Keen to get your culture kicks after dark? Want to welcome the weekend with incredible art, live DJ sets, creative workshops and front row-seats to Vivid Sydney? At the Museum of Contemporary Art, you can do all that via its MCA Late program. The best bit? It's free to enter.

MCA Late will take place on Fridays throughout June, with a fresh lineup of acts popping up at the beloved cultural institution. The Sounds on the Terrace music program will take over the rooftop with an impressive lineup of musicians including Handsome, Astronafrica and Narae who'll be bringing blissful beats to the breezy sky-high stage.

It's not just music that you can enjoy — there are workshops, panel discussions and live performances aplenty, too. You can catch a spoken word and musical performance by Ayeesha Ash and a dance performance by Suara Indonesia Dance Group at the venue on June 17. Want to get your hands dirty? Try a clay-based workshop led by Ebony Russell on June 24. Here, you'll use plaster casts to create 3D constructions inspired by Mason Kimber's work in the MCA Collection: Perspectives on place exhibition. Then, you can take home for firing or deconstruct them for future clay exploration. Keen to head along? Make sure you book your tickets to secure your spot.

Love a thought-provoking talk? Join Amy Claire Mills, Sue Jo Wright and Eugenie Lee for an artist panel discussion on June 17 or catch an artist talk with Bonita Ely on June 24.
