ATTENDING MMF

Q: Do I need to buy tickets or is it free?

A: The Melbourne Magic Festival is similar to the Comedy Festival. It is a collection of different shows produced by many, many different magicians. You can buy tickets to the shows online right now, there are discounts available here, or turn up and buy tickets at the door (unless sold out in advance – or at The Laneway Theatre, which has no door sales at all).

There are some free shows & events, and we have Magic Central at the Spiegeltent Hub were you can buy a drink and meet the magicians before and after the shows.

There is also a MAGIC SHOP in Magic Central during the day where you can purchase tricks, decks of cards and souvenirs.
