Melbourne's premier big band festival, Big Band Sunsets has been entertaining the community for free for the past 14 years. Local and national swing groups feature along with the big bands, and it's also a platform for school bands across Melbourne to get performance experience.

Held over four Saturdays in February 2019 from 3.30pm to 9pm, head to the Hazel Pierce Reserve on the Mordialloc foreshore in Mordialloc on the 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd Feb. Entertainment commences at 3.30pm each week, with free swing lessons from 6.30pm to 7pm. MoJO's main event runs straight after from 7-9pm. Bring family and friends, perhaps a picnic, rug, or a chair, and get ready for some toe tapping music, and an afternoon of entertainment. Stay in touch with updates on the discussion section of the event page, or the website.
