We’re rolling out the red carpet to welcome you to the talent competition as our M.A.D. FLAVOURS V.I.P. Guests! Upon arrival, make sure you get yourself a lil’ somethin’-somethin’ to sip on from the bar while you vibe out and enjoy the M.A.D. FLAVOURS red carpet experience. Our professional photographers will be available to take as many red carpet shots as you want.


The main course will comprise of 10 Finalists who will be selected through an audition process to compete at the inaugural M.A.D. FLAVOURS Competition on Saturday night, 5 May 2018 at Deakin Edge, Federation Square.

The winner will walk away with 30 hundred dollar bills ($AUD 3,000) on the night and a host of other prizes.


The judging panel for the M.A. D. FLAVOURS Competition will consist of 4 entertainment industry professionals we like to refer to as The Chefs.


Melburnians with M.A.D. OPINIONS and good taste we’re talking to you. Our audience, a.k.a. The Taste Makers, will help the Judges throughout the evening to determine who walks away with The Bag (prizes) and the title of M.A.D. FLAVOURS’ FIRST CHAMPION/S ! The MC will test the Melburnian Taste Makers to assess whether they are feeling the vibe for each act.  So if you make it to the top 10 as a finalist, make sure you bring your crew to hold you down.


The criteria The Chefs will be looking for:

  • Creativity – Does the act stand out and why is their M.A.D. FLAVOUR better than the rest?
  • Originality – Got FLAVOUR? What’s Your Recipe? If so, show us!
  • Presentation – It’s Melbourne, so dress EXTRA – Each act should show The Chefs that they understand their brand, style and present themselves accordingly!
  • Artistic Talent – Self-explanatory.
  • Use of Stage – Each act should keep the The Chefs engaged by making good/clever use of the stage space!
  • Crowd Engagement – At the end of the day, it all comes down to good taste, and the Melburnian Taste Makers know what’s good and they’ll let you know on the night!
