Moomba Festival (11~14 March 2016)

A celebrated part of the Melbourne events calendar for 60 years, Moomba will be back with an exciting program of events and family entertainment, making Melbourne the ideal place to be for the Labour Day long weekend.

Held over four days, the festival attracts more than one million visitors to the sun-soaked banks of the Yarra to share in the vibrancy and spirit of our much loved city.

On the Friday night programming will expand in 2016, with the FReeZA Push Start Battle of the Bands Grand Final kicking off on the Main Stage from 5:00pm, followed by headliners Alpine at 8:30pm.


11 - 14 March 2016

Moomba’s Main Arena will play host to headline acts including iconic Melbourne bands Alpine, British India and Tim Rogers & The Bamboos, plus an array of incredible Australian music talent.

Festival favourite the Birdman Rally will be back for 2016, with competitors plunging into the Yarra River for charity from 12:00pm on Sunday 13 March.

The antics are back with the hilarious Birdman Rally, where contestants aim to fly across the river by leaping off a four-metre platform with wings attached to their costumes.. all for a good cause.
