Inspired by Paris’ Nuit Blanche and the international network of White Night programmes around the world, White Night Melbourne, Australia’s most celebrated cultural event will return for one night only on Saturday 18 February 2017.
White Night Melbourne 2017 will offer a mix of free and ticketed entertainment over 12 hours and feature local, national and international artists and works from Australia, France, Canada, Greece, Portugal, India and the United Kingdom.
The event runs from 7pm to 7am, and visitors will be able to experience the visual art, exhibitions, spectacular illuminations, music, theatre, special dining experiences, film, design and performances on display in venues and major cultural institutions right across the city centre.
In previous years, peak attendance periods have been experienced between 9pm through to approximately 11.30pm, with generally smaller crowds after midnight. Previous attendees have created their own experience – arriving later to enjoy the programme at a less crowded tim, or by booking dinner at a city restaurant before heading out to the event afterward.
A terrific addition to Victoria’s Major Events Strategy, White Night Melbourne was created, and is proudly supported, by the State Government of Victoria.
