After Dark

When the sun goes down, the tunes turn up

The After Dark Party in partnership with PBS is like a cool, younger cousin of the festival’s glitzy annual opening night gala. This party will be celebrating the city’s thriving live music scene, and due to popular interest, we have made this entertainment available to all Friday and Saturday evening session attendees!

In spirit of the festival’s new colourful collision of art, entertainment and food, these two balmy December evening sessions will see funk-tronic duo GL and Melbourne’s favourite balladeer Fraser A Gorman entertain festival-goers with an exclusive multi-sensory experience.

This club-like experience will conclude days filled with exciting collaborative culinary events and experiences concocted by Melbourne’s favourite chefs with creative counterparts – from sculptors to illustrators, musicians and graffiti artists.

If you enjoy live music under the stars with great food and festivalgoer friends, then our After Dark Party in the park sessions is just for you! Grab your Taste Pass today for a guaranteed good time.
