24 Festival in Werribee
Whether you want to drop-in and drop-out, or stick around for the whole event, you’ll be sure to find intriguing experiences at 24. From dusk, there will be a line-up of live music and dance on the Riverside Stage. Listen to a wide range of genres, like hip hop, RnB, indie rock and contemporary Arabic music.
Watch an old car transform into a vibrant neon artwork with a live action painting project and listen to tunes from a creature that’s part insect, part robot and part DJ booth on wheels.
When darkness falls, the park will light up with the glow of 400 illuminated flowers in bloom, as well as other ambient experiences. Dance through the night at the Silent Disco, play neon tennis and help create a woven labyrinth in Archi-Loom.
Throughout the event, feel enchanted by roving performers, like Illuminated Angels, giant dragonflies and more.
Welcome dawn and a new day with Indian classical music and yoga. After that, take part in a paper plane competition.
Throughout the whole event, you can kick back and relax with the 24 Hour Outdoor Cinema. Playing on the theme of time, you can expect films like Back to the Future and Groundhog Day. Headphones will be provided.
This event is free to attend, and you’re welcome to bring a picnic. There will also be a range of food trucks on-site. Otherwise, stroll a short walk away and grab a bite to eat from a nearby restaurant.
