FED SQUARE - STARRING THE FAMOUS SPIEGELTENT & ACMI

Yep, we're bringing the world's best comedy/cabaret/music venue, The Famous Spiegeltent, back to Melbourne, to the audience who loves her best! Right smack bang in the centre of Fed Square.
The Famous Spiegeltent will host Sam Simmons, Ali McGregor, EastEnd Cabaret, Axis of Awesome and Marty Putz, not to mention a full program of daytime comedy for the kids. The legendary late, live and luscious Club Spiegel will present a series of concerts and dancehall shenanigans throughout the Festival. Get down again, again and again!

We are also excited to announce that we are partnering with another iconic Melbourne institution to create a cosy comedy venue right inside ACMI! Festival faves Adam Rozenbachs, Felicity Ward, Damian Callinan and The Bitches' Box (NZ) will be performing at ACMI.
"Fed Square is delighted to welcome the Famous Spiegeltent to the heart of our city during the 2014 Comedy Festival. This adds yet another layer in a most exciting year for the Square where we will be welcoming international artists, major world sporting events and our many and varied local communities to enjoy all the precinct continues to bring to Melbourne."
