Meet You After Dark. Geelong After Dark 2016 program released

Geelong After Dark 2016’s full artist line up has now been released, with over 60 artists or groups transforming Central Geelong’s streets, laneways and venues, in a night of discovery.

On 6 May (between 6pm-10pm), the city will be full of an exciting mix of unique and surprising FREE performances, installations and arts experiences. This year, Central Geelong will be divided into four zones, where the activity will take place: Cultural Precinct, Little Malop Street, Moorabool Street, and Waterfront Precinct.

Throughout the evening, people will have the choice to “Just Rock Up”, plan an evening using the program guide or choose one of five curated experiences now available on the Geelong After Dark website.

In a Geelong After Dark first, these curated experiences “Come With Us” will offer spectators the opportunity to choose an evening that specifically relates to their whims and interests. People can choose an evening of “Program Highlights”, “Music/Theatre”, “Multimedia & Visual Arts”, “Interactivity” and/or “Family Friendly” activities.

In another Geelong After Dark first, a Kids Treasure Hunt will get children and families roaming the CBD, hunting for clues and gathering stamps to win major prizes. Kids can collect their treasure maps from the Focus Five Building (Geelong After Dark info point) on Cnr Little Malop Street / Gheringhap Street.

City of Greater Geelong Investment & Attraction General Manager, Brett Luxford said that thousands of people are anticipated to converge in Central Geelong after dusk to discover some of the region’s most edgy arts experiences, placed in some of the most unusual places.

“Now in its third year, this free multi-award winning event will be Geelong’s biggest ‘pop up night of arts’ yet, with over 200 artists involved. Get ready to be surprised,” he said.

The full program is now available via the Geelong After Dark website:  Meet You After Dark.

Geelong After Dark is co-produced by Diversitat and the City of Greater Geelong and a proud supporter of the event.
