Winter is slowly winding down in Melbourne, and spring is just around the corner. 

So why not welcome the changing seasons with a night out visiting two of August’s biggest events?

Melbourne has always been a hub of music, entertainment, and shows – and with the weather starting to pick up, all the more reason for you to head out and enjoy all of it!

For example, this August you’ll want to mark your calendars and make space for Hayden James and Melbourne Fashion Week – just two of the high-profile events happening in Melbourne in the coming weeks.

And you can enjoy both of these events (and more) with the help of CBD parking from Le Garage.

Even if you’re just coming down to the city for a casual weekend or work event, our CBD parking garage makes parking fast and simple. 

Best of all, when you pre-book online before you visit, you’ll benefit from our special discount rates! View all rates here and book online now!

If you’re a fan of house music or electronic music in general, you won’t want to miss this show!

Hot off the release of his debut album, local musician Hayden James will be playing in Melbourne for three huge nights!

With tracks that blend soft house grooves with catchy synth melodies, James creates almost otherworldly songs that create a chill, almost Vaporwave sound – just the thing to say farewell to winter!

And clearly, Melburnians aren’t the only ones that have embraced Hayden James’ unique sound: with two ARIA nominations under his belt and performances at Splendour in the Grass, Hayden James is quickly making a name for himself all over Australia.

With only a couple of days left to go until the first show, you’ll want to move quickly if you want to secure yourself a ticket.

And once you’ve done that, book your Forum parking, too!

There’s a reason they call the south-east portion of the CBD (where Le Garage is located) the “Paris-end” of Melbourne.

And towards the end of August, it gets to prove its credentials with Melbourne Fashion Week 2019, Australia’s largest fashion event.

Melbourne Town Hall (as well as several other venues sprinkled throughout the CBD) becomes a runway, where many of Australia’s top labels and designers descend on the city to flaunt their latest collections and dictate the coming season’s trends.

Celebrating its 25th year, Melbourne Fashion is like Christmas for Melbourne fashionistas!

Whether you’re looking for ideas for your summer wardrobe, or simply want to keep your finger on the fashion industry’s pulse, you can’t afford to miss this event!

Melbourne Fashion Week runs from 28th August until 5th September with exhibits, events, and runway shows happening at Town Hall Forecourt. Ensure you don’t miss a thing by checking out the event program here.

Of course, it’s not all about getting up to speed on the latest trends and watching models show off on the runway. This week-long event also features a host of other events, including talks and exhibitions.

Learn AND be entertained

Have you seen Quentin Tarantino’s latest blockbuster, Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood? Are you a big fan of the 60s and 70s fashions it portrays?

Not only can you catch it at the Kino Cinema, but on the 3rd of September, it’ll be preceded by a panel discussing fashions of the era.

With members including academics, critics and the Curator of Fashion at the NGV, it’s sure to be an illuminating and informative evening.

Indigenous fashion

Featuring a huge range of designs and concepts that combine fashion forward designs with tributes to Indigenous culture, Fashion Capsule 3 celebrates the first Australians through fashion.
