Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Emerge celebrates Melbourne's multicultural blend of music and arts. Kicking off with Emerge in the West, a one-day musical extravaganza spread throughout Fitzroy, the festival covers over two months of entertainment, culminating in the Emerge Main Event at Fitzroy Town Hall.

The festival neatly coincides with National Refugee Week, so show your support at the World Refugee Day Rally. You can immerse yourself in the infectious beats of Sudanese performers or partake in the traditional coffee ceremonies of Ethiopia.
