White Night unlikely

08 May 2014

White Night is unlikely to be extended into Docklands next year, with organisers estimating it would cost $500,000 to do so.

Speaking at the Docklands Community Forum on April 30, Destination Docklands CEO Anita Donnelly said she had recently met with the organisers of the major arts event, who told her it would require half a million dollars to extend the event into Docklands.

The event was first held in February 2013 and involved the city being transformed by art, film, music, live performance, lighting installations and interactive events between the hours of 7pm and 7am.  

Activities stretched along Elizabeth, Swanston and Russell steeets from the CBD across to St Kilda Rd and the Southbank precinct.

White Night was again held in February this year and, with a reported attendance of 500,000 people, there were some complaints of over-crowding.

Ms Donnelly said with no funding to bring the event to Docklands, she hoped this potential crowd crush would be enough to force the organisers to extend the event into Docklands.
