Keen for a free, outdoor, all-ages concert with Ball Park Music, Thelma Plum and heaps more? Well, the MVPs at The Push have got you sorted!

As part of White Night Reimagined, some of Australia’s best acts will come together at Arts Centre Melbourne’s forecourt next month.

Having just rounded out an epic set at Adelaide’s Spin Off Festival, Ball Park Music will play through some of their biggest hits. This will be their first Melbourne show since October last year. They also played Groovin the Moo last April and May, right across the country.

Joining them is Thelma Plum – the folk-pop singer whose newest album Better In Blak became triple j’s Feature Album ahead of its release. On album release day, Thelma took to triple j’s studios performing her track ‘Better In Blak’ live. She also put a spin on Khalid’s ‘Young Dumb & Broke’, with a Lil Nas X twist. Now, between a crazy touring schedule, she’ll stop off at The Push Stage for a very special performance.

Melbourne’s Tyne-James Organ is young, and absolutely killing it. Tyne’s newest track ‘Something New’ is a dark and haunting number. And, broadcasters across the country have been getting amongst it all. White Night Reimagined will be his first Melbourne show since playing Lime Cordiale’s Squeeze Festival at the Forum.

“The Push is super excited to bring this great line-up to an all-ages audience for the closing celebrations of White Night Reimagined,” explains Josh Kane, Acting CEO of The Push.

The Push Stage will come to White Night Reimagined for the first time this year.

What makes this event particularly special is the fact it’s being run by those young people, mostly for young people.

“I’m super excited to get a good look at how the industry works when it comes to big shows,” explains New Slang participant Bea Laufer. She’s very excited to bring Australia’s best acts to Melbourne. “I’m keen to be able to see influential artists show their talent to Melbourne!”

The final acts completing the lineup are TOTTY, who are just wrapping up a mammoth tour with party-rockers Skegss. And opening this free event is Tulliah, who’s been tipped as one to watch in triple j’s Unearthed High Competition.
