About the Festival:

Held from 24 August to 2 September, the 2018 Melbourne Writers Festival is a bookish arts party that will bring the City of Literature to life.

For more than three decades, Melbourne Writers Festival has been bringing together the best writers, thinkers and performers from Australia and around the world to revel in the power of words to unite and inspire us. 

The Festival includes events for people of all ages and more than a quarter of the program is free. Our highly regarded Schools’ Program is Australia’s biggest literary festival for students, with 15,000 attendees each year.

Ratings and Reviews


No exchange function

Although the app states you can return/exchange tickets, the MWF does not actually allow this. If it’s physically possible- as it is with say MIFF, I don’t see why they don’t let you do this. Pretty disappointed after spending money on the pass, thinking this was an option.


Easy to use

This is a nice, clean app, easy to use. Love the ability to buy e-tickets that are stored on the phone and scanned on location.
I miss the ability to sync with my calendar (Sydney Writers Festival app does this). Also, there should be an iPad version.


Great app

This app offers a great way to explore the 400+ events at the Melbourne Writers Festival. Buying tickets is quick and easy, plus it can lets you keep scannable tickets on your phone.
