This incredibly cool installation arrived in Melbourne city a week ago for Melbourne Music Week, a festival that highlighted and showcased some of our local talent. The Kube, as it is known, has travelled around the globe and finally landed on our shores, after much hype. The kube itself is a light up, portable bar, complete with stage, licensed bars and cafe (by day). The kubes are synchronised to the music and light up in sequence to sound, coordinated by a Video DJ.

The night I visited we were given red, but they glowed a different colour each night. Below is a video of my mate Dean Benson (who a lot of you would remember from previous shoots) closing the week with a bang! The atmosphere this place created can’t be described in words. Well done Deano! :)
