Dinosaurs may have been extinct for over 65 million years, but at least for the past three of those their spirit has been kept alive at Jurassic Lounge.

Set in the Australian Museum, this Festivalists led event showcases music, performance art, comedy and workshops in the atmospheric surrounds of both temporary and permanent exhibition spaces.  Unfortunately, and like all good things, it must come to an end, with a final season guaranteed to ensure it goes out with a bang.

Starting on Tuesday 3rd September and running for ten weeks, the weekly themed nights include, ‘Cowboy night’, ‘Tutti Frutti’ and ‘Dads’ night,’ all leading up to the big extinction party.

My top choice for the opening weeks is the ‘Film and Photography’ night on September 10th, hosted in partnership with Kino Sydney. Local filmmakers will lead a series of workshops in which participants can recreate scenes from Jurassic Park. There will also be Hollywood- inspired burlesque performances and the usual mix of music and fun.
