Boulevard Lights

Boulevard Lights 2015

The Boulevard in Ivanhoe is one of Melbourne’s biggest and brightest Christmas lights displays.  Since the 1950s, residents have decorated their houses, gardens and windows with illuminating displays of lights, nativity scenes and everything Christmas. And every year, neighbours seem to go to even greater lengths to dazzle onlookers and put on a spectacular show, often with accompanying music. 

The Boulevard Lights will be running from the 12th - 24th December 2015 between 8.30pm and 11.00pm each night.

Busking Opportunities during The Boulevard Lights

We are looking for music groups to perform as buskers during The Boulevard Lights from Saturday 12 December until Friday 24 December.

  • Performances must consist of non-amplified music or singing, and be of a Christmas nature.
  • This permit allows performers to busk at the Boulevard Lights
  • Performances must be between 1 – 2 hours in duration
  • There is no access to power.
  • All equipment required is the responsibility of the group.
  • Successful applicants will be required to stay within a designated performing space. This is to help traffic and pedestrian flow.

Priority will be given to local performers fundraising for a charity/not-for-profit

As we are only programming in one group per evening, there are a limited number of places available. As we receive many applications not all applicants will be able to perform and not all groups will be able to have their evening of preference.

If your group is interested in participating or would like more information please download an Expression of Interest form and return by Monday 30 November 2015.
