A long, hot, Melbourne summer deserves a proper Melbourne send-off, and how better to do that, than with a series of free music events?
To squeeze a little extra goodness out of the sunny season, the folks at Rosé Rosé are set to host a three-week boutique music series called Wine Not?, complete with an all-Aussie lineup of wines, beers, cocktails and top DJs.
Held in conjunction with the Arts Centre's new exhibition The Australian Music Vault, the event will take over the centre's ground floor al fresco space, The Barre on Friday and Saturday nights from March 9.
WAT Artists has pulled together a banging musical lineup for the occasion, with the likes of Harvey Sutherland, Oscar Key Sung, Andras, Fantastic Man and Nite Fleit promising to have punters dancing their way through March.
Alongside the tunes, expect a carefully curated, locally focused bar offering, with cocktails from Melbourne Martini, brews from Grand Ridge and Rosé Rosé's own lightly sparkling rosé cans.
There'll also be a rose-themed light show, a lounge area for chilling out under the stars, and easy access to The Australian Music Vault, for when those DJ tunes inspire you to dig a little deeper into the Aussie music story.
Wine Not? will run from 5–11pm on March 9, 10, 16, 17, 23 and 24.
