Nocturnal Friday 1 September: featuring Kllo, Planéte and Pjenné

Melbourne's biggest indoor festival Nocturnal shakes off winter and jumps into spring with a killer September line-up featuring live music from local electronic artists Kllo, Planéte and Pjenné.

As well as access to our permanent galleries, this September we’re taking it one step further delving into the world of insects via Bug Lab: Little Bugs, Super Powers, a touring exhibition brought to you by New Zealand’s Te Papa and Weta Workshop. Experience this immersive and interactive exhibition for only $10 at Nocturnal!

Museums Victoria's Conservators, Curators and Collection Store Managers are also getting on board for September’s event with special Melbourne Fashion Week themed pop-up talks and back of house collections displays.
