The highlights

See your city in a completely different light this summer

The roll call of sites that this year's route takes in is huge, with almost every landmark in Melbourne part of the event, including:

  • Luna Park
  • Melbourne Zoo
  • Docklands
  • MCG and Melbourne Park
  • Melbourne Museum and Royal Exhibition building
  • The Shrine
  • Yarra and Maribyrnong rivers

The start line festival will kick off at 9:00pm, so get your face painted, grab a bite to eat, kick back and enjoy the atmosphere. We've also transformed some of our favourite Melbourne spots along the way, so you'll never know what surprises and delights might be around the corner. To give you a sneak peek and get you in the mood we've picked a few of our favourites from this year's lineup:

Edward Quinn

One half of Melbourne duo Slum Sociable, Edward Quinn will keep the tunes flowing as you prepare to Ride the Night.


Hula hoop workshops – Where's My Unicorn

Remember your younger days and the joy of picking up a hula hoop? Yes, it's still that much fun. Head to the start line festival from 9:00pm to combine fun and fitness in one of our energetic workshops. IMG_3890-square (1)


Chloë Violette

Chloë Violette

Chloë Violette is a Melbourne based singer/songwriter. Her blend of folk, acoustic and indie-pop is achingly beautiful, hypnotic and raw.

Through her music, Chloë hopes to inspire others to seek out the ethereal beauty of Mother Nature… the flicker of a campfire on a summer evening, fireflies floating through the night sky, dandelions dancing in the wind, and above all else, gypsy girls who live their lives exactly as they please.

Sunrise Yoga

The perfect way to end your Ride the Night experience is to join us for a sunrise yoga class overlooking Albert Park lake at the event village. Clear your mind, stretch your muscles and reflect on the night. Classes will run from 2:00am to 6:00am.
