Melbourne Museum's after-hours party returns next month, with an especially jazzy lineup in tow. Coinciding with the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Nocturnal will showcase some of the country's best-loved musical talent, for its next adults-only celebration on Friday, June 7.

Hitting the stage — or the museum — are New Orleans-inspired seven-piece Horns of Leroy featuring vocals from songstress Thando, along with local ensemble Jazz Party and improvising pop and soul powerhouse Tanya George.

As always, the night's musical offerings will be backed by a program of guest talks and late-night museum wanderings. Catch a free session led by international music legend Don Was, dive into the late 60s with a jaunt through new exhibition Revolutions: Records and Rebels and join resident museum experts Deborah Tout-Smith and Hannah Perkins for a close-up glimpse at some covetable pieces from the jazz age and beyond. Sticking to the theme, a pop-up hair salon will also be styling beehives and The Beatles-inspired mop tops throughout the night.

There'll also be pop-up bars throughout the museum, so you can explore with a cocktail in hand.

Nocturnal x Melbourne International Jazz Festival runs from 7–11pm.
