The City of Melbourne will feature 100% Melbourne music when it brings in the new year with the fireworks on New Years Eve.
Artists to feature on the all-Melbourne Fireworks playlist include Cut Copy, Gypsy & the Cat, 360, Kylie Minogue, Feenixpawl, NERVO & Nicky Romero and The Masters Apprentices.
“Whether you’re at one of our live sites or watching the Channel 7 live broadcast from your own New Year’s Eve party, you will be able to enjoy the original soundtrack choreographed and synchronised exclusively for the midnight fireworks,” the Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said.
“Melbourne music and artists will be celebrated in the soundtrack, along with sound bites from the Melbourne Cup and the unmistakable MCG AFL siren,” he added.
At the live sites at Docklands, Kings Domain, Treasury Gardens and Flagstaff Gardens four local DJs, Strange Talk DJs, Paul Mac, DJ Ms Butt and MZ Rizk, will play music from 9pm to 1am.
People planning on attending any of the city locations on New Years Eve are recommended to catch public transport into the city. All public transport in Melbourne on New Years Eve will be free after 6pm.
