The CBD will again be illuminated as White Night Melbourne returns for a bigger and brighter night on February 17.
Now in its sixth year, White Night celebrates Melbourne’s night culture with 12 hours of art installations, performances, projections, music and exhibitions from 7pm to 7am.
One of this year’s CBD highlights is Liquid Sky, a 150 metre silver holographic “skynet” hanging above Federation Square.
Los Angeles artist Patrick Shearn designed this kinetic installation specifically for Federation Square to reflect dynamic nature.
CBD buildings such as RMIT’s Building 1, State Library, ACMI and buildings along the east end of Flinders St will be canvases for themed light projections.
Projections on the Royal Exhibition Building will bring architecture to life and transform the audience to another dimension.
Snows will fall down on Little Bourke St and music performances will take place on verandas and balconies along Swanston St.
“White Night is a massive activation of the CBD and surrounding areas. It encourages around 600,000 people to come to the city and experience what Melbourne has to offer at night,” artistic director David Atkins said.
