City of Moonee Valley’s celebrated free and all-ages music festival Illuminate The River is making its triumphant return to the banks of the Maribyrnong on Saturday 19 November, and this year, we're featuring multi-platinum selling artists, ARIA award winners and triple j mainstays in the biggest, boldest and most audacious lineup in the festival's history.


PLEASE NOTE: The health and safety of our crew and public is our top priority, so all water-based activities at Illuminate the River have been cancelled. These activities include the laser show and inflatable regatta.

Instead, we have a few surprises in store. Keep an eye out for roaming performers and glowing neons after dusk.
