Melbourne white night Festival

White Night Melbourne is here again!! But what is it??? Oh it's a night of arts, music, culture, food... Sounds boring.. But it's not!! It starts at 7 pm and goes for exactly 12 hours, non-stop.. yep.. you heard it right, 7pm-7am.. Did that get your attention? How about this.. It's FREE*!! For those of you who missed it last year, make sure you do go this year.. and oh carry some redbull if you wish to make it till 7 am. For those of us who had an awesome time salsa-ing at Fed square last year, let's do it again this year.

 Make sure your camera is charged though.

    After a somewhat confused & slow start it was a fun evening in pleasant, friendly & interesting company - came as we did from the four corners & the seven seas! Great to"meet up with you guys & hope to do it all again sometime in the not too distant future

    Hi all, totally different topic to the current discussion - could anyone recommend a reasonably priced (not cheap) camera to take on an African trip.(climbing Kilimanjaro) can't carry a heavy camera with accompanying lenses so it has to be compact but capable of taking great shots?
    Thank you x

      Actually it's not the low oxygen apparently, it's the low air pressure making your body & especially the brain swell!

      And while Kibo is certainly taller than Everest it isn't nearly as tall as Mauna Kea. (but most of that is under water.)

    I will finally be joining you guys - I'll be the little bloke with the battered orange backpack & snub nosed Pentax DSLR - just in case I don't see the group first!

    Keeping your body awake is one thing but when the brain needs to dream, it will eventually dream even if you are awake. Like the truckies on speed that have crashed or hit something avoiding something else they only dreamed was on the road. So please respect your body's limits & don't push them too hard.
    (Last year I slept for a while at the Southgate Cinema & I wasn't the only one.)

    Korean or Chinese Ginseng will help with the endurance but don't take within hours of your expected bedtime.
    Withania alias Indian Ginseng MAKES me SLEEPIER! "No-Doze" etc & Guarana are sources of caffeine, cheaper & easier to carry than Red Bull but should be calculated as part of your total dose. I'm not sure CoEnzyme Q10 does anything for me, but Chlorophyll seems to improve my endurance. (4 me, like many changes of diet, the effectiveness peaks & then tapers back to near b4 over weeks or months. If you then quit u r worse for a few days but then weeks later it will work again for a week+.)

    What are you referring to with the "Melbourne City Council having the right to charge you for events"?

    February 17, 2014

    • Bill L.

      Hi Daniel, We didn't have to pay for entry last year and there are no plans for this to change this year.

      February 17, 2014

      Last year there were free events and charged events. It didn't seem like Melbourne City Council was charging, but maybe they got a fee or % of takings.

      February 21, 2014

  • Myriam G.

    Sorry, but I will attend another event that day.

      Maybe you can't get to this Meetup. But White Night runs from 7pm Saturday to 7am Sunday. Supposedly much bigger than last year, which I can't IMAGINE! Swanston st will look like early New Year's Day or after the Moomba parade. https://duckduckgo.com...­

    Hey Mick, will it be conducted in the same way you posted this event? I think your comment was 'geez only 34 photos you guys are on the Wrong group we got around[masked] photos'
