Art, with a side of fashion: What to wear to MIAF 2019

Consider yourself a bit of an art buff? Know how to get from one side of the dancefloor to the other? Enjoy the occasional spot of theatre? Understand that hypnagogic pop is actually a type of music and not a mobile phone ringtone? Well, we hope your sitting down, because your dream event is taking over Melbourne from 2-20 October. 

The Melbourne International Arts Festival is 17 days worth of provoking and inspiring dance, theatre, music, visual arts, multimedia and outdoor events, designed to connect art with people and celebrate our unmatched culture of creativity! 

Many of the events popping up during the Melbourne International Arts Festival are happening in or around the city, at venues like Federation Square, the Arts Centre, Meat Market, and MIAF’s very own Spiegeltent. It’s practically begging you to come by Melbourne Central to grab a bite to eat and pick yourself a new outfit.
