Events: Melbourne Fringe, Muff and Mexfest 2014

Melbourne loves its festivals, and as we head towards summer they’ll just keep coming. And coming. Here’s a few, to begin with.

Starting tomorrow is the Melbourne underground Film Festival. Founded in 2000, MUFF celebrates ‘avant garde, cutting edge, and underground film from both local filmmakers and abroad’ and has drawn fire in the past for screening banned films.

This Sunday, Federation Square will host the Mexican Festival, where you’ll find live music and dance performances, tasty food and the traditional ‘El Grito’ ceremony to mark Mexican Independence.

And finally, next week will kick off the fabulous Melbourne Fringe Festival, showcasing a tonne of local artists from theatre, circus, music and cabaret to dance, visual art, live art, comedy and kids performers. Check out the full program here.

Time to get festive, Melbourne!
