If you're an arts-lover, an adventure-seeker or constantly on the hunt for new experiences, then October is one of the most exciting months to be in Melbourne. The Melbourne Festival (Oct 4-22, 2017) is a feast of world-class dance, theatre, music, visual arts and outdoor events, offering everything from a stunning modern ballet with music composed by Jamie xx to an epic journey through centuries of pop music, performed over 24 hours. 

While you're planning your perfect Melbourne Festival, it pays to take advantage of the Festival Feasts program: a smorgasbord of special offers and express meals available to festival-goers. Deals range from complimentary cocktails to four-course feasts for $45, and all you have to do is show your ticket on arrival. The full list of feasts is below.
