Melbourne Music Week is bringing back its 2011 pop-up cube venue as this year's festival hub.
Melbourne Music Week will take over the city from Friday, November 15, to Saturday, November 23 — and, this year's retrospective program is paying tribute to some of the highlights of its first decade. The festival is known for transforming unlikely spaces across the city into rollicking live music venues and, in the ultimate throwback move, MMW will bring back its immersive pop-up venue Kubik as the festival hub.
After first appearing at the 2011 festival, it will this time make its home at Alexandra Gardens, delivering a nightly program of local and international sounds. Designed by Germany's Balestra Berlin, the outdoor structure offers up a feast for the senses, featuring technology that allows it to light up in time with the music.
Headline acts including Melbourne dance legend CC:Disco!, German electronic act Monolake, and French natives Kittin and Raphaël Top-Secret promise to give Kubik a serious workout this year.
