The spectacular Melbourne Magic Festival returns to cast its spell across Melbourne these winter school holidays!
Now in its 15th year, the Melbourne Magic Festival is officially recognised as the largest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. This year's jam-packed program returns to Arrow on Swanston as well as venues in Northcote, Frankston, Narre Warren, St Albans and Shepparton.
Over two incredible weeks, the best magicians from around Australia will come together to amaze and amuse magic lovers of all ages! The exciting 2022 line-up includes Simon Coronel (Penn & Teller Fool Us), Dom Chambers (American's Got Talent), and Dr Vyom Sharma (The Project) in Headliners, the massively popular kids' magic show The Greatest Magic Show with Sam & Justin, and the adult show Life of Davo "magic bogan theatre" of NSW magician Dale Trueman.
"The Melbourne Magic Festival is the magic community's annual gift to Melbourne." said artistic director Tim Ellis. "The festival is run by the magicians themselves. This is our chance to elevate our art form and inspire, excite and tell stories through the art of wonder and amazement."
"Magic is one of the few art forms that appeals to everyone in the family," said Ellis. "Adults, teenagers, and children can enjoy the thrill of being fooled together."
