Reimagined White Night expands Across Melbourne and regional cities

Victoria’s annual White Night will return to Melbourne across three nights in August.

Carlton Gardens, Birrarung Marr and the National Gallery of Victoria will come to life with live performance, installation and projection across the festival’s return from 22-24 August.

The National Gallery of Victoria, State Library Victoria, Arts Centre Melbourne and Melbourne Museum will present exclusive experiences over the weekend, alongside a culinary offering that showcases Victorian produce.

White Night will also continue in Ballarat, Bendigo and Geelong, with the hosting role shared across the regional cities over the next three years. The festival will return to Ballarat in 2019, Bendigo in 2020 and Geelong in 2021.

“White Night in 2019 is going to be reimagined and my creative team and I are elated and energised by the new undertaking presented to us,” said White Night artistic director David Atkins. “For the first time in its seven-year history, White Night will span three consecutive nights and three distinct precincts.”
