RISING Festival Melbourne 2021
Taking the place of the Melbourne International Arts Festival and White Night Melbourne, RISING Festival Melbourne 2021 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 art, performance and music spanning the emerging and iconic, the epic and intimate.
The inaugural RISING festival will take place 26 May – 6 June 2021.
