Melbourne Cabaret Festival

Filed under: Festivals & Major Events — site admin @ 4:54 pm

Perform in the second largest cabaret festival in the world
New arts partnership announced
Submissions are now open to perform in the world’s second largest cabaret festival and one of Melbourne’s key winter arts events.

Over the past four years, the Melbourne Cabaret Festival has grown to become an iconic Melbourne event much loved by audiences and performers. Following a successful Opening Gala at the Palais Theatre this year, the Festival will again kick off at the Melbourne icon on Thursday 19 June.

The fifth annual Melbourne Cabaret Festival will be held from Thursday 19 through to Sunday 29 June 2014. More info and to submit: http://melbournecabaret.com

Earlier this year the Festival attracted 15,200 people, which was up 89% on last year and 375% on the inaugural Festival in 2010.

New arts partnership
The Festival is thrilled to announce an exciting partnership with Melbourne’s newest arts hub, Village Melbourne.

Located on St Kilda Road, Village Melbourne (formerly Belgian Beer Cafe) offers the art deco grandness of Ormond Hall as a setting for a jointly presented program of cabaret shows.

The partnership will combine Village Melbourne’s superb hospitality offerings with the Festival’s high quality cabaret shows every two months. It all kicks off on Sunday 3 of November (cup day weekend) with one of the highest selling shows in our recent festival, “Dear Blossom”, starring the stunning Fem Belling.

Fem Belling in Dear Blossom
Award-winning jazz vocalist and West End leading lady, Fem Belling, with her band brings to life the independent spirit and wistful romanticism of Blossom Dearie and her music. The ‘childlike’ vocalist with a caviar taste in songs and musicians … Blossom Dearie, Cult Chanteuse, a genre unto herself.
