Melbourne Magic Festival

Monday 02 July 2018 - Saturday 14 July 2018

The Melbourne Magic Festival has been amazing and amusing Melbourne audiences for over a decade. After ten years, the festival is moving to The Melba Speigeltent in Collingwood for the first two weeks of July.

Each year, the festival hosts a range of free and ticketed events that see up and coming conjurers performing alongside the world’s greatest illusionists. The festival also includes regular favourites including the entire improvised MagicSports, two spectacular gala shows and the nightly mayhem of The Best Of The Magic Fest.

Budding magicians can take magic classes or compete against other pint-sized entertainers in the Australian Junior Championships of Magic. Meanwhile, the international superstars like Woody Aragon, Mr Tango and Carisa Hendrix fill the 200 seat speigeltent with close up miracles and grand illusions.

This year also sees the festival joining forces with Vision Australia to bring to Magic In The Dark to Australia for the first time ever. Created by Chilean magician Juan Esteban Varela, Magic In The Dark is performed in complete darkness, allowing blind audience members to experience magic while allowing sighted audience members to experience the world as blind people do.
