The MUST Container Festival



The 2014 Container Festival is a bold enterprise from MUST—a dynamic multiartform, multi-venue arts festival coming to Monash Clayton this August!


August 1-16

Last year’s inaugural festival was an enormous success; incorporating over 200 performances and events from 240 artists, and attracting more than 2200 audience members. This year it’s set to be even bigger and bolshier!

Shipping containers set up as performance venues, a vibrant “Hub” and lounge bar located in the MUST theatre, “miniMUST” and other surprising spaces will be filled with innovative new work of all shapes and sizes. You’ll experience music, dance, theatre, visual art, games, burlesque, interactive performances, poetry, puppetry, talks, exhibitions and more!

The Container Festival will provide an engine room and a showcase for groundbreaking work of all genres. It will ignite cultural engagement and expression, foster innovation and provide you with brilliant, affordable entertainment.

The festival launches Friday, 1 August in the Hub from 6pm ‘til late with free entry. Featuring an impressive line-up of festival artists, guests will get a sneak preview of the diverse work on offer, meet the artists, and enjoy a sensational party! Festival passes, day passes and one-off ticket options are available, as well as lots of free events.

Monash—the place to experience art and entertainment this August!


Proudly sponsored by the Office of the Vice-Chancellor and President.
