Sydney is getting a pop-up Melbourne music festival, for obvious reasons

Bands like Midnight Juggernauts and Totally Mild are hitting up Sydney for the Melbourne After Dark festival.

The Melbourne After Dark festival will be transforming Sydney's King’s Cross Hotel into a famous Melbourne laneway for one night only. The festival will feature renowned Melbourne artists and food vendors that will enhance Sydney’s brief transformation into the world’s most liveable city.

Headline acts include Remi, Midnight Juggernauts, Totally Mild, Saskwatch, The Delta Riggs, and The Harpoons, while comedian Joel Creasey MC’s the night and RRR radio take over the airwaves.

The five levels of the hotel will represent a different Melbourne landmark or precinct to showcase the best our city has to offer.

The event will run all night over a total of 15 Melb-tastic hours. Fuel will be provided in the form of food from iconic restaurants like Coda, Tonka, Huxtaburger and Fancy Hanks, and of course, there’ll plenty of barista-made coffee, just as Melbournians like it. 

Entry is free, but you’ll have to register your attendance on the event website.

Melbourne After Dark takes place on November 25 at the Kings Cross Hotel in Potts Point, NSW. Entry is free, but you must register at visitmelbourne.com/afterdark
