Melbourne Museum and Music Cities Convention presents a special one-off Nocturnal on Thursday 19 April featuring the fiery Ecca Vandal, hip-hop powerhouse Birdz and DJ Joey Lightbulb spinning an ode to Melbourne. With one-on-one access to Museums Victoria experts and collection curiosities, Nocturnal guests are also invited to explore music behind-the-scenes with curators, displays and exhibitions all accessible throughout the evening. Since 2015, Music Cities Conventions have encouraged the best in music practices and new ways of thinking across education, employment, urban planning, licensing and regulation. Past events have been held in Brighton (UK), Washington, Memphis and Berlin, and for the first time in the southern hemisphere, now Melbourne. It is a huge coup and cements Melbourne's status as the live music capital of the world.
