  • RISING

Surely every corner of the city this winter season will be ‘instagrammable’. Sidney Myer Music Bowl will be transformed with lights, music, and ice-skating rink.

Add to your bucket list this festival that was three years in the making – RISING. RISING will immerse you imagination and senses as they bring The Wilds. 

“The Wilds is our moonlit forest of stimulation—a fluoro fantasy of art, sound, taste, and ice. At a transformed Sidney Myer Music Bowl, you’ll encounter voluminous inflatable sculptures, towering projections, and mind-expanding soundscapes in previously inaccessible areas of the iconic venue.”

The Wilds will run from 1 June – 19 June. Open from 5pm – 9pm every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday. 5pm – 10pm every Friday to Saturday.

Tickets are from $12-$22. Purchase tickets here – https://tickets.rising.melbourne/the-wilds

Food

  • Donut Festival

Let’s break your usual market shopping routine every weekend by inviting you to drop by at the Donut Festival at Queen Victoria Market, happening only from 4 June – 5 June from 9am to 4pm. 

Go to RK – RL SHED and find your favourite market traders like Jamm’d Dessert Bar, Short Stop Melbourne, American Doughnut Kitchen, Churro Kitchen, St Gerry’s, OMG Decadent Donuts, Pasta Face and Cafe Verona.

Grab a coffee too to complete your good morning start. Mmmmmm… Yummy! There’s always room for dessert, hey?
