Mudfest is the largest student arts festival in the Southern Hemisphere and takes place every 2 years at the University of Melbourne, the last one being in 2019.

Mudfest provides students with the unique opportunity to be a part of a festival environment that encourages cross-pollination with other disciplines and approaches, as well as fostering an environment of inclusion, and development. Mudfest nurtures, encourages and supports new and innovative arts practices among students, while also providing them with professional and creative development opportunities. Accessiblity and sustainability  have been two main focusses of the past few Mudfests and have been opportunities for students to be at the forefront of more ethical arts practices.

Mudfest has become a significant driving-force of creative power and since its inception in 1990 has established itself as a cultural icon on the emerging arts scene in Melbourne. Presented every two years by UMSU, Mudfest has grown to encompass all forms of artistic expression.
