8th MELBOURNE UKULELE FESTIVAL

Estimated Date : 9th to 11th MARCH 2018

MUF to return in 2018

The team behind MUF is excited to announce that we are planning a return to the traditional MUF timeslot of early March... but since MUF2016 was only a short while ago, first we need a little bit of a break! So there won't be a full scale Melbourne Ukulele Festival in 2017, but if things work we might still host a smaller event or two during this year.

We still have a lot of details to work out, including dates and venues, but for the moment we're aiming at approximately 9-11 March, 2018. We'll keep you updated with any news! All being well, we will accept performer applications around October/November 2017.

This one is a MUST! A great bunch of people and an excellent time with lots of variety in performances and a real buzz around the streets of Northcote in the coffee shops, bars and main venue hall.
