Next Wave Festival and the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival

Two diverse but complementary festivals fill May. The next wave festival highlights those who are just beginning or those who are doing something different. Don’t expect the polish of the big headline acts but be open to the new and the different. The human rights art and film festival highlights what many people are still going through in order to enjoy what most Australians believe is normal. Be prepared to have your understanding of what is normal challenged and to come away from each of these events thinking a little differently.


Australians have always liked a drink, and from the 12th to the 20th of May Melbourne showcases all that is new in beer. From food and beer matching to masterclasses in home brewing. Experience the fusion of two of Melbourne’s favourite beverages Beer and Coffee at the Beerspresso 2 Nitro Extravaganza, eight coffee roasters matched with eight brewers to make eight coffee beers. Good Beer Week is an expression of all things beer.
