RISING is a surge of art, performance, music and ceremony in the heart of Melbourne
RISING, Melbourne's new festival of the night, is a major cultural event for the Asia Pacific Region created by a diverse team of local, national and international artists and curators.
RISING will begin on the evening of the total lunar eclipse in May 2021. Interlocking circles of experience and connection will radiate through the night, as the city re-synchronises and is re-energised with public art, performance and music spanning the emerging and iconic, the epic and intimate.
The inaugural festival will take place 26 May – 6 June 2021.
