The Melbourne Ukulele Festival!!!!!!!!!

February 26th – March 2nd 2010

From the Melbourne Ukulele Kollective Website:

Yes! It’s finally here!

The inaugural Melbourne Ukulele Festival will feature ukulele performers from around the country and special international guests. Be part of history!

Produced by the Melbourne Ukulele Kollective, the MUF promises to be everything Australian ukers have been waiting for. Ukulele virtuosos and thundering, unruly “uke mobs” will join together in five heady days of ukulele abandon! Members of the many ukulele groups that have sprung up all across the nation will descend on Melbourne for the greatest gathering of the ukulele clans ever seen in this country.
