MOMO is a type of South Asian dumpling; native to Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim state and Darjeeling district of India. It is similar to Chinese baozi and jiaozi, Mongolian buuz, Japanese gyoza and Korean mandu.

The Velodrome will encompass over 20 unique Dumpling marquees boasting different Momo styles, wrapping techniques, recipes and flavours.

With entertainment over two stages, you can expect a full spectrum of the most unique eastern influenced entertainment and urban grooves our city has to offer. Under a rainbow sky of colour, the aroma of dumplings and the hustle and bustle of food trucks, M Festival is the ultimate love letter goodbye to another lazy Melbourne summer.
