The Cave is back as part of Melbourne’s International Jazz Festival with 10 acts, DJs and Jazzaroke across three venues.

A triptych of dark, hidden sounds and flashes, The Cave will occur over two late nights in the city’s laneways. Three intimate Melbourne venues – Hugs&Kisses, Golden Monkey and Nieuw Amsterdam – will oscillate between exotic and extra-terrestrial soundscapes simultaneously.

The night kicks off at 10pm and goes into the early hours of 4am each night.
