The Famous Spiegeltent

Presented by AAMI

We first introduced Melbourne to The Famous Spiegeltent in 2001, and what followed was an affair that bordered on the obsessive. For nearly a decade the Spiegeltent was a fixture of this city’s festival, and its eventual departure left countless ardent admirers pining for more. So here you go.

Step inside the intimate interior to experience award winning gig theatre (What Girls Are Made Of), a cavalcade of gender diverse legends (Gender Euphoria) and a modern-day marvel (Wonders).

Within the most beautiful of the ‘mirror tents’ still surviving since their heyday in the 1920s and 30s, join us for experiences like no other. And the best bit: we’re also open for free and up late, bringing you within breathing distance of some of the most exciting artists of our city (Mirror on Melbourne).
