Melbourne Recital Centre (MRC) has partnered with Crown Ruler to bring a free outdoor music series to the heart of the Arts Precinct all summer long.

The Sweet Summer Suite is showcasing Melbourne’s best DJs with weekly Thursday and Saturday sets at MRC’s new forecourt as part of the transformed Southbank Boulevard.

Curated by Crown Ruler, the series’ eclectic and genre-bending program features a lineup of artists from Melbourne’s electronic scene.

February will feature sets by Miss Goldie, DJ Yangos, Elle Shimada, dj pgz, DJ Jimmy James, Sophie McAlister, Gallery B, Midnight Tenderness and Winters.

The program continues into March with acts Hybrid Man and Adriana. The series then welcomes back DJ JNETT, College of Knowledge, Miss Goldie, dj pgz, Gallery B, Sophie McAlister, Lori and Zjoso for another round of performances.

Visitors can enjoy the summer sun and warm nights at the open air venue, with signature cocktails and an Asian-fusion menu from Blondie Bar being served alongside pizzas by Script Bar & Bistro.

MRC said the outdoor music series celebrates the city’s rich artistic pedigree and community spirit.

The Sweet Summer Suite will run until Saturday, March 27 and feature two shows every week on Thursdays and Saturdays •
