Illuminate the River, the free and all-ages music festival featuring Something for Kate, Baker Boy, Art vs. ScienceMontaigneMia WrayTeeny Tiny Stevies and many more lands this weekend, and ahead of the day, the festival has unveiled set times and a fundraising initiative for flood-affected residents.

Presented by City of Moonee Valley and On The Road Again and held on Saturday 19 November at The Boulevard in Aberfeldie from 12pm – 9pm, the day’s activities include three stages of live music, carnival rides, kids’ activities, a box wars workshop and more.

A full list of set times can be downloaded HERE or are located below.

Given the festival’s proximity to the flood zones on the Maribyrnong River, all water-based activities at the event, including the anticipated laser show and inflatable regatta, have been cancelled.

Instead, the festival is encouraging patrons to dig deep and support members of their community affected by the recent floods, and the organisations that help them.

Fundraising QR codes will be situated throughout the site on the day, which the public can scan to donate to GIVIT, the Essendon SES or both.

Volunteers in the Essendon SES Unit have been protecting Moonee Valley and surrounding communities since 1981. Most recently they coordinated the evacuation and rescue of residents when the Maribyrnong River flooded.

GIVIT has been helping those impacted by the recent floods directly. This organisation matches donors directly to those in need or uses 100% of donated funds to purchase items that are requested by those who need them.

Produced by the City of Moonee Valley and presented by On The Road Again, a Victorian Government initiative bringing live music back across the state, Illuminate the River 2022 will be held on Saturday 19 November from 12pm – 9pm in the Boulevard in Aberfeldie, and is a free, family-friendly and all-ages event.

Attendees are encouraged to walk, cycle or catch public transport to the event.
