Best Upcoming Events – May 2015

As Melbourne descends into the depths of winter it somehow becomes even cooler — in the ‘impressive event’ sense, not just the Celsius sense.

Here are our picks for the best Melbourne events in May 2015:

Dreamland – Theme Park Music Festival @ Luna Park (May 9) – Imagine a festival inside a theme park with unlimited rides and five stages featuring over 50 DJ’s.

Dreamland Music Fest

Stonnington Jazz Festival (May 14-24) – The City of Stonnington has convinced the superstars of Australia’s jazz elite to descend upon Prahran, South Yarra, and Windsor for an eleven-day jazz extravaganza. Love jazz? Enter our competition for a $400 Jazz Festival Experience.

Stonnington Jazz Festival

Good Beer Week (May 16-24) – 250 events at 180 venues around Melbourne. How does a girl (or boy) pick? We’ve done that for you. Go to places you’ve never been to. Try things you think you might not like (only to find out you do). Just block off nine days of May for beer, okay?

Time Out Melbourne Pub Awards (May 18) – A feature of The Plus Ones calendar, this is the Melbourne bar scene’s night of nights. There’s ample delights from beverages to canapes on hand and you get to mingle with all of your favourite bar tenders. Make sure to enter our competition to win tickets to the night.

Dinner In The Dark (May 23) – “Lime&Tonic have put together a dinner like no other. Dine in the dark at a secret location restaurant and experience a blind tasting that’s sure to be unforgettable.”

Eurovision 2015 @ Bella Union (May 24) – The Plus Ones attended this event last year. It is a great night out and will host a ton of live entertainment (including re-enactments) of the performances from Vienna.

As always, we love to know what you think. If you find more fun things that we’re not aware of let us know!
