Join the 200 Club

Our annual Friends of the Festival program is a critical part of our fundraising activities. However to make this program work, we need a critical mass of 200 Festival Friends.

There's plenty of benefits to being a Festival Friend - check out this page for details and to join the 200 club.

Current Friends of the Festival: 27

Cabaret Festival: the documentary

Want to see what all the fuss is about? The Melbourne Cabaret Festival documentary is now live below.

Diverse, stunning in production values and something that will be revisited for decades to come, the documentary was created by PTN Films and aired by our broadcast partner Channel 31. Thank you to all you extraordinary performers and volunteers who helped make it happen
