Dolly Diamond is at the helm yet again as Artistic Director and is set to leave you thoroughly entertained with new talent and familiar cabaret darlings. Kicking off with a bang, the Opening Gala on Tuesday 19 June at 6.30pm will be hosted by the one and only Dolly D who is in her element, combining her two loves; Melbourne and Cabaret. The show will feature the talents of Alyce Platt, Max Riebl, Justin Clausen and Jamie Burgess, Drew Downing, Erin Hutchinson, Tyler Jacob Jones and Joshua Haines, and Danielle O'Malley.

Experience highlights of multiple shows from across the festival at Chapel Off Chapel, 12 Little Chapel St, Prahran. Book now, as it's bound to be a sellout event. Enjoy discounts if you're a concession card holder, a group of 6 plus, or a festival friend pass holder. Chapel off Chapel have a strict lockout policy, so be sure to get there early for this 90 minute (plus 20 mins intermission) show. For the rest of the festival's program of events, CLICK HERE.

A hard variety act to follow though it may be, Wednesday 20 June show (performances run till Sun 24 Jun) at 6pm, also at Chapel Off Chapel with We've Only Just Begun gives it a good run for the money. Number one Carpenterian fan Angela Giuseppina Lumicisi, a multi-talented artist, will be belting out the music of the Carpenters to entertain you for the evening, all for a good cause. Show your support for both the festival and the Motor Neurone Disease Association of Victoria at this fundraiser event and book your tickets HERE.

Everything else at this 9th annual Festival is like the icing on the cake with a cherry on top; cabaret delicious. With a huge number of talents and shows to choose from, you'll be spoilt for choice with a massive range of Australia's best cabaret shows. Be seduced by an even bigger program with up to 10 performances daily, featuring 20 brand new shows taking you through new works from established and emerging artists before they take their show on the road to national and world festival stages.

Max Riebl - Hard to Handel and Baby Bi Bi Bi on Sunday 1 July concludes the festival. A show about Handel, superstars and the history of pop, one of Oz's finest singers, Max Riebl will breathe fire into classical music, breaking down old and stale conventions associated with the genre.

On the other hand, not so nice, and a little bit naughty, strap in or strap on for Baby Bi Bi Bi. Referred to as wickedly funny and often filthy, it explores questions about being a bisexual woman. When you like your men like you like your women, watch out! Contains swear words and adult themes and here for two performances only. From dark, sexy and powerful to Nancy Sinatra and God Only Knows, catch it all at this exciting arts event. If all else fails, be Shaken by James Bond, and plunge head first into over 50 years of James Bond iconography that pits 7 Bond actors against each other in a race to determine, scientifically, which of them is the greatest Bond of all.
