Time Out Melbourne

Long weekends are for relaxing, recharging and raving


Good Friday Eve Late Night '90s Party
From midnight, get your grunge, Britpop and alt rock on at Ding Dong Lounge as DJs create heavy waves of nostalgia until the small hours. Cheap drinks, $5 entry, can't lose.

Good Friday Eve at Revolver
Party crews 3181 Thursdays and Soul System join forces at Melbourne’s favourite late night dance cave on Good Friday Eve. The lineup includes Sam Gudge, Butters, Jesse Young and James Steeth, to name a few.

Good Friday Eve Big Dancing
Overdose on hip-hop at Laundry’s Good Friday Eve bash. You’re in expert hands with Yo! Mafia (who stepped up as DJ for New Orleans bounce queen Big Freedia on her 2014 tour), Larrie and MIMI. Oh, and it’s free.


Almost like a mini-Meredith, this open-air festival at Bruzzy's Farm is all about rocking out during the day and dancing all night. Melbourne disco lord Andee Frost lays down the closing set every year.

Darkbeat and Fünf present: Fritz Kalkbrenner
Watch giants collide in an epic 18-hour rave across Brown Alley and La Di Da from afternoon until morning, led by a house-meets-soul set from Berlin producer Fritz Kalkbrenner.


Elizabeth Rose
To celebrate her latest single 'Another Earth', Sydney singer/songwriter and DJ Elizabeth Rose is hitting the decks at Boney on Easter Saturday, with support from Rat & Co and Friendships.

Banoffee and KLO
The two Melbourne ladies, creators of the kind of ethereal electro-pop that makes you want to close your eyes and dance, join forces for one night only at Howler, playing new stuff and old favourites. 


Espionage Easter Sunday at Howler
The unstoppable Operatives posse take over Howler on Easter Sunday with a feast of Melbourne dance music-makers. Billy Hoyle spins smooth hip-hop beats, plus there's the strange and wonderful Kirkis.

Party crew Trust take over all three rooms of New Guernica on Easter Sunday. Headlining is local tech-house duo Thankyou City, as well as Timmus, Silversix, MoodMachine and more.
