26 May 2021 to 6 Jun 2021 Annual Event

RISING is a surge of art, music, performance and ceremony in the heart of Melbourne. 

Ambitious in scale and impact, RISING will begin on the evening of the total lunar eclipse in May 2021. Over 12 nights, festivity and late-night culture will intersect with huge moments spanning the emerging and iconic, the epic and intimate.

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. 

The inaugural festival will take place 26 May – 6 June 2021.
