White Night Winter Melbourne 2019 & White Night Ballarat 2019

White Night Winter Melbourne - late August 2019

In 2019, White Night will take place in Melbourne for the seventh year. It will mark the first time it takes place in winter and the first time it will take place over three consecutive nights in late August.

White Night Winter Melbourne is the city as you know it, but reimagined and transformed under the ephemeral cloak of night. From dusk, local, national and international artists, musicians and performers will weave a spell over the city in a celebration of art, culture and creativity. From the intimate to the epic, art and performance in all its forms owns the night.

As winter breaks and on the eve of spring we invite you to gather in and around Melbourne’s iconic buildings and cultural institutions, streets, laneways, and parks, in celebration of reclaiming and reimagining the city.

White Night Ballarat - October 2019

For one night in October 2019, White Night will return to Ballarat for the third time. From heritage buildings and streetscapes, to cultural venues and laneways, this regional city will be transformed by creativity, arts and culture once again.

2019 is the spark that will light the flame!
