Unite with hundreds of music-lovers in St Paul’s Cathedral for a communal outpouring of song led by SHOUSE—Melbourne’s world-wide party-starters.

Communitas is a mass-musicking event for all. Led by Melbourne dance-floor mavericks, SHOUSE, it’s a rapturous coming together: many people, many voices, many hands, making spontaneous music. There’s no audience, no auditions. Everyone’s in the band—including you.

SHOUSE’s ‘Love Tonight’ was the kind of sleeper hit artists dream of. A club anthem, borne from ecstatic jams in a Brunswick warehouse that was given a second life on the top of the international charts—amplified via European dance floors in 2020, as people shook out months of isolation. Today it’s tracking over a billion streams and counting.

Now they’re taking that energy into Communitas. Bringing the city together beneath the vaulting ceilings of St Paul’s Cathedral. A chance to find new friendships and strengthen old ones, through collective music-making.

Communitas—a second coming of community.

Join the bandwagon
