Let your precocious pop stars party at Melbourne Music Week's family-friendly rave
Thought your partying days were over after you had kids? Think again. The award-winning Big Fish Little Fish (BFLF) Family Rave has been throwing kid-friendly dance events in London to increasingly large crowds since 2013. Since it's hit Melbourne the events have been a smash hit, and it will be returning this November as part of Melbourne Music Week.
The first thing to know about BFLF is that it's a real-deal rave, with grown-up music like house, techno and rave classics. This time around the event will be held at the Melbourne Music Week hub – ACMI's Gallery One. Don't worry, though, this matinée rave will be strictly age-appropriate, with the BFLF team transforming the club into a pop star and rock star-themed rave.
Kids aged zero to eight and their parents are welcome at the party. Spacey Space and Scott Alert are headlining –you can expect them to drop some serious club bangers (albeit at a much lower volume). Big Fish Little Fish resident DJs Simon Murphy and Dave Juric will also be there, alongside lots of kid-friendly activities. Get keen for face painting, a craft area and a chillout zone for any babies who need some downtime.
Parents can relax a little too at the fully licensed bar before getting their tots ready for the grand finale – a parachute dance on the multi-sensory dance floor.
Big Fish Little Fish's rock stars and pop stars-themed family rave is happening on Sunday, November 18 as part of Melbourne Music Week. Fancy dress is encouraged but not essential, and tickets can be bought online.

These family raves are just so much fun! We’ve taken our 4 month old and 2.5 year old and everyone has loved it! Bring the baby carrier for the little babes and the toddlers just love all the activities and dance floor action. Bring on the next event!
I just loved our first BFLF experience. An incredible vibe, activities at every turn... such a special memory created with our little dude. Can't wait for the next one!
These parties are so much fun for the little ones if they like good tunes, good people, bubbles, glitter and craft. There is a bar for the parents and it’s one of the few times you get to go out and dance since pre-kids. Best fun around on a Sunday afternoon with kids!!
We brought our 6 month old to the Under the Sea themed rave. Fantastic vibe as soon as you step through the door - the whole venue (La di da in the cbd) was completely kitted out and made kid-friendly. Lights, balloons, crafts, a chill out area and more importantly, sweet choones to rave to. A pretty good family event with a difference!
Been to the first two events and they are fantastic and really well thought out. Brilliant to see the kids all getting into the music and such a good vibe at the event. Loads for the kids to do including craft areas and toy areas.
We loved it and cannot recommend it highly enough
