2022 MUST CabFest

The biggest artistic festival at Monash is back on campus, with dynamic performances, hilarious comedy, soulful music, rocking bands, burlesque, drag, circus, and more!

Along with our usual jam-packed Variety Nights, our much-loved specialty nights Music Night and Queer Night return in 2022, with the addition of a special Intercultural Celebration Night and a dedicated sensory friendly night.

The seventh year of the Monash Uni Student Theatre Cabaret Festival continues to offer a brilliant opportunity for performers from diverse backgrounds to entertain, entice and showcase their talents across a curated two-week season. It’s a place where both newbies and seasoned performers share a stage to create a fun, inclusive and lively festival.

Bring on your excitement, put on your fun pants, hype up and get ready to boogie!
