BESIDES its great coffee and its hipsters culture, Melbourne is also known as the culture hub that hosts many great independent artists and acts alike. If you are clueless to where you can find these acts and performances, the Melbourne Fringe Festival is back again this year from now to October 9 to deliver you from your craving of fresh creativity. With the main stage at the Fringe Hub in North Melbourne, and a 100-plus venues spread across town, the festival promises to deliver as many as 325 shows this year.

This year, Melbourne Fringe Festival has categorized its shows and performances to 11 categories in its effort to cater to everyone’s interest. For the live performance avid fans, there is a variety in the category of performance, cabaret, comedy, dance and music.
