About White Night Melbourne

After captivating audiences in 2013, White Night Melbourne is back.

In its 2013 debut, White Night Melbourne attracted more than 300,000 people. Commencing at 7pm on Saturday 22 February 2014, Melbourne’s city streets, laneways, landmarks and cultural institutions will once again be transformed into a cultural playground from dusk-till-dawn.

With an expanded event landscape, White Night Melbourne 2014 will offer a mix of free and ticketed entertainment for families to urbanites and everyone in-between. Over 12 hours, in venues and major cultural institutions right across the city centre, visitors can participate in an urban adventure of exhibitions, street performances, fashion, lighting installations, film screenings, multimedia projections, concerts, dance and interactive events.

Inspired by Paris’ Nuit Blanche, the international network of White Night programmes has grown to over 20 cities globally and Melbourne’s own unique interpretation of this worldwide phenomenon will capture your imagination. Join in the celebration of our city’s passions – music, art, food, theatre, sport, fashion, film, design and performance. A terrific addition to Victoria’s Major Events Strategy, White Night Melbourne was created, and is proudly supported, by the State Government of Victoria.

Come discover or rediscover Melbourne, expect the unexpected and enjoy a night like no other.
