This year's jam-packed program of over 300 performances of 65 different shows takes over The Melba Spiegeltent, plus almost a dozen venues across Victoria, including as far afield as Phillip Island!

Have you ever seen someone LEVITATE right in front of your eyes? Would you like to be HYPNOTISED or have your MIND READ? Are you looking for a FAMILY FRIENDLY show that will appeal to all ages, or maybe an astonishing demonstrating of pure SLEIGHT OF HAND? How about LEARNING a trick or two yourself?

Be amazed as Melbourne becomes a magical hub this winter for 14 days only with special events, workshops, and live shows for everyone from child-friendly to adults only.

The Melbourne Magic Festival was created in 2008 by The Australian Institute of Magic with the two-fold aim of giving Melburnians the opportunity to see world-class performances of magic in a theatrical environment, and the chance for performers to create shows that express themselves as artists.
