Mecha is a new and unique arts festival showcasing the best of robotic and mechanical sculpture, performance art, sound, and video art – a home for hybrid and experimental artforms.

19th of January 2019 will be the beginning of the journey: a small one day/night pilot festival, to test the waters, trial ideas, with room to grow in future in an organic and practical way.

The works on show will be experimental, weird, beautiful and captivating. Sitting somewhere between the traditional worlds of galleries, theatres, and festivals, these forms will be presented together as a unique grouping not often seen in Australia’s arts landscape.

An artist run festival, Mecha places experimental arts front and centre, and puts artists first, with profit from the festival going directly to the artists thereby directly benefiting from its success. More artists will be announced soon!

Conceived and driven by regional Victoria based experimental artist duo Cake Industries, Mecha is focused on bringing experimental arts out of the cities and growing this unique scene in Australia along with an audience.

A bar will be operating on site, as well as camping facilities for those who wish to stay from far and wide under the bright stars afforded by the regional location.

Embracing diversity and inclusivity, we invite everyone from all walks of life to come and experience, interact, and play in an abstract, absurd and surreal world together with us.
