About the festival

Hi there! I'm Michael MacManus, director of the Melbourne Guitar Festival!  

I can't wait to share this year's festival with you! From a concert of traditional South African Kora music by the amazing Derek Gripper, through to Radiohead arrangements by Codex Guitar Quartet, with breath-taking classical guitar soloists Campbell Diamond, Matt Withers, Gian Marco Ciampa (our 2018 ICAC winner) and Harold Gretton, and a French inspired program by the Melbourne Guitar Quartet, this 5th Melbourne Guitar Festival will be one to remember!  

Throw into the mix some amazing guitar displays, a $20,000 performance competition, masterclasses, presentations and complimentary catering at our evening concerts, the vibe and quality of performance at our festival is unparalleled!  

Our full schedule including the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced performance competition, masterclasses, guitar displays and presentations/talks will be released later.  

A festival pass includes entry to all 9 performance events at our festival, competition and masterclass viewing, guitar displays, and complimentary catering at our evening concerts.
