MUF - Inspiring Artists, Fantastic Fun, Great Workshops & More!
The Melbourne Ukulele Festival (MUF) - Australia's first, international ukulele festival was established in 2010. Since then, MUF has become a musical institution. Workshops, performances, local and international acts and experts, as well as a musicians marketplace - we even host the inimitable Pimp my MUF - a showcase of custom painted and decorated ukes.
MUF is an annual event proudly presented by a dedicated group of uke enthusiasts and performers. MUF gathers the ukulele tribe from all over Australia and the world gathering in Melbourne to share their love of ukulele - the small but mighty instrument. All are welcome to our festival and we encourage new visitors to come and take a look.
In 2020, the new festival committee are working hard to reimagine the festival, to draw on the legacy of the past, and continue to build the institution that MUF has become.
SNAJ was formed in 2017 by tenor saxophonist Omid Shayan with the goal of exploring complex rhythms and twisting melodies while still remaining funky and accessible. Featuring Ben Hansen on drums and Paul Maz on electric bass, the trio will challenge and excite with two sets of tunes that will make you both stroke your chin and tap your feet.
