Time Out Melbourne

This year, Melbourne's clubs are at capacity with huge international and local talent. We doubt the royals have this much fun

Friday

Kölsch
Following a huge, feel-good set at Brown Alley last year, the Danish house maestro will hit the decks again – this time on the eve of his second album 1983, released on the well-respected Kompakt label.

Hot Dub Time Machine
The mother of all time-travelling dance parties returns for a huge national tour, as mashup king DJ Tom Loud takes you through hits from the '50s and beyond. We're not going to tell you what happens when you hit the '90s.

Atlantis
Queen’s Birthday weekend kicks off with a massive bang this year with Atlantis: a trance music feast for the senses. Huge names include the unrivalled German DJ/producer Paul Van Dyk.

Saturday

Fünf presents Around the Way
It's possible that Melbourne has never seen an event quite like this. Touring agency Fünf and men's streetwear fashion label Ystrdaybone have joined forces for a warehouse party that fuses electronic music with visuals.

The Operatives: We are 11
Given that this party collective have nurtured some of the country’s best electronic music for over a decade, you can bank on a killer time at their birthday party. LA producer Jennifer Lee, aka TOKiMONSTA is headlining.

Million Dollar Pony Club at Revolver
From indie electro to future pop, this free mini-festival is back with three hot live local acts. Don’t miss the analogue synth-loving post disco trio Passerine, along with Back Back Forward Punch and Kids at Midnight.

Sunday

Trust feat. Gabby
Touring agency Trust are back to infiltrate New Guernica’s rave cave with an unmissable lineup of underground club stars. Catch Sydney techno and house queen Gabby, along with Revolver Sundays resident Boogs and ubiquitous local Katie Drover (pictured).

Yass Qween
Melbourne’s biggest queer club nights – Closet, Thursgay and Snatch and Grab – have joined forces for one of the biggest disco, hip-hop and house parties of the long weekend. There'll be DJ sets from the Total Giovanni boys (pictured), hip-hop legend Yo! Mafia, Misty Nights, and loads more.
