See the night sky sparkle this summer as 350 drones light up Docklands to tell stories in the stars. Two eight-minute shows run over Victoria Harbour nightly in an enchanting visual spectacular combined with poetry soundscapes.

From 15 to 24 January, hear ‘Melbourne, Feel the Sound’, a poem about emerging into our lives again and rediscovering Melbourne, by local artist Ren Alessandra, winner of the National Poetry Slam 2020.

From 25 to 30 January, see the Wurundjeri creation story of ‘How The Platypus (Dulai Wurrung) Was Made’ come to life, told and illustrated by Wurundjeri, Dja Dja wurrung and Ngurai illum wurrung artist Mandy Nicholson.

The unique aerial display was developed by drone art company Celestial.

In the event that poor weather prevents the Summer Nights Drone Show from going ahead, a cancellation notice will be posted on this page.

Summer Nights Drone Show is presented by City of Melbourne with support from the Victorian Government and Development Victoria.
