Melbourne is getting a new outdoor pop-up concert venue named Reunion Park. The new pop up live music and performing arts precinct will open at the beginning of March within the city of Yarra’s iconic Burnley Circus Site, only 15 minutes from Melbourne CBD.
The venue will host artists including King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Spacey Jane, Northlane, Wolfmother, BENEE, L.A.B and many more. The pop up will also feature a diverse range of performing arts shows including high flying circus performances, food and drink delights, and a programme of spectacular comedy shows as part of the venue’s Melbourne Comedy Festival hub.
Curated by Untitled Group and Velodrome Events, Reunion Park will be a celebration of Melbourne’s vibrant culture, providing a vital outdoor venue setting for artists and audiences to reunite and enjoy what Melbourne does best — Arts, Music & Culture. Concerts, day festivals and performing arts shows will take place from March 4th – April 10th.
“When we first conceptualised Reunion Park in 2020 we knew it would be a challenge, but did not anticipate nearly 2 years of lockdowns before it would become a reality or prove as crucial an event series for the Australian live entertainment industry. The project could not have happened without the support of the Federal government’s RISE fund, but equally as important that of Yarra City Council whose support of local and Australian artists has been unwavering. We feel blessed to have the opportunity to bring together such an eclectic program of musicians and performing artists, and play a part in helping return confidence in our industry that despite all odds, the show must go on!” – Chris Mitchell, Velodrome Events
