The spectacular Melbourne Magic Festival is back these Winter school holidays and is celebrating its tenth year!
Since magically appearing on Australia's major event calendar ten years ago, The Melbourne Magic Festival has attracted over 10,000 magicians and magic fans from all over the country and beyond to create one of the world's greatest family festivals.
Originally housed solely at The Northcote Town Hall, the festival has outgrown its home base with this year's program featuring events at the Arts Centre Melbourne, The Magic Zone in Bayswater, The 86 in Collingwood, Tall Dark & Art in Moorabbin, Swinburne University in Hawthorn and The Magic School of Confidence in Malvern East, making it the largest magic festival in the southern hemisphere.
This year's awesome program consists of over 300 performances of 65 different shows starring top international guest magicians from all over the world and over 60 magicians from around Australia! Highlights include Joshua Jay, Lee Eun Gyeol and Dani DaOrtiz, who will perform, lecture and present masterclasses as part of this year's line-up! With such a diverse array of talent on show, there's mind-bending fun for all ages - including Adult Magic Shows!
