Here's one for all of you culture-loving night owls — Melbourne Museum's famed after-hours parties are making their anticipated comeback this month, promising a suitably huge headline act in Aussie hip hop star Tkay Maidza. On Wednesday, November 30, Nocturnal returns for its first outing since 2020, set to transform the museum's exhibition spaces into a music-fuelled after-dark playground.

Kicking off a fresh series of monthly summer sessions (further dates TBA), this next after-hours shindig is happening in conjunction with Victoria's statewide music program Always Live, and national hip hop and R&B radio platform CADA.

Gearing up the crowd for a big night of tunes will be acts like Western Sydney DJ Carolina Gasolina, and Melbourne's own Dijok and Soju Gang, before Maidza hits the stage from 9pm, promising to have the dance floor jumping.

And as always, more after-hours revelry will come in the form of pop-up bars, tasty bites, hands-on workshops and curator talks. Plus, guests will have the rare chance to explore Melbourne Museum's latest exhibitions and installations by night — the current lineup includes newly launched exhibition Naadohbii: To Draw Water, interactive storytelling showcase Tyama (separate tickets required), and Triceratops: Fate of the Dinosaurs.
