Andy Van headlines our 'Animal Fantastical' rave this November!!
Following our first three SOLD OUT Family Raves we are so excited to bring you one of Australia's leading DJs for over two decades! Andy has been a major figure in the Australian music scene as DJ, a producer with club hit maker Vandalism, as part of one of Australia's most successful electronic acts, Madison Avenue and as a record label owner with internationally renowned Vicious Recordings. He's spun pretty much everywhere and with everyone across Australia and around the world - and we are absolutely thrilled that he is bringing the party to the BFLF massive!
Award-winning Family Rave Big Fish Little Fish is family fun for the post-rave generation of parents. Helping parents be responsibly irresponsible ;)
We are back at Melbourne dance institution Brown Alley and excited to be opening up the whole venue for the party. We'll be dedicating a whole new floor to Craft, Play and Chill creating more room for dancing. There will be more space to sit and watch the action from the Mezzanine when you need a break and even a roof top bar!

Who should come?
For families with younger children (8s and under) although older siblings are welcome. Adults are not admitted unless accompanied by a child. A max of 3 children per adult. If there are more than 4 adults per child in your group please email firstname.lastname@example.org for pre-approval before buying tickets.
Tickets are non-refundable but can be transferred/sold on and if anybody with tickets finds they cannot attend a sold-out event please email email@example.com and BFLF will attempt to put you in touch with people seeking to buy tickets. Each member of your group must have a ticket including pre-walking infants who are free (but ticketed).
Yep, it's a rave :)
Please be aware that events are standing/dancing with limited seating, club lighting rigs (no strobes) are used and events are busy with around 8-900 people at each party - which helps create the rave ambience. Each event is stewarded and risk assessed in advance. Sound levels are decibel checked to be safe for even the smallest of ears.
We may photograph or film small parts of the event and by entering you are giving your permission for these to be used for BFLF promotion purposes.
Prams and Changing
If you can manage it we suggest not bringing a pram. We recommend slings and carriers for comfort and for some heart to heart raving on the dance floor :) We realise some people will need to bring prams and there is a Pram Park but prams are not allowed on the dance floor for safety reasons. Changing facilities will also be available.
Brown Alley is a 5 minute walk from Flagstaff Train Stations or 7 mins from Southern Cross (Bourke Street Exit) There is on-street parking or Secure Parking for $8 flat rate just around the corner the road from the Venue (2 min walk).
