The Wilds is our moonlit forest of stimulation—a fluoro fantasy of art, sound, taste and ice. At a transformed Sidney Myer Music Bowl, you’ll encounter voluminous inflatable sculptures, towering projections and mind-expanding soundscapes in previously inaccessible areas of the iconic venue.
Sprawling structures and eccentric performances blur the lines between the earthly and otherworldly. Beloved Melbourne restaurants serve cult snacks from pop-up kitchens; grab a small plate or glass of Blackhearts & Sparrows-selected wine in the cosy but elevated Up High Bar then step out onto the deck to take in the full view of the Bowl; or go all-in with a multi-course feast in the glowing glasshouse bistro, The Lighthouse.
Finally, ascend the Bowl’s stage to zip around an ice-skating rink, while our choir belts out reconstructed ‘80s and ‘90s hits over the ice. The Wilds is our trippy trip for young saplings, curious shrooms and old growth trees alike.
