Time Out Melbourne

White Night Melbourne is coming back in 2016 to put on the biggest all-night the whole city can join in on. On February 20, the free, 12-hour party will pull out all the stops with visual art, projections, music, food, theatre, film, design and performances set to bring the city to life from 7pm until 7am. 

Callouts for expressions of interest have started and artists, bands, performers, businesses and organisations interested in being involved are invited to throw their hat in the ring for a chance to be featured among the best local and international creatives in 2016 White Night line-up.

White Night Melbourne is a chance for city dwellers to see their beloved city in a whole new way. The city's streets, laneways, and shopfronts are going to be lit up with projections, lights and artworks, and the streets will come alive with live performances. Once again, crowning cultural jewels – including the NGV International, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) and the Arts Centre – will open their doors all night to offer special events.
