M.A.D. FLAVOURS Competition Show Down – Once You’ve Had A Taste Of The Good Stuff, You Won’t Go Back!

Join us for a night full of MUSIC, ART, DANCE & A GANGSTALICIOUS AFTER PARTY!

M.A.D. FLAVOURS is a talent competition curated to showcase Melbourne’s emerging talent on a world class stage. The overall objective is to invest in the development of Victoria’s artists through exposure to the entertainment industry.

Melbourne is celebrated worldwide for being a city which has embraced and nurtured some of the most vibrant, innovative, creative, exciting, diverse and genre-bending music, arts and dance scenes across all cultures, backgrounds and ages.

This year, we’ve collaborated with our friends from the City of Melbourne & Federation Square to bring you the inaugural MUSIC, ARTS & DANCE (M.A.D.) FLAVOURS Competition.  It’s fresh, it’s new and we want to give Melbourne’s emerging artists the platform to do what they do best.

If they impress the Judges (a.k.a The Chefs) and our audience (YOU!), the winner will walk away with 30 hundred dollar bills ($AUD 3,000) on the night and a host of other prizes.

THE CHEFS

THE TASTE MAKERS

Melburnians with M.A.D. OPINIONS and good taste we’re talking to you. Our audience, a.k.a. The Taste Makers, will help the Judges throughout the evening to determine who walks away with The Bag (prizes) and the title of M.A.D. FLAVOURS’ FIRST CHAMPION/S ! The MC will test the Melburnian Taste Makers to assess whether they are feeling the vibe for each act.  So if you make it to the top 10 as a finalist, make sure you bring your crew to hold you down.

THE INGREDIENTS

The criteria The Chefs will be looking for:

  • Creativity – Does the act stand out and why is their M.A.D. FLAVOUR better than the rest?
  • Originality – Got FLAVOUR? What’s Your Recipe? If so, show us!
  • Presentation – It’s Melbourne, so dress EXTRA – Each act should show The Chefs that they understand their brand, style and present themselves accordingly!
  • Artistic Talent – Self-explanatory.
  • Use of Stage – Each act should keep the The Chefs engaged by making good/clever use of the stage space!
  • Crowd Engagement – At the end of the day, it all comes down to good taste, and the Melburnian Taste Makers know what’s good and they’ll let you know on the night!
