RISING is Melbourne’s major festival of the night — a surge of art, music and ceremony in the heart of Melbourne.

Ambitious in scale and impact, RISING will take the place of Melbourne International Arts Festival and White Night Melbourne under the full moon in May 2021. Over 12 nights, festivity, civic ceremony and late-night culture will intersect with huge moments in performance, participatory public art, music and food.

From a program of free and ticketed events, interlocking circles of experience and connection will reverberate through the city’s laneways, venues and public spaces. RISING is a bold, provocative, illuminating expression of Melbourne now.
