Available for five or 10 events, a Festival Pass is the best way to see more MWF21 for less. This year we’ll be staging more than 150 live events across Melbourne.

New in 2021, Pass holders can ‘top up’ their Passes to purchase Highlight events at a discounted price. Festival Passes can also be used to purchase more than one ticket to an individual event, so you can bring a friend (or your entire book club).
