For a Lunar New Year celebration that's a little less conventional, head to Melbourne Museum on Friday, February 7. Nocturnal and Midsumma are joining forces for a rollicking Lunar New Year Disco, which'll see the after-dark museum party and Melbourne's legendary LGBTQIA+ cultural festival host a show-stopping queer street dance battle

Here, you'll catch colourful contestants duelling it out with their best waacking and punking moves in homage to LA's 1970s gay disco era. Thailand's Pangina Heals (Drag Race Thailand) and Taiwan's Chrissy Chou play the role of guest judges for the two tournaments, which'll both be set to hard-hitting disco beats courtesy of Hope St Radio. Guests are invited to don their best disco finery for the occasion.

As always, Nocturnal's rounding out the evening with dazzling performances, roving entertainment, pop-up bars and expert talks, as the museum shows off its slightly darker, after-hours side.
