Melbourne Podcast Festival
Catch live-recorded shows from over 25 of the country's most-loved podcasts.
If you're looking for some fresh Aussie-made material to add to your podcast library, you and your earholes are in for a treat this winter. From Friday, July 30–Sunday, August 1, Village Cinemas Jam Factory is set to play host to the inaugural Melbourne Podcast Festival.
Across three days, the festival will dish up live-recorded content from over 25 of the country's hottest podcasts, spanning genres from true crime to comedy. Sink your teeth into some classic sports banter, devour some tasty food podcasts, or geek out listening to science-fun facts.
The festival's live podcast program will feature a cast of familiar favourites including The Chaser Report with Dom Knight and Charles Firth, leading news podcast 7AM, the sports-obsessed AFL Exchange, Australian True Crime with Meshel Laurie and Emily Webb, and science-meets-comedy show The Pop Test. Expect chuckles aplenty sitting in on the likes of The Junkees and Somehow Related, bust some LGBTQI stereotypes with Triple Bi-Pass and join Abbie Chatfield for some real talk on her podcast It's A Lot.
Tickets for live sessions vary, though most clock in around $30. Frontier members can score pre-sale tickets from 1pm this Thursday, June 17, with general public access on sale from Monday, June 21.
