MELBOURNE | Melbourne Festival is back for 2017 and promises to offer festival goers an array of activities to show off all that makes Melbourne’s arts scene great. The festival has the lofty goal of “using the transformational nature of the arts, culture and creativity to bring about positive change for individuals, communities, and the spaces in which they live”. What this means for you is that over 19 days you’ll get the chance to experience a range of unique international and Australian events in the fields of dance, theatre, music, visual arts, and multimedia. A number of free and ticketed events will be on all across Melbourne meaning there’s something for everyone and every budget.

There’s a lot on, but to help you get started a few of the events that we are particularly interested in are Yang Liping’s “Under Seige“, which rewrites the epochal tale known in Chinese opera and lore as Farewell My Concubine with a high-octane mix of performers from ballet, hip-hop, kung-fu and Peking opera, French duo Romain Bermond and Jean-Baptiste Maillet’s “Dark Circus“, and Melbourne artists Christian Wagstaff and Keith Courtney’s “House of Mirrors“.

Also returning is “Festival Feasts”, a collaboration with several venues to help keep festival goers satisfied on the food and drink front. As well as their usual offerings, each venue has a special offer available for Melbourne Festival Ticket holders, which you find here. We went to the Festival Feats preview and were impressed with the food on offer and venues selected, with a few of our favourites CBD spots included. Venues involved in Festival Feasts this year are:

Head over to the official Melbourne Festival website to take a look at the full programme and to plan your festival. Oh and remember to keep an eye out for the always popular Art Trams, which will be rolling around Melbourne and feature art from Emma Anna, Matthew Clarke, Bushra Hasan, Oliver Hutchison, Justine McAllister, Josh Muir, Robert Owen and the St Albans Heights Primary School’s Community Hub.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
