On October 28, the Australian Museum will once more be remixed by artists, scientists and DJs as an after-hours playground for adults (and dinosaurs).
Strictly adults only, Jurassic Lounge is an after-hours party filled with wild creatures, strange happenings and the occasional live snake or bat. The event typically sells out in advance so be sure to book now. Wear a costume and get your freak on, you’ll fit right in.
Scroll down for the full line-up.
Saturday 28 October, 7pm – 10:30pm
Australian Museum, 1 William Street, Sydney
$25 in advance, $30 at the door (subject to availability)
To get in you’ll have to get past these fierce ghost drummers. Gain their trust and you’ll be invited to raise the dead in their drumming circles.
Find inner peace with Adriano Cappelletta’s hilarious Vampire Meditation workshops paired with contortionist Jade Twist’s bendy Death-by-Yoga performance.
Learn the moves to Michael Jackson’s Thriller with performer Cody Cabana, then take part in a zombie dance-off in the Silent Disco.
Sign up and let Lucyfer and Tomkenstein find you a scientifically-matched stranger for a 10-minute date: love at first fright… or complete horror show?
Two DJs battle it out for dance-floor supremacy… in complete silence. Wear wireless headsets and tune in for a killer set of dance-floor anthems.
Satisfy your goriest science-geek fantasies, get crafty with a scalpel and learn the tricks of the taxidermy trade.

Most Jurassic Lounge events sell out in advance, don’t be the bloodsucker stuck on the threshold.
Five pop-up bars and two eateries will be open on the night, including our rooftop restaurant, No. 1 William.
It’s Halloween, so you’ll stand out if you don’t, and could go home with cool prizes if you do. Can’t get it sorted? Our make-up artists can apply last-minute gashes and wounds on the night.

They’re borderline compulsory!
Nope, they’re always welcome in the daytime, but Jurassic Lounge is strictly an 18+ event.
There are a handful of lockers, but Jurassic Lounge is best enjoyed when you travel light. Due to security measures, no backpacks allowed.
