Light up and shine this New Year’s Eve with a colourful spectacle at Fed Square.
African beats, samba dance, circus acts and neon lights, Fed Square’s free New Year’s Eve celebrations will be a party to remember. Reflecting the rich cultural diversity of Melbourne, The Square will illuminate in a kaleidoscope of colour and so will you! Wear your brightest colours or crystal whites so you illuminate under a canopy of ultraviolet lights installed exclusively for the celebration.
Experience the big beats of Lamine Sonko and The African Intelligence as they guide you through easy dance steps that, on the stroke of midnight, will coalesce in an en-masse dance to their popular track, Light and Shine.
The entertainment lineup, curated by Multicultural Arts Victoria, also includes Sounds of Polynesia, Marawa the Amazing, Ethiopian Circus Trio, Neda and the Neon Rhythm Myth Masters, Wassawumba and Congo Tardis #1.
