About Mudfest

The University of Melbourne Student Union’s (UMSU) Mudfest is a biennial student led ARTS FESTIVAL that has established itself as a cultural icon on the emerging art scene in Melbourne. Reminiscent of Melbourne Fringe, Mudfest is a unique opportunity for students to get real-world experience directly on campus. Any student can get involved in creativity on campus. They can build confidence, bring new works to life, develop networks, experience professional mentorship, and build lasting friendships.

Artistic expression is at the heart of the Festival. Mudfest provides a safe environment to experiment, be challenged and gain valuable experience in presenting your work.

The 2023 MUDfest marks a return to campus from online learning, it also welcomes the Festival into its new home in the Arts and Cultural Building (BN 159) in the University’s newest Precinct.  This space, and the surrounding sites the Student Pavilion (BN 162) and Market Hall (BN 189) will each house a curated program of music events, exhibitions, theatre shows and so much more. This is why we would love to hear from you and be part of an atmosphere of creativity, artistic collaboration and festival vibe in August!   

Artist grants of $200 per individual and $400 per group project are here to support the development and creation of your art projects!
