Everything You Need To Know About White Night

One of Ballarat’s biggest parties in years is just hours away.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to flood the city on Saturday night for White Night, with the streets and venues of Ballarat set to be transformed through illuminations, projections, music, and interactive works.

It is the fourth time the free event has been held in Ballarat, but the first time since 2019.

It will take place from 6pm to midnight on Saturday 1 June.

Based on previous White Nights in Ballarat, it is expected to generate between $3 million and $5 million for the Ballarat economy.

The Program

Artistic Director and Creative Producer Andrew Walsh AM of renowned major events organisation Accolade.Event Management, has compiled a brilliant display that is certain to light up the city in dazzling fashion.

Laser beams, breathtaking projections, an array of live music, interactive works; the one-night-only event is something not to be missed.

White Night Ballarat will feature almost 40 projections and more than 100 artists and performers, many of which are from Ballarat and surrounds.

Featured local artists during White Night include the late Josh Muir, whose work ‘Still Here’ will be projected across Sturt Street, while a series of joyful projections by local artist Deborah Klein and the sublime work ‘Slow Curtain’ by renowned photographer Lisa Walker will also be on show for all to see.

The Ballarat flavour won’t be lost when it comes to live music either, with Ballarat’s own Yacht Club DJs, Sami and Lashes among the line-up of more than 20 artists split over three stages.
