The 2010 Next Wave Festival Club

Go Downtown with Next Wave!

This May inject yourself into the 2010 Next Wave Festival Club, in the pumping heart of central city Melbourne.

1000 £ Bend in Little Lonsdale Street (map) has been transformed within an inch of its life by Festival designers People Collective into the city’s most resplendent and social art venue; you won’t have a freaking clue where you are, and that’ll be before you’ve hit the turps! More movement and colour than the world has ever seen!

Drop in any time, day or night, during the Festival and catch up artists, friends, strangers and bogans! (Actually, no bogans, sorry Lleyton Hewitt!). Be at the Club before a Festival show, AND get there afterwards to debrief/recover/come down. WHATEVER! Drink, eat, suck dry the good old fashioned free Wi-Fi. Catch art, performances and public talks. All specially-programmed for your sensory pleasure. (HOT TIP: Stage door Johnnies and Jennies listen up: The Next Wave Festival Club will be the place to meet Festival artists.)

And remember: Drink responsibly! The more you drink responsibly, the more you can drink!

Supported by Next Wave, Nelson Beer and 1000 £ Bend.
